About San Diego Medical Law

A San Diego medical professional should never cause you harm while treating you for an illness or an injury. Unfortunately, medical negligence occurs frequently. Whether you sustained injuries during treatment with a doctor, an osteopath, a dentist or any other medical professional, they or their insurance carriers should pay for the damages they cause. Physicians rarely acknowledge that they caused an injury and their negligence is often difficult to prove. If a doctor chooses to report an adverse event to their malpractice carrier, the doctor often retains settlement approval rights. Resolving a medical injury claim requires legal knowledge and malpractice experience. It’s important to consult with a San Diego medical malpractice lawyer as soon as you suspect your doctor has committed a negligent act. You should never try to resolve your claim on your own.

Medical Negligence is Common but Underreported

Negligence, malpractice, and error are often used interchangeably when addressing physician-caused harm. Medical events occur frequently, and they happen under a variety of circumstances. Surgeons commit errors during surgery and perform unnecessary operations. Physicians misdiagnose or fail to diagnose medical conditions, so they sometimes treat an illness the patient doesn’t have. An obstetrician’s actions or failure to act often cause brain injury when a newborn suffers from oxygen deprivation during delivery. Doctors prescribe the wrong medications and pharmacists improperly dispense the wrong doses. These and many other negligent medical acts cause harm and sometimes death. A 2016 Johns Hopkins medical error study, explains why medical errors go undetected, undocumented, or unchallenged. When a team of researchers studied death certificates, they found that medical errors occurred frequently but were often undocumented as errors. The Johns Hopkins team determined that 250,000 deaths per year occurred because of a physician’s or a medical professional’s error. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention documents deaths nationwide. The information is inaccurate because the official death certificate submission form doesn’t include a “medical error” classification as a cause of death. The form requires a description of the “immediate illness” and the “underlying illness.” There’s no guidance for documenting deaths caused by medical negligence or inappropriate care. Because of this reporting anomaly, tracking medical errors remains a complicated undertaking.

It’s been quite a journey but wow! Where do I begin? Gomez Trial Attorneys came highly recommended by my mom’s lawyer and they did not disappoint. Right from the beginning, they were nothing but professional, sincere and the thing I appreciated the most was how responsive they were to any questions I would have regarding my children’s case. What happened to my kids was a tragedy but “Team Lowe” went above and beyond to make sure my kids were well compensated. They were very organized and they helped me so much along the way. I know they worked very hard on my Children’s case and the end result was everything I could ever hope for. Thank you again so much from the bottom of my heart! I appreciate you all ❤️
