When a doctor or another healthcare professional fails to treat you by established professional standards or fails to do what any responsible healthcare provider would do in a similar situation, it’s medicinal negligence. In California, if you are a victim of malpractice, you can be fully compensated for medical expenses, lost wages, and related costs. The state limits awards for pain and suffering to $250,000. If you’ve been harmed by medical malpractice in Fresno, Madera, Tulare, Kingsburg, or Hanford counties, call the experienced Fresno medicinal negligence attorneys at Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian today. Since 1992, our Fresno-based law firm has held doctors and hospitals accountable by successfully representing malpractice victims and winning maximum compensations.
MISDIAGNOSIS CAN BE DEADLY
A misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or failure to diagnose a stroke, heart attack, or cancer can be a life-threatening kind of malpractice. Misdiagnosis happens frequently; so do surgical mistakes. Just a moment of carelessness or neglect in the operating room can lead to a punctured organ or internal bleeding, and we’ve all probably seen news stories about doctors removing the wrong organ or amputating the wrong limb. If you’re the victim of any of these scenarios, call our Fresno medical malpractice attorneys immediately.
AGGRESSIVE LEGAL REPRESENTATION
Birth injuries are a particularly tragic result of medicinal negligence. Mistakes by obstetricians, maternity nurses, and midwives can injure a mother or a baby sometimes permanently. The most common birth injuries include Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy, and brachial palsy. We aggressively represent families seeking justice for children injured at birth.
Medical malpractice isn’t limited to the hospital; it can also happen at the pharmacy. The wrong prescription, a prescription wrongly filled, or the wrong directions can be dangerous and sometimes deadly. Call our Fresno medicinal negligence attorneys at once if you suspect you’ve been made sick by prescription medication.
