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 Central California including Madera, Tulare, Kingsburg, or Hanford counties, call the experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian today. Since 1992, our law firm has held doctors and hospitals accountable by successfully representing malpractice victims and winning maximum compensations.


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 medical malpractice attorneys immediately.

Gerald Tomassian represented me in a 2-year divorce which proved to be a very difficult one. I wasn’t confident going forward with the battle, but Mr. Tomassian assured me he was there to handle all the pressures. I could not have managed the stress and decisions that went along with my case without Gerald guiding me through. He is very professional, logical, reasonable, and just a nice guy. I will be hiring him to handle my will as well. I trust him and would recommend him for your legal needs. – Jamie Abney
