Woodland Hills Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Understanding Medical Malpractice Cases in Woodland Hills, CA
Medical malpractice, also referred to as medical negligence, occurs when a medical professional (a doctor, nurse, dentist, plastic surgeon, etc.) acts in such a manner as to cause harm to a patient. Malpractice is any illegal, negligent, immoral or unethical action by a professional or a person in an official position. This then results in a failure by that person to perform the duties or fulfill the responsibilities associated with that profession. In the field of medicine, malpractice can result in serious injury or even the
wrongful death of a patient.
A Woodland Hills personal injury attorney from our firm can represent you if you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice. By filing a claim or complaint against the doctor, hospital or other medical care facility responsible for your injury, your attorney can help you collect a settlement or compensation in order to pay for future medical expenses, wage loss and possibly much more. Additionally, your attorney can help you bring that person to justice for what they have done. Their failure to uphold their duty as a medical professional is an action which should not and cannot be tolerated if we want to feel any measure of safety when visiting the doctor.
