Experienced California Medical Malpractice Lawyers

A special relationship exists between physicians and their patients. Physicians have a responsibility to their patients to use the degree of skill, care and diligence that is generally exercised by similar members of the medical profession. Medical malpractice results when a medical professional breaches that duty through negligence or recklessness and causes injury to a patient. Medical malpractice victims may recover compensation for their injuries, including past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost income.
