Common Medical Injuries Cases
While health care providers can’t guarantee the success of a treatment, they can -- and, by law, they must -- owe you a duty: to follow accepted standards of care. All too often, however, they fail. The numbers -- and the consequences -- are staggering. A 2008 study by HealthGrades, the nation’s leading health care ratings organization, found that medical errors resulted in more than 238,000 potentially preventable deaths between 2004 and 2006 -- and that was just looking at Medicare patients. When physicians, nurses, dentists, and therapists do their jobs right, lives are saved. When they are negligent, lives are damaged -- and lost.
Medical malpractice can be far ranging, and incidents can include:
- Prescribing incorrect medication
- Anesthesia negligence
- Failure to diagnose a tumor while reading an X-ray
- Failure to order necessary and appropriate medical tests
- Failure to diagnose a condition in time to treat it properly
- Birth injury
- Brain injury
- Emergency room negligence
- Incorrect diagnosis that results in a failure to treat a medical condition
- Failure to refer a case to a medical specialist
Oakland, San Jose, San Mateo & San Francisco Medical Malpractice Attorneys
At Mary Alexander & Associates, we’ve spent the past quarter century advocating the rights of those harmed by medical negligence. We’ve obtained compensation and answers for our clients -- and we’ve given them something their health care providers didn’t: a new start.
We know that winning medical malpractice cases takes more than first-rate legal skills. It takes a scientific background to understand the issues, work with the best expert witnesses, and devise the most effective litigation strategies. It takes carefully prepared courtroom exhibits to explain events to the jury. It takes the realization that the client is always the top priority; that we’re not just taking on their case, but their cause.
These are the qualities we bring to every matter we handle. And it’s how we’ve developed our reputation for aggressive, successful advocacy throughout California -- and against some of the biggest, most powerful health care providers in the state. They weren’t there for you We’ll always be at your side.
