MALPRACTICE

Helping Victims of Medical Malpractice Hold Negligent Doctors and Medical Professionals Accountable

If you or a loved one has been harmed due to an act of malpractice on the part of a doctor or other medical professional, you have the right to hold them accountable for what they have done.

You go to the doctor with the expectation they have the right treatment for your condition, or at the very least, can relieve your symptoms. Your health has rendered you helpless, so you place your life in your doctor’s hands, unaware of the potential medical catastrophes that lie ahead. This sentiment of blind trust in doctors and medical professionals is echoed throughout the minds of millions of Americans, who are later forced to live with the consequences.

According to a recent study by John Hopkins, medical errors claim the lives of more than 250,000 people each year, making it the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer. Having your or a family member’s condition worsen due to a doctor or hospital’s negligence can be a devastating emotional blow from which you may never recover.

The law firm of Owen, Patterson & Owen (OPO) is here to help you seek justice. While no amount of money will sufficiently compensate for the destruction of your physical health, receiving compensation will alleviate your financial burden as you heal. Our law firm has more than four decades of experience serving Southern California, and we’re ready to put our expertise to work for you.

      What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?

      Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other medical professional injures a patient due to negligence. This negligent act may include misdiagnosis, failure in medical treatment, prescribing the wrong medication, or giving the patient the wrong dosage.

      Examples of Medical Negligence Cases We Handle

      We can handle all types of medical malpractice cases, including:

      • Dangerous Pharmaceuticals.
      • Birth Injuries.
      • Obstetric Malpractice.
      • Nursing Medication Errors.
      • Cancer Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose.
      • Surgical Errors.

      How We Get Results and Our Approach to Medical Malpractice Cases

      At our law firm, we understand how convoluted medical malpractice cases can be. It can be onerous to prove that the doctor or medical staff’s actions amounted to negligence without the proper resources. A successful case outcome requires the assistance of lawyers experienced in handling medical malpractice claims and understanding the unique nuances involved in these cases. It also necessitates having access to a large network of trusted professionals who will meticulously examine the circumstances surrounding your injury to prove negligence.

      We’re not only up to these challenges but have a long history of turning them into successful settlements and verdicts at trial. At OPO, we enlist experts, construct exhibits, and turn to trusted medical professionals to ensure we have approached your claim from all angles. We will take every step we believe is necessary to make it clear to the opposition that you deserve every bit of the compensation we’re requesting.

      Here are a few of the results OPO has produced for our clients:

      • A patient in the intensive care unit (ICU) became disconnected from the ventilator. However, the nursing staff at a Northern California hospital had shut off the alarm, so the alarm didn’t signal. The oxygen deprivation caused brain damage, resulting in a $1.2 million settlement for the patient.
      • A urologist’s failure to dilute radioactive dye injected into the plaintiff’s penis burned away tissue in the corpus cavernosum, causing permanent impotence. With our firm’s representation, the plaintiff received a $550,000 settlement.
