Riverside Medical Malpractice Attorney

Riverside Medical Malpractice Attorneys

We trust that health care providers in Riverside will provide a high standard of care, perform their duties with competence, and, above all, observe the caregiver’s motto: first, do no harm. While most health care practitioners do provide exceptional care to their patients, a Johns Hopkins University study found that 250,000 Americans are injured or killed by medical malpractice or negligence every year.

As with any profession, mistakes happen in health care, but some of them are preventable and are the direct result of medical malpractice or negligence. When a health care provider acts negligently or fails to act, the result can be serious, leading to severe and sometimes fatal injuries for their patients. If you have been a victim of medical malpractice, you should immediately consult with a top-rated Riverside medical malpractice lawyer to learn more about California law, your rights, and your legal options.

Who is the negligent party in a medical malpractice suit?

In most medical malpractice cases, the negligent party is a doctor. However, any healthcare provider or facility can also be sued for medical malpractice or medical negligence. At the Law Offices of Samer Habbas, we have built successful cases against the following healthcare professionals:

  • Dentists
  • Nurses
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Hospitals
  • Outpatient clinics
  • Surgeons
  • Obstetricians
  • Emergency care physicians
  • Other healthcare providers

What makes a healthcare provider guilty of malpractice?

It is important to note that not all injuries are grounds to pursue damages in a medical malpractice lawsuit. If a doctor or health care practitioner provides a reasonable level of care that a typical health care provider would have provided in the same situation, and the patient still suffers injuries, pain, or even death, it isn’t grounds for a lawsuit.

For a healthcare provider to be guilty of malpractice, we must prove the following:

  • The health care provider had a duty of care, meaning the patient sought and received care from them, and the provider was made aware of any injuries, ailments, or other health issues.
  • The provider breached that duty of care, and that negligence caused injury or death to the patient.
