San Bernardino Medical Malpractice Attorneys With a Proven Record of Success
We expect doctors, dentists, nurses and other medical professionals to perform their duties at a very high level as they make decisions that affect their patients’ lives. Most of them take their responsibilities very seriously and put the health and well-being of their patients above all other considerations. Unfortunately, not every health care provider has the same level of professionalism, skill or dedication to the people under his or her care. If a patient suffers injury or death due to negligence, the health care provider can be held liable for damages in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Have you or a close family member suffered an injury you think was caused by negligence? If you want to explore your legal options by consulting with an experienced San Bernardino medical malpractice lawyer, call our law offices today.
Damages awarded in a settlement or medical malpractice lawsuit aren’t about getting even; they’re about justice. Call us today at 888-848-5084 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.
Statutes of Limitations to File Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Can Be as Short as One Year
In California, the statutes of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit against a negligent health care provider vary a great deal. They can vary according to who experienced the injury, when the injury occurred, when the injured party knew about the injury, whether the injured party was a minor or adult and many other circumstances unique to each case. This is one of the many reasons why injured people and their families should speak with San Bernardino medical malpractice attorneys like us. We can explain whether their injuries were caused by negligence, the type of damages to which they may be entitled and the maximum damages allowed by law. We can also answer any questions they may have.
