Mistakes are made in every profession. However, when a mistake or error is made in the health care profession, the result can be a serious injury, harm or death to the patient. Even the simplest medical mistake or error can cause devastating results. When a health care professional provides substandard care, the injured patient may have a medical malpractice claim against that individual or facility where the injury occurred.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, you should contact the experienced San Diego medical malpractice attorneys at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas. We will fight for the settlement that you deserve.

California Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Claims
Similar to other personal injury cases, there is a specific time period during which you can file a medical malpractice claim. Under California law, medical malpractice claims must be commenced within one year from the date that you knew of the injuries, or through the exercise of reasonable diligence should have known of the injury and of its negligent cause, or three years from the date of the actual injury, whichever comes first.
