San Francisco Medical Errors Lawyer
Medical Mistakes and Medical Malpractice in San Francisco
Mistakes happen in every field, but in the field of medicine these may have disastrous results. In fact, doctors are held to a higher standard of conduct in regard to patient care. Almost any failure to provide proper medical treatment or care may be grounds for a patient to take legal action - if this failure caused injury to the patient. If a medical error was the cause of your or a loved one's injuries and you are interested in discussing this matter with an attorney, call our offices at 800-670-8142. A San Francisco medical errors lawyer can evaluate the particular situation to determine what legal options you have in moving forward with a claim.
Medical errors may be linked to virtually any type of medical malpractice or negligence, including birth injuries, surgical mistakes, nursing errors, anesthesia injuries, misdiagnosis, medication errors and hospital errors. All it takes is one mistake. A doctor not fully reviewing a patient's medical history, a nurse forgetting to note down that she administered a certain medication, a pharmacist accidentally filling a prescription with the wrong dose or the wrong drug - any of these situations may forever change a patient's life by causing injury and placing him or her in a situation where substandard medical care was therefore provided.
