Are you in need of a San Diego medical malpractice lawyer? Thousands of people in the United States die each year as the result of medical error. According to a comprehensive and highly regarded hospital study by Harvard University, more than 1 million people suffer injuries each year as a result of mistakes caused by doctors, anesthesiologists, residents, nurses, technicians and malfunctioning medical devices. Medical malpractice also occurs in other settings, such as doctor’s offices or nursing homes. Most of the victims never know their injury was due to medical error. But investigations into such personal injury cases often reveal medical malpractice on the part of doctors, nurses and other health care professionals. Whether failing to timely diagnose a medical condition, inattention to patients, or incorrectly prescribed medications, the results are often catastrophic. Patients suffer injuries ranging from birth defects to brain damage to spinal cord injuries to death. People also contract infections while being hospitalized.

Medical malpractice is the failure of a health care provider to treat and care for a patient with a reasonable degree of expertise and compassion. If a physician was careless, lacked proper skills or disregarded standardized rules, a jury may find the health care provider negligent. If damages resulted from such negligence, monetary compensation may be awarded. Hospitals can be liable for the negligence of their employees, including staff nurses and technicians.
Medical malpractice is common, particularly in hospitals. It can occur during various stages of care, during something as complicated as surgery or as simple as the prescribing of drugs. In fact, a study by the Institutes of Medicine recently found that medication errors occur on average once a day to every hospital patient, resulting in serious injuries and thousands of patient deaths.
