Catastrophic Medical Malpractice

Agoura Hills Catastrophic Medical Malpractice Attorney

Helping Clients Get Justice in Los Angeles

You don’t expect to suffer a serious injury when you check into a hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of patients every year suffer preventable injuries when they are under treatment in a hospital.

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury in a hospital as a result of the negligence of medical personnel, talk to a Los Angeles medical malpractice lawyer at Effres & Effres to discuss filing a claim for compensation.

Medical Malpractice Statistics

As many as 440,000 patients die every year because of medical malpractice. The American Medical Association estimates that medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States.

Common Causes of Medical Malpractice

There are several ways in which hospital negligence by doctors, nurses, technicians and other hospital personnel can contribute to injury.

They include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Failure to identify and protect nerves and organs during surgery
  • Failure to diagnose an illness in time
  • Failure to order diagnostic or lab tests in time
  • Failure to treat in a timely manner
  • Incorrect treatments
  • Medication prescription errors
  • Medication administration errors
  • Operation of the wrong body part
  • Failure to use proper hand hygiene practices
  • Failure to use proper catheter handling practices
  • Inadequate prevention of bed sores
  • Inadequate equipment sterilization
  • Incorrect use of radiation equipment

Pursuing Negligent Individuals

All of these factors can contribute to serious injury and even death. The kinds of injuries that are the result of medical negligence can be catastrophic, and can cause severe pain and trauma. For instance, failure to handle catheters properly in an ICU can contribute to potentially deadly central line-associated bloodstream infections.

    Our Clients' Success Stories

    • "Thanks to you, you made a bad topsy-turvy affair a very easy ordeal."
      Dear Mr. Effres, We just once again wanted to thank you so very much, for your fine (I should say “great”) handling of Anne’s case. We have never had to “go to court,” or sue anyone in the past and really had no idea where to start with any of the details. Thanks to you, you made a bad topsy-turvy affair a very easy ordeal on our behalf. And my husband and I really appreciate the time and effort you gave the case. I hope we never have to do anything like this again, but should something like this happen you can be sure of hearing from us again – Thank you very, very much. With warmest regards
      - F & D
    • "So pleased to win the case, through your legal expertise."
      Dear Mr. Effres, Please allow us to make your acquaintance. We are writing at the urging of Mr. Gusa, who shared with us the lovely history behind our receiving a beautiful six-passenger golf cart. As you know, he is a fine man and he was so pleased to win the case, through your legal expertise, so as to provide us with this unexpected gift. We would never have conceived of having such a large golf cart. Now that we have it, we are discovering how very valuable it is for being able to take a group of our distinguished guests all together on a tour around the monastery grounds. Perhaps one day circumstances will be such that you find yourself in Arizona. If so, we would be pleased to invite you on a tour of the monastery! With best regards by X. N.

    • "He never failed to answer my questions, and always gave me valuable advice"
      I found Effres & Associate by chance. Not knowing what to do after my accident, I surfed on the web and came across this company. After reviewing the testimonials, I decided to call them. For some reason, I did not want to call those big law firms that have big billboards everywhere. I went to talk to Justin on the next day, and found him to be a truly concerned young attorney. He is not a pushy lawyer, but always friendly and professional. He never failed to answer my questions, and always gave me valuable advice. After almost two years dealing with the case, Justin brought a successful ending to the case. Thanks, Justin.
