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.
