What is medical malpractice?

Medical Malpractice occurs when a health care provider is either negligent, or deviates from accepted standards of medical care and causes injury or death to a patient. Medical errors can have very serious consequences and life-long effects on unsuspecting patients, ranging from medical bills and lost wages to wrongful death. Since a single mistake can have such severe repercussions, medical professionals are held to a higher standard in terms of conduct and performance. If you've suffered physical or emotional injury resulting from medical malpractice in Fresno, with the help of a medical malpractice lawyer you maybe be able to take legal action against the responsible party in civil court.

Anesthesia Errors
The anesthesiologist plays an important and complicated role in a surgical procedure. Particularly during longer procedures, the patient must be carefully monitored to ensure no problems arise. Care must also be taken in bringing the patient back from anesthesia. Read more about anesthesia errors

Cancer Misdiagnosis
Because cancer is a progressive disease, it is absolutely crucial for it to be diagnosed as early as possible. If a doctor misses the signs and symptoms of cancer or fails to order additional tests that would indicate that a patient's symptoms may be cancer-related, this doctor may be held accountable.
