Holding Negligent Medical Providers Responsible
When you visit the doctor or hospital, you reasonably expect that your health care providers will help you feel better, not worse. Unfortunately, mistakes occur that can worsen your illness or injury or even create new ones. If you or a loved one sustained a new or worsened injury due to the negligence of your medical provider, you may have a valid personal injury claim.
Our medical malpractice attorneys at Tiedt & Hurd have years of experience helping clients in Corona, Riverside county and throughout California fight for compensation. We work with every client personally, taking the time to listen to your story, hear your concerns and understand your goals. Medical malpractice cases often involve a tremendous amount of complex medical evidence and requires an experienced attorney to help guide you through the process.
A Simple Medical Error Can Cause Devastating Consequences
Every doctor owes a duty of care to their patients. When a physician breaches this duty, whether through negligence or recklessness and causes harm, the injured patient may have a valid medical malpractice claim.
Mistakes can happen at any point of the treatment process. ER doctors may fail to diagnosis a serious condition or anesthesia errors during surgery can cause damage and trauma. Regardless of the cause, our attorneys will help you build a strong case to hold your provider accountable and obtain the compensation you deserve.
Common causes of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical errors
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to properly treat a condition
- Prescription drug errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Birth errors
In medical malpractice injury cases, you can obtain compensation for economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages include compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and lost future income. Noneconomic damages compensate you for pain and suffering and mental anguish. If you lost a loved one due to a medical error, we can help you file a wrongful death claim on their behalf.
