Los Angeles Medical Malpractice Attorney
First do no harm. That's a principle doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals learn in their training and try to live by every day. Most medical workers are responsible professionals who are committed to their patients. However, even well-meaning doctors make mistakes that can have a devastating effect on a patient's health.
In fact, preventable medical errors cause as many as 195,000 patient deaths each year in U.S. hospitals, according to a study by HealthGrades, Inc. That would make medical errors the sixth leading cause of death in America.
If you have been the victim of medical malpractice or if someone you love suffered a wrongful death due to a medical mistake, please contact the Law Offices of George A. Gallegos in Monterey Park or Downtown Los Angeles, California, today. Our medical malpractice lawyers represent people who have been injured by all types of medical malpractice, including:
When dealing with both the fields of medicine and the law, it can be nearly impossible for a health care consumer to determine what happened and who is at fault. Our Los Angeles medical malpractice lawyers will gather your medical records and have them reviewed by an independent medical expert to determine if your physician failed to follow proper practices or if the hospital or other health care facility disregarded regulations or standards of care. If you were a victim of medical malpractice, we will aggressively pursue financial compensation for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical bills.
We have won medical malpractice claims for people just like you. Many of them pursue a malpractice lawsuit in order to prevent others from suffering a similar fate. It costs you nothing to determine if you have a valid medical malpractice claim. Call us today to arrange an initial consultation.
