Medical Malpractice: Practice Areas
Our law firm represents patients in all types of medical malpractice claims, whether these are filed against hospitals,
nurses or other medical professionals or health care facilities. We can even help if you have coverage by Kaiser and therefore are prevented from filing suit in civil court. This website contains helpful information regarding all types of medical malpractice claims that our San Jose firm takes on, including:
Diagnosis is a key part of the care that a medical professional provides to a patient. In spite of the fact that there are many thousands of different illnesses or injuries that a person may be suffering from, it is up to the doctor to thoroughly evaluate the patient's symptoms, medical history and test results to determine what condition the patient is suffering from. Only a correct diagnosis will enable the doctor to then administer the proper treatment. Unfortunately, a misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose a medical condition may have serious consequences on a patient's well-being. A patient may be improperly discharged when experiencing the early symptoms of a heart attack, a patient may be administered the wrong medication, or a patient may be subjected to an unnecessary surgical procedure. With a progressive disease such as cancer, early diagnosis may be the patient's only chance of survival. Click here to read more
