Medical Malpractice Attorney in Santa Monica

When we take on a medical malpractice case, we are determined to fight not only for the compensation deserved, but for justice. A civil claim is often the only way that an injured patient or their families can get the closure that they need, as well as the financial support to care for a seriously injured loved one. We are particularly concerned with the lives and health of children, and represent families who have a child that has suffered permanent physical damage through malpractice in birth injuries or pediatric meningitis or other dangerous situation that resulted from a failure to diagnose, or a failure to take the right action early enough to avoid permanent injury. We also provide representation in cases of injury caused by radiation, any anesthesia error, and provide legal counsel in cases of Kaiser medical malpractice or legal malpractice.

Those that practice in the mental health field that have failed to recognize the severe distress of a patient who subsequently commits suicide could seek justice through a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit. Many of our successful claims have involved medication errors, emergency room errors, cosmetic surgery errors, surgical errors, misdiagnosis, misdiagnosing cancer, medical negligence, blood transfusion injuries, brain injuries, paralysis, infections in hospitals, medical equipment failure, contaminated instruments, or wrongful death.

Our legal team is a highly committed group of attorneys that have achieved exceptional results through their hard work and determination to seek justice for those who have been seriously injured through medical malpractice. When you entrust your health to a medical professional, and then suffer from a serious illness, condition or lose a loved one, the damages extend far beyond the economic. We pursue both economic and non-economic damages for our clients, and know how to fight for you, your family, and your right to justice and compensation.
