If you or someone you love suffered injury as a patient in Oakland due to any type of medical error, it is important to talk to a lawyer about your options in filing a medical malpractice claim. A professional with experience in this field will be able to evaluate your particular case to determine whether you may have a valid medical malpractice case against the responsible doctor or other health care professional.
An Oakland medical error may include any mistake or unintentionally wrongful action committed by a medical professional. These errors may be very minor and may cause a patient little to no injury or may be severe, unreasonably risking the life and health of a patient. Medical mistakes may be linked to medication errors, surgical injuries, postoperative infection, misdiagnosis, birth injuries, anesthesia errors and much more. How they will impact a patient will vary depending on the circumstances of the particular situation, and as such it is important to properly evaluate this matter to determine whether you have grounds for a lawsuit and what your case may be worth.

An inexperienced doctor or nurse, understaffing, poor communication between the patient and doctor or between doctors, documentation errors, overworked medical care professionals, and illegible handwriting may all cause a medical error of some kind. A patient may be able to file a medical malpractice claim or a medical error if this error has resulted in substandard care and some form of injury to the patient.
