If you or a loved one has suffered due to the negligence of a medical professional, hold those health care professionals accountable and prevent these wrongs from happening to someone else. This can be accomplished by filing a medical malpractice lawsuit alongside the Law Offices of Bruce M. Bunch.
All hospitals, doctors and nurses are capable of medical negligence. The following are a few of the most common types of medical malpractice cases seen in and around California:
Several forms of compensation may be awarded in hopes of easing the malpractice victim’s financial suffering caused by negligence in the medical profession. Compensatory damages are most common, these typically cover pain and suffering, medical bills (past and future), loss of earnings (past and future), loss of household services and emotional distress.
If you believe that you or a loved one has suffered due to negligence in the health care industry, it is imperative that you seek the counsel of an attorney as soon as possible. This is particularly true if you have recently suffered medical complications from negligence you believe took place years ago.
In California, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice is just one year. If you fail to file a lawsuit within one year of the date of injury — or one year after you discover damage caused by the injury — you may render yourself ineligible for compensation. The statute of limitations for a birth injury or for minors may be longer than one year. The sooner you get in touch with a medical malpractice lawyer, the better.
You deserve payment for the suffering caused by those who fail to uphold industry standards. Your best bet for obtaining this compensation is to work with a respected medical malpractice attorney such as Bruce M. Bunch. Contact the Law Offices of Bruce M.
