Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Los Angeles
We Fight for Those Who Have Suffered at the Hands of Negligent or Careless Medical Teams
As a patient, doctors and other medical professionals and the hospitals and clinics where they work and practice owe you a duty and responsibility. They must provide you with a high level of care that a reasonably skilled and competent medical professional, with a similar background and in the same medical community, would offer. If and when medical professionals and facilities do not provide a reasonable level of care, and you or a loved one is harmed as a result, you may have a medical malpractice case.
In many such cases, the injurious action is not intentional. Malpractice more often occurs because a medical professional acted negligently, lacked proper skills or judgment, or did not give or receive proper supervision. If you have been injured by the actions of a medical professional or facility, you should consult with one of our medical malpractice attorneys as soon as possible in order to protect your rights.

When to Bring a Medical Malpractice Case
Recently, it’s been reported that medical errors that occur in hospitals and other health care facilities are the third-leading cause of death in the nation, behind only heart disease and cancer. Medical errors cause the deaths of approximately 251,000 patients every year and injure numerous others. A report by the Institute of Medicine called this problem an “epidemic” of preventable medical errors in our health care facilities, which seems apt given these numbers.
When someone files a claim for medical malpractice, it usually means that they or a loved one were injured due to negligent or intentional actions of a medical professional or facility. In order to establish a medical professional or facility’s liability, you typically must prove the medical professional or facility breached their duty of care owed to you and that that breach caused your injury. Many medical malpractice cases arise from the following medical errors:
- Deviating from proper protocol;
- Not providing proper treatment;
- Surgical mistakes;
- Flawed anesthesia administration;
- Inadequate testing;
- Prescribing the wrong medication or providing improper dosages;
- A misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a condition;
- Failure to properly assess a patient’s medical history;
- Not fully educating a patient about any potential risks that might be associated with a certain treatment, procedure, or medication; and,
- Premature discharge from the hospital or inadequate follow-up care.
In some cases, the injuries and illnesses that are caused by these mistakes can necessitate further treatment; in worst-case scenarios, the victims die. All medical procedures come with some possible side effects and complications, but when the care team makes an error, those who have been affected deserve justice. Have you or a loved one suffered due to medical malpractice? If you think you have, even if your complaint is not listed above, we are here to listen and offer legal advice.
Addressing Medical Malpractice
If you’ve been hurt by the negligent or intentional acts of a medical professional or facility, be sure to seek proper or corrective medical treatment right away. It may be helpful to seek out another doctor or at least receive a second opinion so you can be confident in your treatment plan.
If you ignore an injury caused by malpractice, you may be setting yourself up for more serious complications. Not only could this have serious health affects for the rest of your life but you’re also putting your right to recover full compensation at risk by refusing curative action.
When you choose Robins Cloud LLP to handle your malpractice case, our knowledgeable attorneys and experts will work hard to make sure you obtain the compensation you deserve, which may include:
- Any medical expenses, whether they are past, present, or future;
- The pain and suffering that you’ve had to endure;
- Any wages that you’ve lost due to your injury or illness and any lost future earning potential;
- Lost quality of life; and
- Punitive damages.
While financial compensation will not cure or correct a medical error, or bring back a loved one, compensation may be able to alleviate some of the stress that goes along with mounting medical expenses or lost wages.
