California Medical Malpractice Attorneys

What is Medical Malpractice?

Professional negligence broadly refers to a professional’s conduct which falls below acceptable standards within that professional’s industry or practice, which causes damage or harm. Professional negligence is not limited to any particular profession per se, and certainly includes the conduct of health care professionals, (doctors, nurses, therapists, hospital staff, etc.), legal professionals, (attorneys paralegals, etc.) accountancy professionals, (certified public accountants, etc.) and numerous others.

How Long Do I Have to File a Med-Mal Lawsuit?

In the state of California, you only have one year to file a lawsuit against the medical professional or hospital that caused your injury. The clock starts counting down when the injury is discovered, or should have been discovered as determined by the court, not from the date the injury occurred. Many injuries that result from medical negligence do not present symptoms right away. It can also take time to investigate and discover that your injury was caused by medical negligence.

Medical malpractice cases involving minor children have a statute of limitations of three years from the date of the alleged malpractice. If the child is under the age of six, the statute of limitations can be extended to their eighth birthday, if that provides a larger window in which to file the lawsuit.
