We all trust our doctors to take our health, and sometimes our lives, into their hands. We don’t expect them to be negligent and cause injury to us or our loved ones. If you or a family member have suffered injury due to a doctor’s negligence, a medical malpractice attorney from Ariel Law Group will fight to get you the justice you deserve.
In some situations, medical malpractice can result in death. Whether this happens at once or months or years after the incident, family members must mourn the loss of a loved one. They may even lose the financial security their loved ones provided for the family and risk serious financial distress.
Our team has helped spouses, children, and other relatives file wrongful death lawsuits to recoup expenses for the loved one before their passing and provide ongoing support to the family.
The short answer is yes. Medical malpractice cases are not like other personal injury cases, which makes it important to consult with and hire a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.

When you hire a medical malpractice attorney, your attorney will evaluate your claim to make sure that the negligent party or parties are held accountable and to ensure that you get the compensation you need to recover and get back to your life. This includes costs for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. Damages may even include the cost of therapy and psychological counseling. In addition to this, working with experienced attorneys will connect you to medical professionals and consultants that will help strengthen your case.

Possible compensation in a medical malpractice suit may be general damages, special damages, and punitive damages.
What you are entitled to may not yet be clear to you, but an experienced medical malpractice attorney will analyze your case to determine the damages you are entitled to.
For medical malpractice, California law states that a lawsuit must be filed either within one year of the patient discovering the damage or within three years of the date that the incident occurred, whichever comes first.

The laws surrounding medical negligence in California must be thoroughly understood to ensure the protection of those affected by such occurrences. The state has adopted a tort system for California medical malpractice laws, meaning that any injured party can sue the responsible physician and any other relevant parties. To be successful, the patient must demonstrate that medical workers breached their duty and that this violation directly resulted in injury or harm to them. In general, an expert witness will be called in to determine whether or not these conditions have been satisfied. Furthermore, while pursuing a medical malpractice claim in California, litigants must comply to a rigorous statute of limitations.
Litigation resulting from medical negligence lawsuits can usually be lengthy, potentially taking many months or even years. The exact timeline of a medical malpractice lawsuit depends on various factors, including the case’s complexity, the court’s caseload and schedule, and the state it is in. In California, for example, specific statutes of limitation must be met before filing a claim. Survivors have a maximum of three years from the date of harm to seek legal redress for their losses.
