Medical Malpractice

Berkeley attorney helps victims recover compensation
A special relationship exists between physicians and their patients. Physicians owe their patients a duty to provide a certain standard of care, using at least the level of skill, care and diligence that is generally exercised by fellow practitioners in the same specialty. It is considered medical malpractice when the care provided is determined to be below the accepted standard of care, and causes serious injury to a patient. Medical malpractice victims may recover compensation for their injuries, including for past and future medical expenses, reduced income and earning capacity, and other financial losses, as well as for pain, suffering and emotional distress.

Experienced medical malpractice attorney
Susie Injijian at the Injijian Law Office, APC has successfully represented medical malpractice clients in Berkeley and throughout California for more than 30 years, routinely obtaining generous settlements in cases involving birth injuries, orthopedic surgeries, neurological surgeries, anesthesia, radiation therapy, diagnosis of serious health conditions, emergency medicine, emergency medical services, hospital nursing care, nursing home care, cosmetic surgeries, prescription drug mistakes, psychiatric care and eye surgeries.

To prove medical malpractice, the victim’s attorney must present strong and credible expert medical testimony to establish that the medical care was negligent and that this negligence legally caused the patient’s injuries. I regularly consult with a number of practicing medical professionals before and after I agree to represent a client in a medical malpractice case.  I retain prominent medical experts who have a gift for clearly explaining medical mistakes to jurors.

Timely action is vital
California law sets statutory deadlines for filing medical malpractice claims. Also, investigating your malpractice claim immediately after the injury occurs preserves crucial evidence and valuable testimony. To ensure timely investigation and filing of your claim, I can schedule appointments on weekends or evenings, and I can make hospital and home visits.
