A Law Firm Prepared to Get Results in Medical Malpractice Cases

In 1975, under the threat of a doctors' strike, the California legislature passed the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA). The law limits the general damages in a medical malpractice lawsuit to $250,000. Economic damages do not have a cap.

The MICRA law imposes restrictions on medical malpractice claims that do not apply in standard personal injury cases. It is important to retain a law firm that is prepared to offer you:

  • An honest assessment: Before we accept a case, we will do a thorough case evaluation including a review of medical records and expert opinions. We will always let you know what you can expect before taking any action on your claim.
  • A record of success: Even though California's current laws favor doctors and hospitals over injured patients, our medical malpractice attorneys have helped many clients obtain fair compensation in complex cases.
  • Professional expertise: With a nurse paralegal on staff, a network of medical and life planning experts, and attorneys who understand medical science and human biology, our legal team thoroughly documents medical and economic injuries.
  • Compassion and understanding: Our attorneys and our staff put ourselves in our clients' shoes so that we can fully appreciate the losses they and their families have endured. We are then prepared to present an effective, compelling case to a jury.

Medical malpractice lawsuits not only obtain money damages for victims; they also exert pressure on those responsible to change their ways — thereby preventing the same thing from happening to others in the future. For more information check out our medical malpractice website.
