Physicians and other healthcare providers owe their patients a duty to provide a professional standard of care, demonstrating the same level of skill that fellow practitioners would normally exercise. When that duty of care is breached and you are injured as a result, you may be able to seek damages through a medical malpractice claim. As an attorney at the Law Offices of Roger S. Reynolds, I represent clients in medical malpractice actions in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. Victims of medical negligence may recover compensation for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress and lost income. I advocate for fair and full awards that account for the harm you have suffered, and I will protect your rights when healthcare professionals try to pressure you to accept less than you deserve.
Medical malpractice can take the form of many types of preventable mistakes, wrongful actions or omissions or exercises in poor judgment. Valid bases for a medical malpractice case may include:
To prevail on a medical malpractice claim, an injured plaintiff must usually retain expert medical testimony to establish the standard of care in the community, that the care was negligent and the negligence caused harm. At the Law Offices of Roger S. Reynolds, I consult with licensed medical professionals and retain prominent medical experts to support your case and present compelling evidence of malpractice to jurors.
It is important to consult an attorney as soon as you believe that malpractice may have occurred. California law sets strict statutory deadlines for filing medical malpractice claims. If a deadline passes before a claim is made, you may be unable to seek remedy from the responsible parties. In addition, investigating your malpractice claim immediately after the injury occurs preserves crucial evidence and valuable testimony. When you retain the services of the Law Offices of Roger S. Reynolds, I will get to work retaining an expert in the appropriate medical field to review your medical records and conduct an investigation to establish a strong case.
If you are injured by a medical professional, you have a right to seek damages for negligent care. I hold healthcare providers accountable for the harm they cause patients.
