Experienced California Medical Malpractice Lawyer Seeks Justice for Your Injuries

Skilled attorney helps victims in the San Francisco Bay Area recover full compensation

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.

Dedicated California attorney handles a range of malpractice claims

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:

  • Anesthesia errors — Patients who are not given sufficient or proper anesthesia may be in extreme pain throughout surgery but unable to communicate their distress. Conversely, patients receiving too much anesthesia can experience life-threatening complications. I press for the compensation you deserve in these cases.
  • Birth injuries — Cerebral palsy, fractures, infections and nerve damage are just some of the injuries your infant may suffer from a doctor’s improper care during delivery.
  • Emergency room errors — An ER doctor who does not recognize the seriousness of a patient’s condition may be to blame if a lack of care results in deterioration of the patient’s health.
  • Medication errors — Wrong medications or wrong dosages can result in adverse reactions and serious injury.
  • Misdiagnosis — A misdiagnosis can result in harmful, unnecessary treatment while depriving the patient of proper treatment.
  • Negligent nursing home care — Nursing home caretakers who abuse or neglect patients may be responsible for falls, dehydration or other serious health issues suffered by nursing home residents.
  • Surgical errors — Surgeons who operate on the wrong body part, inappropriately damage a nearby organ or blood vessel or leave surgical tools inside a patient can cause serious, permanent damage, or death.

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.

Determined attorney takes timely action on your claim

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.
