While medical malpractice law can be tricky, there is a simple test to know if you’re eligible to file a lawsuit with a medical malpractice attorney.
It’s called the 4 D’s. If you can prove all 4, then you may have a legitimate case.
In California, the maximum you can receive is $250,000 for “pain and suffering”. However, you can also be entitled to economic losses and attorney’s fees.
Bear Republic Law and our medical malpractice attorneys have helped many victims of medical malpractice during their careers. One client, for example, won $600k in a dental malpractice suit. Another client won $1 million in a medical malpractice suit.
Our medical malpractice attorneys will work hard for you but note that these are just examples, and not what you should necessarily expect.
In the State of California, you have up to three years to act on a medical malpractice suit against a negligent doctor. This is known as the “statute of limitations” Or, you have up to one year after an injury was discovered. Our medical malpractice attorneys can help you, but you must act quickly.
This might seem like more than enough time for you, but it’s not. Permit me to explain why. Acting on a medical malpractice lawsuit can be difficult if it’s been a while since your injury.
If the doctor is truly negligent, they might be let go. Or they’ll move somewhere else. Life can go by in a blur, and you’ll be out of time. And, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many states are moving towards making doctors immune to lawsuits. With the help of our medical malpractice attorneys, we can help get you the results you deserve.
Hospital bills in the United States, even with insurance, can be unaffordable. Paying a lawyer on top of all of that can seem out of reach, especially if you’ve been caused financial damage.
If this is a concern for you, there is some good news. Our malpractice attorneys work on what is called a “contingency basis”. This means that rather than paying him upfront, he’ll get paid if you receive a settlement.
