A person injured by medical malpractice may be eligible for compensatory and punitive damages in limited cases. If you feel you were you a victim of medical malpractice in California you should contact a professional Los Angeles medical malpractice attorney immediately.

Medical malpractice can occur through two broad areas of conduct:

  • Carelessness or mistakes made during the course of a procedure or treatment resulting in injury: An example would be if a surgeon performs a procedure for a hernia and unknowingly cuts the patient's intestines, causing the abdominal cavity to be infected due to contamination.
  • A provider fails to diagnose a condition which results in an injury: An example could be a provider who fails to diagnose the fact a patient has cancer by not following the standard for care of diagnosis.

Overprescribing of Medication

Certain short-term medications have become more frequently prescribed to people for long periods of time. These types of medications are supposed to be administered on a short term basis and be accompanied with a treatment plan to treat the underlying issues over the long term. However, doctors are commonly prescribing these medications without a treatment plan, usually to the detriment of their patients who become dependent on these dangerous drugs.

The most frequently misused and overprescribed medications are those that are intended to treat acute anxiety and pain. These medications are not intended to treat to the underlying problems that cause these acute bouts of anxiety and pain. Unfortunately, doctors frequently prescribe these medications without a treatment plan to treat the root issue, causing their patients to become dependent on the drugs themselves while the original cause of the anxiety or pain may be left unaddressed.
