Medical injury is devastating for victims and their families. A single mistake by a doctor or other healthcare professional can cause catastrophic injuries or death. Even when an error isn’t fatal, the resulting physical and financial burdens can last a lifetime. While no amount of money can undo the harm that was done, fair compensation can provide stability and remove financial pressures to allow victims to focus on healing. With decades of experience, Sacramento Medical Malpractice Attorney Moseley Collins is well equipped to guide his clients through the process of securing adequate compensation.

It is vital to seek medical attention immediately after an accident. Getting checked out not only ensures that you are healthy, but it can also serve as valuable evidence down the road. Be sure to document everything that you remember, including dates and conversations with the medical staff involved. It is also important to preserve any defective products or foreign objects removed from your body following surgery. In addition, it is always a good idea to get a second medical evaluation by an independent expert as soon as possible.

Medical malpractice claims present a significant legal challenge because the standard of proof for liability is higher than most other civil cases. In order to prevail, a patient’s injury or loss must be caused by a negligent act or omission by the defendant healthcare provider, which must directly result in damages.
