Medical And Dental Malpractice
Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable
Every time you go to the doctor or dentist, you put your well-being in their hands. Many of us don’t think twice about this because we know that our doctors and dentists are trained professionals. However, medical professionals are not infallible. Sometimes they make mistakes. Unfortunately, some mistakes leave serious and lasting damage.
If your loved one was catastrophically injured because of medical or dental malpractice, the team of attorneys at Curd, Galindo & Smith, LLP, can help. We understand the difficulty of the situation your loved one is facing, and we are so sorry that it happened to them.
With more than 80 years of experience, we can help you seek the compensation your loved one deserves after a negligent act. We serve clients in Long Beach and the surrounding areas of California.
What Injuries We Handle
Dental and medical malpractice can lead to a host of injuries that are difficult to recover from. We have extensive experience seeking compensation for victims of the most debilitating and life-changing effects of negligence by a medical professional. Some types of cases we handle include:
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose that led to delayed treatment of a serious condition
- Negligence during child birth that left the child with a lasting and irreversible condition
- Surgical errors that led to irreparable damage
- Medication errors that resulted in serious injury or death to the patient
- Tooth extraction errors that lead to serious infection and sometimes death
An Important Note About Medical Malpractice Claims
In California, medical malpractice victims cannot receive more than $250,000 in noneconomic damages through a lawsuit. While this cap is confined to noneconomic damages like pain and suffering and does not affect economic damages like medical bills and lost wages, it is important to know before you choose to pursue a medical malpractice claim.
