A doctor's medical error can be costly. When you are injured you are faced with pain and suffering and monetary losses from medical bills and lost wages. When a doctor has failed to do what a reasonable and prudent doctor would have done in similar circumstances, that failure may be cause for a medical malpractice claim. Contact us to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Medical malpractice claims can be difficult to prove. Many times, doctors are not very cooperative in testifying against their peers, implications of a mistake can take years to manifest, statutes of limitation can run out quickly, and the damage done by the mistake can be difficult to establish. Because of this, it is important to have your case evaluated by an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to assess its strengths and weaknesses.

In addition, many California lawyers are unwilling to handle medical malpractice cases because of MICRA (Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act), a law which substantially limits the damages that can be recovered in most medical malpractice lawsuits.

At the Law Offices of McTernan, Stender & Weingus, we have successfully found ways to significantly limit the effect of MICRA in a number of medical malpractice cases and will seek ways to maximize compensation in your case.
