Calaveras Hospital Settles Medical Negligence Case

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

Calaveras news reports that a California hospital has just agreed to settle a medical malpractice case. Catholic Healthcare West, doing business as Mark Twain St. Joseph's Hospital, has agreed to pay $3.5 million to a California woman - Dianna L. McGee - based on allegations of medical negligence.

Medical malpractice lawsuits are based on the premise that the actions of a health care provider - or inaction - led to a patient's injury. Medical malpractice actions may involve doctors, nurses, hospital staff or others involved in providing care. If you believe you or a love one has been harmed as the result of medical malpractice, it is important to consult with an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer immediately to determine your next steps and answer you personal injury questions.

Here, the woman's representative stated that this was "tragic medical negligence case" involving multiple missed opportunities by defendants to timely diagnose and surgically treat McGee's medical condition, causing her to lose all but six inches of her small bowel, leaving her totally dependent on a stomach tube for nutrition, which will severely restrict all of her activities for the rest of her life.

Representatives of the hospital noted, "Patient care is our highest priority, and we respect the privacy of our patients and legally cannot discuss the specifics of their care ... We are pleased to have reached a resolution in this matter."

Medical malpractice lawsuits are complex and require in-depth investigation by an attorney experienced in medical malpractice cases. For more information concerning medical malpractice actions or any other personal injury action, please contact a top Sacramento accident attorney at the Law Office of Frederick J.
