Williams & Javellana, LLP
Chico Medical Malpractice Lawyer
When we place ourselves in the care of a physician or a medical facility, we want to be comfortable with the fact that they will take care of us in the best way possible. Unfortunately, there are many times when accidents do occur and we may suffer for the long-term as a result of those accidents. If you have been injured while under the care or supervision of a medical provider, you may have a medical malpractice case. It is important that you contact Williams & Javellana, LLP as soon as possible to protect your legal rights.
Medical malpractice may take on several different forms in the state of California. In some cases, it is referred to as medical negligence which is perhaps a more descriptive term. It is an issue that involves a problem with the standards of care that were provided to a patient. What are some of the reasons why a medical malpractice lawsuit may be necessary?
In some cases, the issue with medical malpractice has to do with the failure to properly diagnose a medical condition or disease. In other cases, lack of appropriate treatment for the condition that you are experiencing may have led to the additional injuries. Finally, it is possible to bring forth a medical malpractice lawsuit if there was an unreasonable delay that occurred when treating a medical condition that has been diagnosed.
When you contact Williams & Javellana, LLP to discuss a medical malpractice issue that has occurred, extensive research will need to be completed to examine any and all responsible parties. In some cases, it may be your primary health provider but there may also be counselors, psychotherapists, psychologists and even other doctors that can be included in the lawsuit. It is important for the research to be done to uncover valuable information which will be relevant to your case.
In California, there are typically limits as to the amount of compensation that can be received as a result of a medical malpractice lawsuit. A $250,000 limit exists for any non-economic damages that occurred as a result of the malpractice. There may be additional funds that are possible, however, depending upon the economic damages that have taken place.
You can trust the services of Williams & Javellana, LLP to prepare you for the medical malpractice lawsuit. Any relevant information can be researched and expert witnesses, if necessary, will be secured. We will do what is necessary to ensure that you are able to be fairly compensated for the damages that took place because you were not cared for properly in a medical setting.
Gold standard for professionalism and ethics. Extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling complex cases. Attorney Javellana took painstaking hours building a civil case, (co-ownership/property rights) and then he presented overwhelming evidence at trial. Mr. Javellana was on point for 3 days at trial where he tactfully asserted a powerful presence in the courtroom and systematically picked apart the defendents and he was quick to respond to the dirty trickery of the defense attorney with undisputable legal arguments. As a result of Mr. Javellana's detailed and powerful representation, the opposing side had no chance. Mr. Javellana was extremely organized and detail oriented throughout. Mr. Javellana won the case across multiple points and most impressively he obtained a permanent injunction against the opposing party. Additionally, Mr. Javellana, represented me with two other cases where his professionalism and his relentless tactical drive continued with successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Javellana. J.M
