When we go to the doctor, we trust that they will provide a certain standard of care. We trust that they will take the time to properly diagnose us, offer treatment options, and properly perform such treatment so we have the best opportunity for a swift recovery. We also trust that they will inform us of the risks and benefits of certain procedures so we can be involved and make the right choices about our care. But what happens when they violate our trust?
When health care professionals fail to provide standard care, they can cause significant harm to unsuspecting patients. At Jackson & Wilson, we believe in holding doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals accountable for their misconduct. Our Orange County medical malpractice attorneys have over six decades of combined experience to apply to these complex cases, and we have the resources to seek justice even when faced with large medical malpractice insurance corporations and their teams of attorneys. We are here to fight for patients’ rights.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle
The key part of any medical malpractice case will be establishing that the doctor or health care professional in question violated the “standard of care” in that situation. That essentially means that the doctor did something or failed to do something, and this resulted in a level of treatment below currently accepted standards – based on the tools at hand.
Our Orange County medical malpractice lawyers understand what to look for in identifying substandard care. We handle cases involving:
- Birth injuries
- Surgical malpractice
- Emergency room errors
- Anesthesia malpractice
- Nursing errors and malpractice
- Medication mistakes
- Failures to get informed consent
- Wrongful death
- Failures to diagnose cancer
- Misdiagnoses of illnesses or injuries
- Delayed diagnoses of life-threatening medical conditions
Maximizing Compensation for Your Medical Malpractice Claim
Different lawyers use different techniques to help maximize the total monetary payout of their clients’ medical malpractice cases. We believe convincing arbitrators, mediators, juries, and even opposing counsel is as much an art as anything else. It’s about using the law, facts, and people skills to make a point and to justify the damages sought.
Persuading medical malpractice insurance companies and claims adjusters is challenging and the final amount obtained for clients is usually related to “how” a lawyer argues the facts and presents the evidence. We believe that reputation and skill play big factors in the final settlement or verdict numbers, and this works in our favor in many cases. Opposing counsel knows us and knows what we will do for our clients.
