Medical Malpractice Attorney in Sacramento
Have you been injured due to medical malpractice in Sacramento, California? If so, state laws allow you to file a civil claim or lawsuit against the liable party. If you win, you may be entitled to damages such as medical expenses, lost wages and earning potential, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, or even funeral and burial expenses, where applicable.
However, to win such a case, you must establish whether you have legal grounds in the first place. That’s where a medical malpractice specialist from Morgan and Morgan comes in.
Our law firm has handled many malpractice cases for more than three decades and helped victims just like you recover favorable results. But don’t take our word for it; we have the results to show, most notably a $38 million award for a birth injury victim.

How Can a Sacramento Medical Malpractice Lawyer Help?
A medical malpractice lawyer from Morgan and Morgan can help by:
- evaluating your case to determine whether you may have legal grounds to take action;
- gathering evidence to support the case;
- consulting medical experts;
- creating a legal strategy to pursue the claim;
- filling out important paperwork and keeping up with strict deadlines, all on your behalf;
- and representing you in court if necessary.
What Are Some Examples of Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice cases may involve misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication mistakes, birth injuries, and failure to obtain informed consent. All of these instances illustrate deviations from the standard of care expected from a healthcare provider or facility.
Can I File a Claim if the Healthcare Provider Makes a Genuine Mistake?
Yes, you can still file a claim even if there was a genuine mistake by the healthcare provider, facility, or any other party you believe (and can prove) is responsible. That’s because medical malpractice involves a deviation from the standard of care, regardless of intent.
I Am Being Blamed for the Incident. Do I Have a Case?
Blame doesn't automatically negate your case. If there's evidence of medical negligence contributing to the incident, you may still have a valid claim. That’s why we always advise the injured to contact us even if they feel they’re partly liable or the other party tries to make them believe so.
The Other Party Wants To Settle. Do I Still Need a Lawyer?
Yes, you should still hire a lawyer even if a settlement is imminent. A skilled Sacramento medical malpractice lawyer will always have your best interests at heart and ensure you receive fair compensation.
What’s a Fair Compensation for Medical Malpractice?
Compensation for medical malpractice varies on a case-by-case basis, so there’s no fixed amount to expect if you win. That said, reasonable compensation should include all damages you may be entitled to, which is why you need an attorney to help assess what's appropriate based on the unique circumstances of your case.
