The California Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (“MICRA”) has made the pursuit of medical malpractice compensation difficult in this state. Because of MICRA, non-economic damages (i.e. pain and suffering) are capped and attorneys’ fees are limited among other things. Consequently it can be prohibitively expensive for some law firms to try a medical malpractice cases due to the high cost of hiring medical experts, and as a result injured patients are often at a disadvantage against hospitals and insurance companies.

We carefully evaluate the current and future needs of our clients and aggressively pursue maximum compensation in every case we take.
