Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable

Every time you go to the doctor or dentist, you put your well-being in their hands. Many of us don't think twice about this because we know that our doctors and dentists are trained professionals. However, medical professionals are not infallible. Sometimes they make mistakes. Unfortunately, some mistakes leave serious and lasting damage.

If your loved one was catastrophically injured because of medical or dental malpractice, the team of attorneys at Curd, Galindo & Smith, LLP, can help. We understand the difficulty of the situation your loved one is facing.

With more than 80-combined years of experience, our attorneys can help you seek the compensation your loved one deserves after a negligent act. We serve clients in Long Beach and the surrounding areas of California.

What Injuries We Handle

Dental and medical malpractice can lead to a host of injuries that are difficult to recover from. We have extensive experience seeking compensation for victims of the most debilitating and life-changing effects of negligence by a medical professional. We have years of experience litigating malpractice cases, and we bring a team of experts to make sure that you get your day in court, or we settle your matter with both your input and your agreement. Some types of cases we handle include:

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to correctly diagnose and that leads to delayed treatment or a more serious condition
  • Negligence during childbirth that causes serious trauma to the mother or child
  • Surgical errors that cause chronic pain, suffering and/or additional surgeries
  • Errors in prescribing or filling prescription medications that result in serious injury or death
  • Dental malpractice that leads to serious injury or death

An Important Note About Medical Malpractice Claims

In California, medical malpractice victims cannot receive more than $250,000 in noneconomic damages through a lawsuit. While this cap is confined to noneconomic damages like pain and suffering, it does not affect economic damages like medical bills and lost wages. We believe it's important for you to know before you consider having an attorney file your malpractice case.
