Over the last several years, many Los Angeles personal injury law firms have had to decide on specific areas of practice. With Medical Malpractice limits being firmly in place, some of the best legal professionals in southern California are not willing to take on these cases. It costs way too much money to investigate and bring this particular cases to trial with such a smaller payout.
While Los Angeles injury lawyers are more than willing to take on car accident cases and premises liability cases they do not want to go down the road of a medical malpractice case. This is very unfortunate as there are a number of victims that need the best legal representation possible. It will be interesting to see if law firms adjust if the maximum compensation is moved higher.
For the time being, it looks as if those that have been a victim of medical malpractice will not be able to recover a significant amount of money. Over time, we can only hope this will change. Although money isn’t everything, it greatly helps when it comes to medical bills, pain and suffering and loss of income. Those that have suffered from medical malpractice will likely be unable to perform a number of basic job duties that would allow them to make more money moving forward.
