When you go to a doctor or other healthcare professional, you trust them to treat you competently, with proper care and full disclosure of your medical issues and treatment. However, sometimes medical providers act negligently and cause you harm. If you believe that you have been the victim of medical malpractice, you need to hire a knowledgeable and skilled attorney to represent you in your claim. At the Law Offices of Tateishi & Tanaka, our attorneys have more than 40 years of experience in medical malpractice litigation and have obtained full compensation for our clients.
Medical malpractice occurs when your healthcare provider commits a mistake that constitutes medical negligence. In other words, your doctor’s actions violate the standard of care required by their medical specialty.
In our experience, medical negligence can consist of:
It is important to remember that when a doctor makes a mistake, or you are unhappy with the treatment, it does not necessarily mean that malpractice has occurred. In order to obtain compensation for medical malpractice, you must be able to prove that your healthcare provider acted negligently and that their incompetence is what caused you harm.
Such actions can lead to serious injury or wrongful death. If you or a loved one has suffered from the negligent acts of a medical professional, our personal injury attorneys can help you win your case.
Not only doctors who make errors in your treatment can be sued. Other healthcare providers and companies can be liable:
Because of Hawaii’s statute of limitations, it is imperative that you file your claim within two years of when you discovered, or should have discovered the medical error. Even if your injury is not noticeable immediately, you cannot file your claim more than six years after the date of the error. We can ensure that you file your claim in a timely manner, identify all the wrongful participants and obtain the maximum amount of compensation.
