Orange County Medical Malpractice Attorneys
The attorneys at Katje Law Group have successfully handled a variety of cases relating to negligent acts by physicians, surgeons, nurses, psychiatrists, pharmacists, dentists, and more. These medical professionals are all required to provide a Standard of Care. Standard of Care is the degree of attentiveness, caution and prudence that a reasonable professional in the same circumstances would exercise. Failure to meet that standard is negligence, and the professional who fails to meet the standard is liable for any damages caused by such negligence.
