California Medical Malpractice

Medical mistakes and infections are responsible for about 200,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, according to a 2009 investigation* by the Hearst media corporation.

Without the threat of serious consequences, physicians, hospitals and the insurance companies that indemnify them are not held accountable for careless or negligent behavior. That is why it is so important that people who are injured as a result of medical malpractice fight for justice and the compensation they deserve.

Diane Matthews, A Nurse Attorney Who Is Here To Help with Your Health Care Litigation Needs

If you were injured or your loved one died as a result of medical negligence, we are here to help you.

Matthews Law Group of Sacramento, California, helps clients throughout Northern California obtain the justice and compensation they deserve, including money to cover medical bills, lost wages and future lifecare needs. In certain cases, we can pursue claims for fraud, punitive damages, and violation of health care privacy laws, particularly those pertaining to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). We also represent clients in the Bay Area — including Yolo County, Redding, San Francisco and Oakland. Referrals from other attorneys who do not practice medical malpractice are also welcome.

We hold negligent health care providers accountable to prevent serious injuries from happening to others. We handle a broad array of cases, including:

  • Surgical errors, such as removal of or damage to healthy organs
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose illnesses, infection, internal bleeding, hemorrhage, heart attack, stroke or respiratory failure
  • Delayed diagnosis resulting in serious pain or permanent damage
  • Medication, prescription or pharmacy errors
  • Nursing errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy or brachial plexus
  • Labor or delivery injuries to mother or child
  • Wrongful death resulting from medical negligence
  • Ambulance or emergency room malpractice
  • Kaiser arbitration
  • Defective or improperly used medical equipment and facilities
  • Elder law and elder abuse
  • Privacy issues/HIPAA concerns
  • Emotional damages associated with any of the above

Our founding attorney, Diane Matthews, is a registered nurse and a seasoned medical malpractice attorney. She understands how medical injuries happen, how they can be prevented, and their impact on the lives of her clients.
