Medical malpractice are often highly technical and factually complex cases. Many attorneys are reluctant to take on medical malpractice cases for just these reasons. They can be time consuming, unpredictable, and generally costly for the attorneys representing people who have been injured. But, at Hinman and Peck, P.C., we take pride in being former medical malpractice defense attorneys. We are our clients’ “Former Defense Insiders.”
Both John Hinman and Christopher Peck, have extensive experience handling dozens of multimillion-dollar medical malpractice cases on behalf of doctors and major hospitals in Southern California. Our experience ranges from large to small cases in both state and federal court. Our collective experience with medical cases spans an incredible array of medical issues, which helps us predict the key issues in medical cases and allows us to work with the premier medical experts in the country as we build our cases.
At Hinman and Peck, P.C., we leave no stone unturned in maximizing your recovery. We work with life care planners, economists, rehabilitation specialists, and a variety of other experts depending upon the case to create a comprehensive picture of how our clients’ lives have been affected and will continue to be affected in the future.
It’s important that you not delay if you think you have been wrongfully injured at the hands of a doctor, nurse, or any type of hospital staff. The time limits for bringing your case in California are often times only 1 year. In some cases, the time limit is as short as just 6 months! Often times, patients or their families are still struggling to cope with the injury or death as the statute of limitations passes them by. Medical malpractice cases also require more investigation and time to determine if a lawsuit is appropriate. For these reasons, we recommend you contact the attorneys at Hinman and Peck, P.C. right away to avoid losing your right to sue.
