Allegedly undiagnosed fistula leads to wrongful death lawsuit

For many residents of California and across the nation, the thought of losing a loved one may be just as painful and frightening as the possibility of their own death. People everywhere rely on health care providers to keep family members and relatives as safe and healthy as possible.

Serious injuries for pair involved in California accident

Sadly, at least one more person has been killed on California roadways. A man and his female passenger were both hurt when their motorcycle crashed into the back of a car in Carlsbad.

Perhaps greater awareness will improve the medical malpractice rates of physicians in California and beyond.
