Doctors, medical specialists, nurses, hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare providers have a duty to provide their patients with care that measures up to the standard generally accepted in the medical community. The standard of care is based on the way other members of the profession would normally act under similar circumstances. If a medical professional fails to meet the reasonable standard of care, that person is considered negligent and liable for malpractice. California malpractice statutes and case law place a cap of $250,000 on the amount of compensation you can recover for pain, suffering, inconvenience, physical impairment, disfigurement and other non-economic injuries resulting from medical negligence.
