Southern California Kaiser Permanente Medical Malpractice Claims
Most Southern California Kaiser Permanente HMO members are unaware of the limited legal remedies available if they are injured through the negligence, carelessness or malpractice of a medical provider. Kaiser Permanente HMO has included provisions in all of its group health insurance policies requiring any medical malpractice claim or other negligence claim to proceed through mandatory private arbitration rather than the filing of a medical malpractice lawsuit in court.
Statistics show that Kaiser Permanente members who proceed without the assistance of a lawyer lose at arbitration 75 percent of the time. Southern California victims of medical malpractice should consult an experienced Kaiser Permanente medical malpractice attorney to make sure their claim for compensation is handled with professionalism, skill and diligence so they have the strongest chance for success.
