Kaiser Permanente Brain Injury Malpractice Lawyers

The human brain is a delicate organ and susceptible to injury in a variety of ways. Surgical or medical malpractice can result in traumatic brain injury. Improperly performed surgical procedures can result in brain injury or brain damage. Deprivation of oxygen during non-neurosurgical medical procedures can permanently impair brain function.

Get Help With A Brain Injury Resulting From Malpractice

If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury at a Kaiser Permanente facility or as a result of negligence, recklessness or malpractice by a Kaiser health care provider, you need an experienced Kaiser malpractice attorney to help you recover the compensation you deserve. At the law office of Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger, in San Francisco, California, we have over 20 years experience representing Kaiser members in medical malpractice proceedings.

Since 1978, we have represented thousands of Kaiser members with brain injury and other medical malpractice claims against Kaiser Permanente. We understand the Kaiser Arbitration system and know how to maximize your chances for successfully recovering compensation for your injury.

As a Kaiser Permanente member, your rights to file medical malpractice claims against Kaiser are limited. Since 1978, all Kaiser Permanente group policies have included a provision mandating use of a private arbitration procedure for all medical claims against Kaiser Permanente. These complex proceedings often result in the denial of medical claims, regardless of the negligence, carelessness or malpractice of the health care provider.

EXAMPLE OF OUR SUCCESS

Negligent Care Results in $2 Million Dollar Arbitration Award

In one of the largest arbitration awards ever returned against Kaiser, our firm obtained a binding award in excess of $2,000,000 on behalf of a 52-year-old woman who suffered a respiratory arrest and precipitous drop in her blood pressure two days after undergoing abdominal surgery at Kaiser Walnut Creek. The arrest occurred shortly after an epidural catheter, which had been used for post-operative pain control, was replaced. Paul proved that the procedure resulted in a “high spinal.” High spinal anesthesia is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of epidural anesthesia. Typically, the first signs of a high spinal block are a drop in blood pressure, a slowing of the heart rate, and difficulty in breathing.
