Medical Malpractice Legal Help for Northern California Kaiser Permanente Members
Northern California patients who suffer from negligently caused surgical injuries, death, brain injury, disability, paralysis or other serious injury caused by the negligence of a Kaiser Permanente medical provider should seek the assistance of an experienced Kaiser Permanente medical malpractice attorney for help obtaining compensation for their injuries and losses. Kaiser Permanente has more than eight million members nationwide, with many of these members in Northern California. What many Kaiser Permanente HMO members do not realize is that their legal remedies are limited when an injury or death results from the negligence or carelessness of a Kaiser medical provider.
The medical injury specialists at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger have successfully represented Kaiser Permanente HMO members in Northern California and nationwide in claims involving medical malpractice, recovering more than $100 million for Kaiser Permanente medical malpractice victims since 1978.
We have successfully recovered compensation for Northern California Kaiser Permanente HMO members in medical claims involving:
- Cancer misdiagnosis
- Brain injuries
- Birth injuries
- Heart attack and heart disease
- Wrongful death
These injuries and fatalities have resulted from the negligence, carelessness or malpractice of a Kaiser Permanente medical professional, including nursing negligence, failure to diagnose a medical condition, obstetric negligence, emergency room errors, surgical negligence, anesthesia overdose and other medical negligence.
Kaiser Permanente group health insurance policies contain strict provisions that prohibit filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in court. Rather, all claims must proceed through private arbitration proceedings. All medical malpractice claims brought by Northern California Kaiser Permanente HMO members are handled by the Office of Independent Administrator (OIA). The strict guidelines and complex procedures make it challenging for Kaiser Permanente members to succeed in obtaining rightful compensation without the assistance of an experienced lawyer. In fact, without a lawyer, Kaiser Permanente HMO members lose 75 percent of the time and do not recover the compensation their family needs.
