San Diego Kaiser Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Kaiser Permanente is the largest health insurance provider in California. They have a tremendous amount of control over the state’s health care industry and they set their own rules when it comes to medical malpractice claims. If you are insured by Kaiser, you want a firm on your side that will not back down from them.
At Chihak & Martel, our San Diego Kaiser medical malpractice attorneys have the experience and resources to handle the most complex claims. Conducting a thorough investigation into your case, we will step into negotiations ready to fight for you.
We Are Trial Lawyers, Not Settlement Lawyers
Contact Chihak & Martel Today
Unlike other California insurance companies, when you sign an insurance policy with Kaiser Permanente, you must waive your right to sue the doctors. Instead, they handle all medical malpractice claims through arbitration.
While you still have the right to file a claim and proceed to arbitration, do not think for a moment that the playing field is equal. Just because you cannot take your case to court does not mean you have to accept their settlement options. We will fight for you in arbitration and make sure the independent arbitrator understands the full impact of your claim:
- Cancer misdiagnosis
- Anesthesia errors
- Medical treatment errors
- Surgical errors
- Kaiser hospital emergency room errors
With decades of experience protecting personal injury victims throughout California, we have achieved significant settlements and arbitration awards for clients in medical malpractice cases against Kaiser Permanente. Our success has not gone unnoticed, as attorney Chihak has been recognized by Super Lawyers, San Diego Magazine and other prominent legal publications.
A Kaiser Permanente HMO may protect you when you are healthy, but if you have been the victim of medical malpractice, it will leave you with few options. From our offices in San Diego, we can help you take a stand and protect your rights. Call or contact us online today to schedule an initial consultation with no obligation.
We offer contingency fees for all medical malpractice claims, even those against Kaiser, so you do not have to worry about legal fees until we win your case.
