For many years, Attorney, Mark Eisenberg was an insurance defense attorney handling the defense of physicians and dentists sued for malpractice.

Professional negligence claims against a health care provider are governed by the provisions of California's Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act ("MICRA"). It is therefore so important that your claim against your medical provider be handled by someone experienced in the field. At EISENBERG LAW FIRM, we are specialists in the handling of such claims and can advise and assist you in the event you are a victim of medical negligence.
Sometimes, even a well intentioned medical professional makes a mistake or fails to use due care, which results in serious injury or death to their patient. Victims of medical malpractice who are seriously injured, permanently disabled or killed have a legal right to financial compensation (damages) from those responsible. EISENBERG LAW FIRM can help medical malpractice victims achieve the compensation they are entitled to.
A medical error occurs when a healthcare provider fails to follow accepted medical practices for a given medical specialty or procedure.
Medical errors are the eighth leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the National Academy of Science Institute of Medicine. Every year up to 98,000 hospital patients die from preventable medical errors, far exceeding the number of deaths from traffic accidents or breast cancer.
Hospitals aren't the only source of medical errors. Clinics, doctors' offices, pharmacies, and nursing homes all represent a potential point of fatal error.
Professionals in the medical field are responsible for a number of lives and it is obligatory for him/her to give an equal amount of attention and care to each one of his/her patients. It is the morally and ethically correct thing to do. However, there are times in this field when a professional shows irresponsibility and recklessness in their treatment of patients and ends up injuring them in the process.
