Our Attorneys Help Protect Your Rights
Many people covered by Kaiser aren’t aware of the restrictive measures incorporated into Kaiser’s group health insurance policy — measures that make it extremely difficult for members or their families to sue for medical malpractice.
Kaiser members who have been injured by the carelessness of Kaiser doctors and staff are not allowed to have a jury trial by filing a lawsuit in court. Instead, injured members are limited to arbitration, a procedure that saves Kaiser the expense and uncertainty of having cases decided by a jury in a court of law. Kaiser knows that people who have represented themselves in these arbitrations will lose 75% of the time. That is why it is critical for victims of Kaiser medical malpractice to be represented in arbitration by attorneys who have a history of successfully representing Kaiser members in these arbitration proceedings.
Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff represents Kaiser Permanente members suffering from a wide range of medical malpractice injuries, including:
- KCR recovered $1.1 million in a chiropractic malpractice case in which a patient's chiropractor failed to diagnose Cauda Equina Syndrome. The failure to diagnose resulted in the patient's permanent paralysis. The compensation will pay for the patient’s long term medical treatment and attendant care needs for the rest of his life.
- In a confidential settlement, KCR achieved an $850,000 recovery on behalf of woman and her family in a medical malpractice case arising from the failure of the woman’s doctors to diagnose her breast cancer. The settlement also addresses a future wrongful death claim for the terminally ill woman’s husband and 3 grown children.
