California Birth Injury Attorney

Kaiser Medical Malpractice Arbitration

State laws allow a health care provider to establish a system in which any disputes regarding negligence or medical malpractice must be decided by the legal procedure of arbitration, instead of through our court system. The California Code of Civil Procedures states, "Both parties to this contract, by entering into it, are giving up their constitutional right to have any such dispute decided in a court of law before a jury, and instead are accepting the use of arbitration."

Arbitration is a way of resolving cases without the use of the court system. If a birth injury was caused by the negligence of a Kaiser Permanente health care provider, your legal recourse is through arbitration, not our courts. Arbitration is bound by formal legal rules, can become quite complex and one of the largest insurance companies in the state may try to disprove or lessen the value of your case. It is vital that action be taken quickly as submissions which are attempted too late may not even be heard. At Bostwick & Peterson LLP, we do not want you to have to fight this battle by yourself. Use of an experienced California birth injury lawyer from our firm can greatly increase the likelihood of success when going into an arbitration setting.
