Bostwick & Peterson, LLP is a law firm that is passionate about the rights of patients. Our goal is to pursue maximum financial compensation for those who have suffered at the hands of a negligent or careless medical practitioner. Here, you will find news and updates about medical malpractice cases as well as helpful information for victims and their families. We have been handling medical malpractice cases for over 60 years as a firm, and this legal blog is just one more way we wish to help victims.

Our firm is proud of the fact that we have recovered over $500 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients. This high recovery total represents the positive change we have been able to make in the lives of our clients. While nothing can fully take away the trauma of a medical mistake, our goal is to pursue the funds necessary to help with the victim's overall quality of life. Compensation we seek goes toward necessary surgical treatments, continued rehabilitation, medication and even things like loss of future earning capacity and emotional pain and suffering.

Medical malpractice litigation is often extremely complex. You need an attorney who not only understands the legal implications of malpractice, but the medical implications. Your attorney should have an intimate understanding of commonly accepted medical procedures, diagnostic procedures, cancer screening guidelines, etc. Without a firm grasp of medical standards, you attorney will not be able to detect when a physician fails to meet those standards.

Bostwick & Peterson, LLP places heavy emphasis on the area of birth injuries. This is a tragic field of practice. Negligent physicians and obstetricians can injure a child at birth to the point that the child will never know what living an injury-free life is like. Our firm believes that these children and their families require compensation not only for physical injuries, but for the emotional toll that a birth injury can have on a family.

Attorney James Bostwick has been practicing in this area for more than 35 years and he is also one of the few lawyers in the state of California to be certified as a specialist in the field of medical malpractice (American Board of Professional Liability certified). Erik Peterson, among other honors, has been included in the list of Super Lawyers® and rated AV Preeminent™ on Martindale-Hubbell®. The attorneys at our law firm are truly top-tier, and have the experience necessary to handle even the most intricate medical malpractice cases.
