Medical Malpractice & Serious Injury

In-Depth Knowledge

Ken Sigelman is not only a medical malpractice and personal injury lawyer in California, but is also a licensed physician and surgeon. His medical background helps him at every phase of a medical malpractice case, including:

  • Recognizing the important medical issues in the case;
  • Reviewing and understanding the pertinent medical records;
  • Identifying the medical specialties in which expert witnesses will be needed, and effectively securing the involvement of those experts;
  • Breaking through the medically dishonest, sham explanations sometimes offered by defendant doctors or expert witnesses hired by the doctor’s insurance company;
  • Explaining the medical issues in clear, easily understandable terms to the jury at trial.

Medical Malpractice & Serious Injury

In-Depth Experience

San Diego medical malpractice and personal injury lawyer Ken Sigelman has been handling medical malpractice cases for more than 17 years. He has personally litigated many cases to successful conclusion through jury trial, arbitration, or settlement, including numerous recoveries of more than $1 million.

Medical malpractice cases are often very difficult for many medical malpractice lawyers to win on behalf of the patient and family. Only with careful, skillful preparation of the entire case by the personal injury medical malpractice lawyer, is there any likelihood of a favorable result. Unless the medical malpractice lawyer has a track record that demonstrates the willingness to take a case all the way through trial, and the ability to win at trial, insurance companies will rarely make reasonable offers to settle out of court. Ken Sigelman’s philosophy is that the only way to persuade the insurance companies to treat victims of personal injury and their families fairly is to always prepare each personal injury or medical malpractice case vigorously, with the assumption that every case could go to trial.
