Orange County Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical malpractice feels like an unthinkable betrayal. A doctor—someone who swore an oath to “do no harm”—made a mistake that injured you. Medical malpractice can happen on the operating table, in an exam room, or even at the pharmacy when you pick up medicine your doctor never should have prescribed. Whatever the circumstances, now you face pain, stress, and expense you didn’t plan for and don’t deserve.
When doctors and their staffs make harmful mistakes, it can be critical for victims to connect with a lawyer who understands the complexities of building a case for compensation from medical practices and their insurers. At Aitken* Aitken * Cohn, our Orange County medical malpractice attorneys fight for the rights of Californians injured by medical providers.

At Aitken* Aitken * Cohn, we have a track record of success in recovering significant settlements and judgments for our clients in medical malpractice cases. Here are a few examples:
- A jury awarded our client, a promising young student, nearly $15,000,000 after an anesthesiologist failed to monitor his oxygen and ventilation levels during a routine outpatient surgery to fix his broken ankle. Our client went into cardiac arrest during the procedure and suffered a permanent brain injury that left him blind and with memory and sensory deficits. Lawyers for the defendant anesthesiologist tried to argue numerous alternative explanations for our client’s injury, but the team at Aitken* Aitken * Cohn prevailed in demonstrating the defendant’s fault.
- We recovered a $650,000 wrongful death settlement on behalf of the family of a high school principal whose surgeon nicked his bowel during surgery, which led to an infection that wasn’t discovered until it was too late to save the patient’s life.
- We achieved a $750,000 settlement on behalf of a client whose doctor failed for two years to diagnose breast cancer, despite warning signs. The doctor’s failure to deliver the standard of care to our client allowed the cancer to progress from Stage I to Stage III and significantly complicated her recovery process.
- We recovered a $450,000 wrongful death settlement on behalf of the family of a woman—a mother of six—who died after giving birth when doctors failed to spot her need for a blood transfusion in time, despite excessive bleeding.
