La Verne, California is an incorporated city of over 31,000 people, located in Los Angeles County. La Verne is home to one of the most recently ABA-accredited law schools in the country – the University Of La Verne College Of Law, which received provisional accreditation from the American Bar Association in 2006.
Like any city of its size, La Verne features a significant number of lawyers who are involved in a wide variety of practice areas. One particularly notable development to the legal community, and potential consumers, is the fact that plastic surgery patients in Los Angeles are increasingly traveling to the suburbs, including La Verne, to have procedures done, in search of lower prices and more experienced doctors with lighter patient loads, allowing for more individual attention.
Of course, as with any medical procedure, the possibility of the doctor committing negligence exists; this might give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit. Assuming that negligence is involved in a fixed (though admittedly very small) percentage of surgeries, an increase in the number of surgeries should result in an increase in instances of malpractice, which might increase the demand for medical malpractice lawyers in La Verne, California.
If you need to bring a medical malpractice suit, or any other lawsuit, in La Verne, you will likely have to do so in the Los Angeles County Superior Court. This is the California trial court of general jurisdiction for the county, and it’s where most civil and criminal cases begin. Federal cases, on the other hand, will likely be brought in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, in the western division, which covers all of Los Angeles County.
