Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Fighting for Victims of Medical Negligence & Hospital Malpractice
Medical malpractice happens when a medical provider's negligence hurts a patient. Birth injuries, surgical errors, wrong prescriptions, and even slips and falls in the hospital are all a result of a medical provider's lack of vigilance and care.
What's worse is that the majority of medical errors are never reported to the patients.
Instead, doctors and nurses continue their treatment as though nothing has occurred. As long as you're "fine," they don't see the need to report their error. However, that means when patients suffer from medical malpractice, they're never aware of it. To them, it appears as though their body has betrayed them—and they place their trust in the people who hurt them. No matter what your provider says, if you were left off worse in a doctor's care or after a hospital visit, it may have been due to medical negligence. Our Pennsylvania medical malpractice attorneys have won millions of dollars in claims against hospitals, doctors, nurses, and other medical providers.
The Likelihood That You Were Injured by a Doctor or Nurse
According to a report from the Center for Justice and Democracy, between 25,000 and 120,000 people die from medical negligence every year. That number still doesn't account for the hundreds of thousands of people who are non-fatally injured every year by medical malpractice. Experts believe that as many as 1 in 100 hospital patients become victims of malpractice. These are only the injuries that are recorded; the numbers suggest that for every reported instance of medical negligence, there are four errors that go unreported.
If you left a hospital or doctor's office in poorer health than when you arrived, evidence suggests that you were not only a potential victim of medical malpractice, but your doctor might have concealed his or her mistake from you. Sadly, it is virtually impossible for patients to prove that their doctors acted negligently; state medical boards protect a doctor's right to exercise discretion, even when it ends poorly. The only way patients can hold negligent doctors accountable is through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
