When you or a loved one are sick or injured, you depend upon doctors and hospitals to provide careful and competent treatment. Most of the time this is what you receive. However, healthcare providers sometimes fail to meet their standards of care and as a result patients are sometimes seriously injured or even lose their life.
Examples of medical malpractice cases include death or serious injury from:
• Misdiagnosis (the wrong diagnosis),
• Delayed Diagnosis (taking too long to diagnose your ailment),
• Failure to Diagnose (missing the problem all together),
• Surgical Error,
• Surgical Injuries,
• Wrong site surgeries,
• Foreign Objects left behind after surgery,
• Medication Error,
• Failure to Refer to a Specialist,
• Birth Injuries, and
• Dental Malpractice.
The failure to diagnose cancer, for example, can lead to loss of precious time in treatment, which can drastically reduce one's chance of survival from the disease.
Medical negligence or malpractice can cause one to sustain damages such as:
• Serious & Permanent Injury,
• The need for additional operations and procedures,
• Additional recovery time,
• Additional medical expenses,
• Past and future wage loss & loss of benefits,
• Pain & suffering,
• Emotional distress, and
• Loss of your spouse's services (consortium).
Medical Malpractice cases are often complicated and require not only an expertise of the law but also of medicine. Pennsylvania rules require plaintiffs to file a Certificate of Merit when filing a lawsuit that requires a hired expert to certify that the defendant deviated from accepted medical practices that resulted in the plaintiff’s injuries.
Once medical negligence is established, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and past and future wage loss, among other losses.
