Am I Alone?

In our darkest moments, we trust medical professionals to cure our ailments, to keep us healthy, and to prolong our lives. But all too often, they are negligent in their duty to do no harm. Instead of having your suffering curtailed, you may find yourself or a loved one in even greater pain, or worse. 

But you are not alone. In fact, medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, resulting in the loss of as many as 400,000 lives annually

Because medical malpractice is so common, it’s all the more important that we hold the negligent parties responsible. Contact us today to get started. 

What Are Some Types of Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is defined as failing to meet the standard of care that is set by the medical community to ensure that patients receive the same care, regardless of their geographic location. If a patient is injured or dies because a medical professional fails to meet this standard of care, it could be grounds for a medical malpractice case. 

These are some types of medical malpractice cases our specialized attorneys have handled:

  • Emergency Room Errors, including incorrect distribution of medication, delayed diagnosis, or misdiagnosis
  • Anesthesia Awareness, or when a patient awakens during surgery
  • Post-operative Negligence, or when a patient is not properly monitored following a procedure, typically surgery
  • Birth Injury, such as failing to perform a c-section in time
  • Hospital Malpractice when hospitals fail to hire qualified staff or to ensure that their machines are functioning correctly

What Kinds of Compensation Could I Recover?

Our Philadelphia attorneys will begin by gathering documentation and speaking to experts in the field. They will then attempt to negotiate with the insurance company. However, if the insurance company decides to play unfairly and to offer a low settlement, our attorneys are ready and willing to take your case into the courtroom. With more than 700 attorneys and 3,000 support staff, we have the resources to fight for everything you need to get back on your feet. 

Although each case is different, some of the compensation that you could be entitled to includes:

  • Medical Expenses, such as medications, doctors’ visits, and rehabilitation
  • Pain and Suffering to assuage the emotional distress that can be caused by medical malpractice
  • Wrongful Death if the absolute worst has happened
  • Punitive Damages so that no one else suffers what you did
