What is Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice?
Published on by Noah Paul Fardo
Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice is the deviation from the acceptable standard of care for what is acceptable when treating patients within the medical community.
Medical Malpractice is the failure of medical professionals to provide adequate treatment to patients resulting in a personal injury or substantial loss of income.
Our medical malpractice attorneys routinely review wide variety of medical malpractice cases including surgical errors, misdiagnoses, plastic surgery errors, and lack of informed consent cases.
Malpractice is believed to be the third leading cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancer, according to an article in the Journal of American Medical Association.
A physician must have the same knowledge and skill and use the same care normally used in the medical profession.
A physician whose conduct does not meet this professional standard of care is negligent and should be held responsible. Individuals in Pennsylvania are entitled to compensation when a physician’s negligence causes their injury.
Compensation for medical malpractice includes monetary recovery for past and future pain & suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, earning capacity, embarrassment, humiliation, disfigurement, and enjoyment of life.
