Get Justice And Compensation For Medical Errors
According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, medical errors caused by malpractice and neglect are the third leading cause of death in America today. Medical errors claim more lives than stroke, accidents, lung disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Only heart disease and cancer cause more deaths than medical errors.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Many medical errors are a result of breakdowns in the system. When medical providers and hospitals do not follow the appropriate safety and care standards and rules that are put in place to keep patients out of harm’s way, critical and often fatal errors happen.
Our firm is known across Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia for our extensive and thorough approach to medical injury and malpractice cases. Our prior successes include obtaining compensation for individuals harmed through:
- Misdiagnosis or failure to treat illnesses, including errors leading to unnecessary and harmful treatments
- Surgical errors, including improper practice, failure to properly sterilize materials and other mismanagement
- Medication errors, including failure to properly administer medicine in a hospital setting and over medication issues
If you believe that you or someone you know has been injured because a medical provider or hospital failed to provide appropriate care, you should act immediately. In Pennsylvania, an adult victim injured by a medical error must bring their claim within two years of death or injury. In West Virginia, there is even less time to file a claim; you only have one year. Ohio is similar, your time to file a claim may be as short as one year.
