Maximize Compensation After A Medical Malpractice Injury
Doctors, nurses and other health care professionals rely on their training and experience, and we expect them to make proper diagnoses, render appropriate treatment and provide adequate follow-up care to procedures. Sometimes a medical outcome is not what we were expecting, however, and incidents of negligence may warrant a medical malpractice lawsuit. The Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyers at Schmidt, Kirifides & Rassias handle injury cases that develop from incorrect diagnoses, mistakes during routine procedures, or careless errors in complex surgeries.
At our firm, medical malpractice lawyers successfully advocate for victims of medical negligence that can involve birth injuries, including cerebral palsy, misdiagnosed or late-diagnosed cancer, medication errors, post-operative infections, gastric bypass surgery, anesthesia, ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome), emergency room delays and mistakes, radiation overdoses, fertility injuries, surgical staple complications and wrong-site surgeries.
Determining Negligence In Health Care Settings
While there are always risks of negative outcomes or side effects from medical procedures and treatments, an unsuccessful result could also be due to medical malpractice. When a physician or other health care provider commits malpractice, he or she has failed to meet the standard of care to which health care providers with similar training and experience are held. When a patient is injured or killed as a result of such a failure, the patient and/or his or her loved ones may be entitled to compensation for their losses.
Medical negligence occurs when an individual in the medical profession does not fulfill his or her duties to take care of a patient in a standard manner. Catastrophic injuries or fatalities can occur because of common emergency room mistakes, prescription drug errors, incorrect treatment, or a misdiagnosed heart attack, blood clot, or breast cancer. Other cases where patients have suffered needlessly arise out of nursing home neglect, elder abuse, and treatment administered without informed consent.
The Importance Of Experienced Legal Counsel
