Independent studies have confirmed that each year, more than a million people suffer injuries or death as a result of the negligence of medical providers, including doctors, anesthesiologists, nurses and hospitals. Thorough investigation by attorneys and qualified medical specialists can reveal medical errors which could have been avoided.
Our attorneys have significant experience in investigating and prosecuting medical malpractice claims. We have successfully litigated medical malpractice claims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and have reached many settlements without the necessity of going to trial.
Medical practitioners are required by law to render appropriate medical care within what is known as the “applicable standard of care”. That standard requires doctors to apply available medical knowledge, techniques and science in the diagnosis and treatment of their patients.
If a medical practitioner deviates from the standard and causes harm to the patient, the practitioner can be held liable. Such financial liability may require the practitioner to pay reasonable and necessary medical expenses, lost income, compensation for pain and suffering, and in the most egregious circumstances, punitive damages.
