Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice Attorney

Medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. behind heart disease and cancer.* In 2016, over $3.8 billion was paid out for medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice occurs when a health-care provider, during the treatment of a patient, deviates from the recognized “standard of care,” defined as what a reasonably-prudent medical provider would (or would not) have done under the same, or similar, circumstances.

Injury or death from a medical procedure isn't always proof of medical negligence. A thorough review of the case details including pertinent medical records, interviews with the patient, family members and friends, other healthcare providers, etc. should be conducted by an experienced attorney to determine whether the case is actionable.

The statute of limitations (deadline by which a lawsuit must be filed or be permanently barred) in Pennsylvania is two years, as are the procedural requirements that must be met before a medical malpractice lawsuit is filed. However, filing too soon may result in not including the long-term effects caused by the injury, which is another reason for consulting an experienced attorney.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death from what you suspect may be medical malpractice, contact us today. You may be able to receive financial compensation for your medical costs, lost wages and future earnings, and pain and suffering due to a medical professional's negligence.

At Lepley, Engelman, Yaw, and Wilk, we have years of experience in filing successful medical malpractice lawsuits.
