Medical Malpractice

With nearly 30 years of experience as medical malpractice lawyers, we have handled some of the most difficult and devastating cases in Pennsylvania. Medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of death and injury in Pennsylvania and the United States.

Medical malpractice liability is based on the laws of negligence. Medical malpractice is a legal cause of action that occurs when a health care professional deviates from his/her professional standard of care, which causes injury to the patient. As a general rule, medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional does not demonstrate a fair, reasonable and competent degree of skill when providing medical care for a patient.

Medical professionals who can be potentially liable for malpractice include, but are not limited to: physicians, surgeons, hospitals, clinics, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, therapists, pharmacists, dentists, chiropractors, etc.
