Medical Malpractice

Doctors and other health-care providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients. While a simple mistake is not enough to constitute negligence, an injury or death caused by the failure to provide reasonably appropriate or common standards of care or the failure to diagnose a detectable condition may be malpractice.

We aggressively investigate and pursue claims for catastrophic injuries and death arising out of:

  • Birth Trauma
  • Failure to Diagnose Cancer and Other Diseases
  • Inappropriate or Negligently Performed Surgery
  • Anesthesia Injuries / Death
  • Disfigurement
  • Inappropriate or Dangerous Treatment Practices
  • Pharmaceutical Injuries and Prescription Drug Errors
  • Hospital and HMO Claims.

Our experience allows us to help clients determine whether or not malpractice has occurred and, when justified, help them recover just compensation for their injuries.   Our law firm represents clients throughout the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area, including Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks and Chester counties.

In addition to our medical malpractice experience, we also represent clients who are the victims of nursing home abuse or neglect. The federal Nursing Home Reform Amendments of 1987, and corresponding state laws, protect residents in nearly all nursing facilities.

For residents who lack decision-making capacity, the resident's agent under a power of attorney for health care or another legal representative recognized by state law may exercise the resident's rights.

Federal law requires that nursing homes meet strong basic standards for the quality of life of each resident and for the provision of services and activities. There are many specific rights guaranteed by federal and state law.

If you notice any of the following signs of abuse, please contact our office immediately.

  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Pressure Sores / Bed Sores
  • Dry Skin
  • Chapped Lips
  • Unexplained Weight Loss
  • Inability to Eat
  • Infections
  • Falls / Broken Bones
  • Excessive Bruising
  • Verbal Abuse
  • Physical Abuse.
