Medical Malpractice

If you or a family member has been injured because of a medical mistake, you'll need a Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyer who will look out for your best interests. Call us today for your free consultation.

GETTING THE RIGHT CARE IN PENNSYLVANIA
Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyers sloppy surgery, misread X-ray, or incorrect prescription are just some of the errors that can cause injury or death. It's true that everyone makes mistakes. But medical professionals are expected to abide by a higher standard and to understand how their actions or inaction could affect their patients.

If you or a family member has been injured because of a medical mistake, you'll need a Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyer who will look out for your best interests. Pursing a claim of medical malpractice could help you recover from your losses, as well as protect other people from dangerous or careless doctors. Call us today at (215) 569-0900, or fill out our contact form, for your free consultation.

Medical errors may include:

Undiagnosed or misdiagnosed conditions and diseases
Medication overdoses and prescription error
Surgical errors
Infection or illness caused by unsanitary equipment
Failing to advise patients about behaviors that could worsen their condition.

These types of cases require plaintiffs to prove many points in order to prevail on a claim of medical malpractice. Wapner Newman has litigated many cases on behalf of medical malpractice victims and their families, so we understand how to achieve favorable results for our clients.

If you or a family member has suffered an injury due to medical error, don't wait to get help medical malpractice cases must be filed within a certain time period after an injury is discovered. Call a Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyer today for a free consultation:

OUR PHILADELPHIA MALPRACTICE LAWYERS PROVE
Usually, in personal injury cases not related to medical care, proving that a defendant was negligent requires only a few conditions plaintiffs must show that defendants knew their action or inaction could result in serious injury to another person. In medical malpractice cases the law requires additional proof as a means of protecting healthcare providers from false claims.

A plaintiff must prove:

The existence of a doctor-patient relationship This means the patient agreed to be treated, and the doctor agreed to be hired.
Doctor negligence caused the injury A patient may need to get the opinion of a medical expert to prove that the injury was caused by doctor negligence.
The injury caused the alleged damages A patient must demonstrate a causal relationship between the injury and damages such as loss of income, additional medical expenses, or pain and suffering.
The doctor was negligent To prove negligence, a patient must show a doctor caused injury by acting in a way contrary to how a competent doctor would behave.

PREVALENCE OF MEDICAL ERRORS IN PENNSYLVANIA
A study published in the September 2013 issue of the Journal of Patient Safety reported the number of deaths attributable to hospital error could be at least 210,000 and perhaps as high as 440,000. Those figures are extrapolated from case studies and don't include errors made in non-hospital settings.

According to the study's author, a toxicologist for NASA, a number of factors make it difficult to say exactly how many deaths are caused by hospital error. Some medical errors are simply not reported. Another study found that 45 percent of physicians who believed fellow doctors were impaired or incompetent didn't report their suspicions to anyone.

Medical errors may be immediately evident, such as a medication overdose that causes cardiac arrest. Symptoms of other medical errors may be delayed, such as a disease caused by contaminated equipment. And in one shocking case reported in the quarterly medical journal Hippokratia, a woman discovered three years after a liver operation that her surgeon had left the forceps in her abdomen.

WHY ERRORS OCCUR
Medical mistakes can happen for a number of reasons:

Communication When communication breaks down between two doctors treating the same patient, or among hospital staff, people making important decisions for patients may not have all the information they need.

Record-keeping Inconsistent, outdated, or inadequate record-keeping can cause doctors to miss important details, like a patient's medication allergies.

Procedures A health care facility may lack adequate procedures for sanitation and patient handling.

Staff shortages In understaffed health care facilities, people may try to get more done by cutting corners, or ignoring procedures.

Lack of sleep Some doctors and surgeons work incredibly long hours so much so, that their ability to think clearly and handle medical instruments may be compromised.

Chemical dependence Medical professionals encounter a lot of stressful situations that could increase their risk of alcohol and drug dependence. In a 2012 survey of 7,197 surgeons, 15.4 percent who took the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) had scores indicating alcohol abuse or dependence.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Wapner Newman is proud to announce that the long civil trial stemming from the 2013 building collapse on Market Street has concluded with a $227 million settlement, which is believed to be the largest personal injury settlement in Pennsylvania history. After only four hours of deliberation, the jury returned a unanimous verdict and decided the Salvation Army was 75% responsible.
