Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Car accidents kill 1.3 million Americans each year. Did you know that medical mistakes kill even more?
Medical malpractice has reached epidemic levels in this country, but it’s not something you hear about all that often. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., just behind cancer and heart disease. So why aren’t more people aware of this silent, sinister killer? Pharmaceutical companies and hospitals are wealthy and powerful corporations. They have every reason to keep you from knowing just how often they make grave errors. And far too often, doctors fail to speak up when they make a mistake.
At LawMD, we are Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers and doctors who stand up to big hospitals and big pharma. We take on the tough cases no one else will touch, and we advocate for people who have been told they’re just imagining things or simply trying to get attention. We also challenge doctors to explain their treatment decisions and their failure to abide by the accepted standard of care. If you have been injured due to a doctor’s mistake, a hospital’s negligence, or an error on the part of a health care professional or institution, we are confident we can help you.
Philadelphia’s Premier Medical Malpractice Lawyers
LawMD is a nationally recognized law firm known for taking on some of the biggest hospital systems in the country. Other medical malpractice law firms consult with physicians. Many of our attorneys actually are physicians. This gives us unique insight into these challenging and complex cases.
Whether you have lost a loved one due to a medical error, or you have suffered a life-changing injury because a doctor acted negligently, our lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve. Each case is different, but you can generally expect to receive money for:
- Hospital bills
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Doctors’ bills
- Lost wages
- Future earnings
- Loss of companionship
- Special needs education costs
- Emotional pain and distress
In the most devastating medical malpractice cases, a grieving family must cope with the loss of a beloved father, mother, or other loved one. These families may also be able to recover funeral expenses and other compensation.
Money can’t replace what you have lost – not by a long shot. It can’t restore your health or bring back a loved one. However, financial compensation can help ease your financial burdens, giving you the time and resources you need to focus on doing whatever you can to reclaim your life or move on after a loved one has passed.
The Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle
Medicine is a huge industry. There are dozens of medical specialties for every kind of medical condition. There are just as many medicine-related subspecialties, such as pharmacology, physical therapy, nursing, and others. Every medical professional is held to a certain standard of care. When a patient is harmed due to a lapse in the applicable standard of care, medical professionals must be held responsible for their actions. When human lives are at stake, mistakes just aren’t acceptable.
Our attorneys handle a full range of medical malpractice cases. Some of our most notable successes have involved cases featuring:
- Delayed cancer diagnosis
- Emergency room mistakes
- Failure to perform cesarean section
- Hospital-acquired infections
- Delay in delivery during childbirth
- Failure to monitor patient
- Wrongful amputations
- Prescription errors
- Failure to thoroughly review medical history
No matter what type of medical malpractice issue you’re facing, our doctors have the knowledge and skill to obtain phenomenal results in your case.
Don’t Miss Your Chance to Get Compensation for Your Injuries
The law in Pennsylvania limits the amount of time in which you have to bring a medical malpractice claim. There are, however, exceptions to the general rule, so don’t assume that your claim is barred. For example, if you did not discover a doctor’s mistake until recently, you may still be able to file a claim. Our lawyers can evaluate your case to determine if you are still within the statute of limitation.
