Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyers Successfully Handle Complex Medical Malpractice Claims
Experience and knowledge are critical to securing compensation for healthcare errors
Law and medicine are both complicated fields, and when they meet in a medical malpractice claim, the knowledge required to support that claim can be intimidating. Lawyers on both sides rely on medical records, expert testimony and healthcare best practices to prove their cases. The Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers at McCann & Wall help you build a successful medical malpractice case. Our record of courtroom success and generous settlements and verdicts speaks for itself. When you’ve suffered due to the mistakes or oversight of a healthcare professional, our legal team can help.
Common medical malpractice claims
We all rely on doctors to provide the best quality of care to keep us healthy or to make us healthy again. But when mistakes are made, it’s not just a matter of dissatisfaction, but putting your life and well-being in danger.
- Birth injuries. Delivering a baby is still an intense and possibly traumatic experience for a mother, even with modern advances in medicine. If potential problems aren’t identified, or proper procedures aren’t followed, both the mother and the baby can be hurt or killed in the process.
- Failure to diagnose. Lack of communication, inexperience and simple distraction can all lead a doctor to misdiagnose a condition or miss a major diagnosis completely, and a lack of proper treatment can cost you valuable time or an incorrect treatment can cause more damage.
- Medication errors. If a doctor prescribes the wrong medication, a pharmacist provides the wrong medicine, or either person overlooks a dangerous medical interaction, your life can be put in grave danger including illness or organ failure.
- Surgical errors. Surgery is complex, and if any step goes wrong, be it during anesthesia, the procedure itself, or even after the procedure, it can have a major impact on your health and well-being, requiring further surgeries or lifelong care to treat.
We handle all types of medical negligence claims including those arising from the following:
Why You Need an Experienced Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical malpractice claims require a great deal of expertise and resources. The field of medicine is not only complex, but it is always changing. What may have been an acceptable treatment last year may now be obsolete. Since no one can know the full breadth of medical protocol at any one time, it often becomes necessary to bring in expert witnesses to evaluate your condition and quality of treatment.
Our experienced Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers not only have a cursory knowledge of medicine, but know the right experts to call on to build your particular case, confirm that you received substandard care and secure the compensation you deserve.
