What Are the Common Types of Medical Malpractice?
There are many different types of medical malpractice. Some of the most common types include:
Misdiagnosis: This type of medical malpractice is committed when a healthcare provider fails to accurately diagnose a patient. Healthcare providers often misdiagnose patients as a result of their failure to order the appropriate tests, review the patient’s medical history, or listen to the patient’s explanation of their symptoms.
Surgical Errors: Examples of surgical errors include performing the wrong procedure, operating on the wrong body part or patient, using surgical tools that have not been sterilized, leaving surgical tools inside the patient, or causing nerve or organ damage during the surgery.
Medication Errors: A medication error involves the prescription or administration of prescription medication. Examples of this type of medical malpractice include prescribing the wrong amount of medication, prescribing a medication that the patient is allergic to, prescribing a medication that may interact with other medications the patient is taking, or administering the medication incorrectly.
Birth Injuries: Birth injuries occur during labor and delivery. This type of malpractice can occur when a healthcare provider fails to closely monitor the mother and unborn baby during labor and delivery. Healthcare providers can also cause birth injuries by using the wrong tools or using too much force during the baby’s birth.
A personal injury attorney at KaplunMarx can review your case to determine if you have a valid medical negligence claim.
Who Can I Sue For Medical Negligence in Pennsylvania?
Doctors aren’t the only ones who can be sued for medical malpractice. Victims of malpractice can take legal action against any negligent healthcare provider, including doctors, surgeons, nurses, dentists, and other medical professionals. In some medical malpractice cases, victims also have the right to sue the hospital where the malpractice occurred.
What is the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Cases in Pennsylvania?
The statute of limitations on most medical negligence cases is two years in the state of Pennsylvania. This means that victims must file a lawsuit within two years from the date the injury was sustained or within two years from the date they first discovered the injury.
The law also states that victims must file lawsuits within seven years from the date the malpractice occurred. This means that a victim who did not immediately discover his injuries has seven years to do so. If a medical malpractice lawsuit is not filed within this timeframe, the victim loses the right to seek justice against the negligent healthcare provider.
What Do Medical Malpractice Attorneys Do?
Medical negligence cases are extremely complex, which is why it’s best to work with one of the top medical malpractice law firms in the state. An experienced personal injury lawyer can work with medical experts to analyze complex medical evidence to determine who is liable for your injuries.
A medical malpractice attorney can begin building a strong case against the at-fault parties that clearly shows how their negligence led to your injuries. An attorney can also handle stressful negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company.
If the insurance company is not willing to make a fair offer, we will file a lawsuit and take your case to court. We will handle every aspect of your case so the stress of a lawsuit does not affect your ability to recover from your injuries.
How to Find the Best Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Pennsylvania?
Take time to find the best medical negligence lawyers instead of hiring the first personal injury attorney you come across. Ask trusted friends, family members, and colleagues for recommendations. You can also reach out to the local bar association for assistance.
Be sure to read the online reviews of each attorney that is under consideration so you can see what other clients had to say about working with them. It’s also wise to schedule a consultation with the attorney prior to hiring him or her so you have an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the attorney’s services.
