But first, it’s important to understand what type of healthcare professional medical errors are considered as medical malpractice.

What Constitutes as Medical Negligence by a Health Care Provider?

Medical malpractice refers to the action of a physician, nurse, or another healthcare specialist which constitutes a deviation from the standard of care in the medical community. These medical mistakes may occur in an office, hospital, or nursing home setting.

Thousands of individuals die and/or suffer from permanent, disabling, or catastrophic injuries every year as a result of these mistakes.

If you have been a victim of medical malpractice, our Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyers at Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C. can help you take legal action.

How Do I Prove I’ve Been a Victim of Medical Malpractice?

In order for you or a loved one to have a legitimate medical malpractice case, you will have to be able to prove that the medical provider’s performance was considered to be lower than the accepted standard of care.

You also must have a medical professional act as an expert witness on your behalf, who can attest to the medical negligence.

Additionally, you must ensure that you are within the scope of your state’s medical malpractice statute of limitations guidelines. Personal injury laws vary across the country – so the guidelines in New York City, New York or Orlando, Florida could differ from that here in Pennsylvania.

The law offices of HGSK will be able to investigate the incident and help uncover any evidence that may be beneficial to your case. Call today for a free case evaluation with one of our medical malpractice attorneys.
