Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Philadelphia

What is Medical Malpractice?

It is an unfortunate fact that physicians, surgeons, and other medical professionals are susceptible to making negligent errors with their patients. When this occurs, these patients may suffer serious personal injury. If the negligence of a health care professional is to blame, there may be legal cause to file a medical malpractice claim and pursue the recovery of damages that resulted.

Simply put, medical malpractice amounts to negligence by a medical practitioner. All physicians are held to a minimum "standard of care" that they must follow with each of their patients. When they deviate from this standard, medical malpractice can occur.
