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.
