What Is Medical Malpractice?
Samuel Fishman EsqIf you or a loved one has been hurt due to medical malpractice in Philadelphia, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. Medical malpractice is an act of negligence or an error by a heath care provider that causes harm or death to a patient. It can mean you’re given the wrong medication, the wrong treatment or the wrong surgery. It can involve a prescription error, a medical procedure performed by mistake, or performed without a patient’s consent. If you’re a victim of medical malpractice, you probably feel helpless and confused, but you do have rights, and help is available.
Contact a Philadelphia medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. Your injuries can worsen, affecting your ability to work or even to function. In most Pennsylvania cases, those injured by medical negligence have only two years under the statute of limitations to seek redress. If you fail to file a claim for damages within the required time frame, you may suffer negative, life-altering consequences for many years to come and be unable to obtain monetary recovery for your injuries. A Philadelphia medical malpractice attorney can help you to receive fair compensation in a timely manner.
