We expect doctors, nurses, dentists, and healthcare facilities to practice the highest standard of care because they have a duty to the patients they treat. But sometimes, they fail in this duty, and their negligence results in severe injury or death.
An injury or wrongful death can deal a financial blow to you and your family. Compensation can cover your losses and safeguard your future. A Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyer from TopDog Law can handle the legal aspects of your case while you recover or grieve. Call us today for your free consultation.

It costs absolutely nothing to see if you have a case
You expect your doctor to provide you with competent and responsible medical treatment. However, their negligence resulted in your injuries. Now you have costly medical bills, lost income due to missing work, pain and suffering, and possibly other damages that compensation can cover.
These injuries and financial losses negatively impact your life and put your future at risk. Our law firm will seek to recover damages for you in Pennsylvania, including:
Our firm has won million-dollar settlements for people like you. However, the value of your case will depend on several factors, including the severity of your injuries and the amount of economic and non-economic losses you have suffered as a result.
Your Pennsylvania medical malpractice attorney will investigate your case to determine all the losses you suffered. We will then use that information to seek the compensation you deserve.
Medical malpractice happens when a healthcare professional negligently causes injury or death to a patient under their care. Healthcare professionals have a duty of care to their patients and must provide services that live up to the expected standard of care.
The following elements of negligence must be proven in your medical malpractice case:
Your healthcare provider has a duty to provide you with reasonable and competent medical treatment. Your medical malpractice lawyer at TopDog Law can help identify the liable party and hold them accountable so regain a sense of normalcy in your life.
Your healthcare provider and the insurer will each have their lawyers representing them. Having a lawyer of your own evens the playing field and provides you with an advocate who will protect your best interests and guide you through the legal process.
If you hire a medical malpractice lawyer from our firm, we will invest time, attention, and resources into your case. We will also handle critical case tasks that include:
A legal fight against a healthcare provider and their insurance company might not be one you want to deal with alone. Our firm strongly believes in fighting for the underdog. While you are injured and recovering, our team is proud to stand up for you in your time of need.
You have the right to seek compensation through the legal process when a healthcare provider negligently causes an injury to you or causes the wrongful death of someone you love. You deserve to hold the liable party accountable and bring them to justice.
When clients choose TopDog Law to manage their medical malpractice cases, they get a firm that cares about their well-being. You won’t feel alone while we fight to get the money you need.
Our former clients have great things to say about the legal services they received, and they leave reviews like the following:
Though any healthcare professional can commit medical malpractice, many medical malpractice lawsuits are filed against medical doctors. There are several types of mistakes that physicians, nurses, dentists, and other health professionals can make on the job that can result in injury or death to a patient.
Types of medical malpractice include:
Medical malpractice is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 250,000 deaths per year. Reducing this number means holding healthcare providers accountable so they will not hurt anyone else in the future.
If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a medical malpractice case, allow our team to pursue justice on your behalf.
If you are hesitant to hire a lawyer because of concerns about cost, we understand. Our response to your concern is that our services cost you nothing upfront or out of pocket. Our medical malpractice lawyers work on a contingency-fee basis, so you only pay us when we win your case, and you receive compensation.
Our fee is a reasonable percentage of the compensation we recover for you. Your lawyer will explain how payment works in more detail when you reach out to us.
We have every incentive to fight for you and win. Our firm covers all the costs of fighting your case. We also offer free consultations to evaluate your claim, and you can ask us any questions about the legal process. At TopDog Law, we believe everyone should have access to legal representation regardless of their financial status.
In some cases, medical malpractice victims can recover the compensation they need through an insurance claim. We can work with you to file your claim and negotiate for the settlement you deserve. However, in other cases, insurers refuse to settle fairly. This may prompt you to file a lawsuit against the liable party. You won’t have forever to submit your lawsuit, though.
If you are the victim of medical malpractice, we urge you to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. You only have two years from the date the medical malpractice occurred, or the date you discovered your injury, to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, according to Pennsylvania law.
If you fail to file your lawsuit by this deadline, you will lose your right to seek compensation for your losses through the legal process. We can help you review your options and will work to meet the statute of limitations in your case, so your voice is heard.
Personal injury law is at the heart of our legal practice. We have worked with clients who have suffered damages in a range of accident types.
These are only a few examples of the personal injury cases our team works on. If you don’t see your case type, don’t fret. We can still discuss your injuries during a free case evaluation.
No patient should ever be the victim of medical malpractice. Unfortunately, medical malpractice can cause catastrophic injuries that prevent you from living as you once did. When healthcare providers violate patients’ trust and dignity, they should be held accountable.
That’s why we consider it our duty to represent the underdog and handle your medical malpractice case. Compensation can cover your losses and help you and your family rebuild your lives, knowing a more secure future lies ahead.
Your lawyer should have experience handling medical malpractice cases, and they should empathize with you. That’s our law firm. At TogDog Law, we fight for you.
