Far too many deaths and serious injuries result from doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and hospitals failing to follow basic protocol. The tragic consequences are preventable accidents where people get sick or suffer a serious injury as a result of a medical professional’s carelessness.
Doctors and other healthcare professionals are required to meet a high “standard of care” based on their education and training. This standard involves the accepted rules and practices for treating patients in a similar situation as yours. When a doctor or healthcare professional fails to provide a patient with adequate medical care and medical treatment, it becomes medical malpractice.
At TopDog Law, we are committed to helping victims of medical negligence ease the pain and financial burden of their injury. Bringing a medical malpractice claim is expensive. Fortunately, we have the resources to fight back against wealthy doctors and hospitals with no up-front cost to our client.
Assuming you are not an expert in medical procedures and questions, the obvious question is how do you know that a doctor or healthcare professional violated the standard of care before injuring you or making you sicker?
Sometimes, it is obvious. Most of the time, however, it is best to call in and share your story. We can give you advice whether you want to use us to file a medical malpractice claim or another law firm.
Based on our experience, some of the most common types of medical malpractice injuries include
Unlike many states, Pennsylvania does not have a cap in medical malpractice cases. That means that victims of medical malpractice are entitled to receive compensation for every hardship they have suffered due to the negligence of a doctor or healthcare professional. These can include:
Importantly, you should NEVER accept a settlement offer from a doctor, hospital, or insurance company without first consulting an attorney.
The short answer is nothing. Our medical malpractice lawyers work on a contingency basis meaning they do not get paid unless you get paid. We also cover all the up-front costs for expenses like experts who we will use to testify on your behalf. Therefore, we have every incentive to ensure that we win and get you the most compensation possible for your injury. CALL (800) 215-7211 and tell us your story today.
