Who is Liable in Cases of Medical Malpractice in Philadelphia?

 

Doctors and hospitals do what they can to provide good healthcare to their patients and do no harm. Unfortunately, sometimes mistakes do happen and while a medical error may be unintentional it can still cause serious injury or even wrongful death. Depending on the exact circumstances the fault may lay with the negligent party, such as:

 

  • Hospital

  • Doctors

  • Nurses

  • Pharmacy

  • Surgeon

 

In order to successfully sue a person or an organization for medical malpractice, it is essential to prove fault which led to personal injury or to wrongful death. To prove this, your attorney needs to establish that the medical professional did not exercise the proper standard of care when treating you or your loved one. In other words proof of negligence has to be established, which requires that the plaintiff and their legal counsel show that:

 

  1. The medical professional had a duty to the patient, such as a doctor-patient relationship.

  2. The duty to the patient was breached by not providing the appropriate standard of care - for this to happen the standard of care needs to be established first.

  3. There was a connection between the doctor’s lacking standards of care and the personal injury or a wrongful death.

  4. Injury to the patient occured (or a wrongful death).

 

Who can be Sued for Medical Malpractice in Pennsylvania?

 

Any licensed healthcare professional who provides you with medical services is open to a medical malpractice suit. In legal terms, medical malpractice extends beyond just doctors and includes all employees of a business involved in medical services, which includes nurses, clinicians who provide you with anesthesia, or a salesperson at the drugstore. Aside from individuals, any organization in the business of healthcare services, such as hospitals, medical equipment manufacturers, and pharmaceutical companies, are all subject to medical malpractice laws. If you need a medical malpractice lawyer near me, we are here to help.

 

How Expensive is it to Retain a Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Attorney?

 

Even when everything goes well, the cost of healthcare in Pennsylvania can be very high. When there are complications, the costs can skyrocket. Adding lawyer fees on top of that could simply be cost-prohibitive. The Philadelphia medical malpractice attorneys at the Hoover Medical Malpractice Law Firm offer free initial consultations and no up-front fees. We only get paid if and when we win your medical malpractice lawsuit.
