Medical Malpractice in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Thousands of Americans die every year because of medical malpractice and negligence. A well regarded study by Harvard University stated that over one million people are victims of medical malpractice and negligence each year in the United States caused by doctors, nurses, technicians, other healthcare professionals and defective medical devices.

Medical malpractice and negligence can occur wherever medical care and treatment is rendered, such as in hospitals, nursing homes, doctor’s offices, same day surgery centers, dental offices, and dialysis centers.

Medical malpractice and negligence can be the failure to diagnose a disease or medical condition, a birth injury caused by a prolonged and difficult labor that was mismanaged, medication dispensing errors, anesthesia and surgical mistakes, emergency room errors or contracting an infection while hospitalized. Over twenty thousand people were infected in Pennsylvania hospitals in the span of one year and over twenty-five hundred of that number died.
