MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Pennsylvania medical malpractice cases are handled by Feldman Shepherd lawyers.Feldman Shepherd is proud of the reputation it has earned in the handling of medical malpractice cases. In this complex field, medical expertise is as important as an understanding of the unique legal principles applicable to malpractice claims. Doctors and hospitals can and do make medical and medication errors. The lawyers of Feldman Shepherd have distinguished themselves in litigation involving the following areas:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • ARDS – Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
  • Birth trauma and birth injuries, including birth hypoxia, brain-damaged infants, kernicterus, spina bifida, and cerebral palsy
  • Dental errors
  • Diagnosis delay, misdiagnosis, or failure to diagnose
  • Doctor and hospital mistakes and infections
  • Emergency room negligence
  • Obstetrical and gynecological malpractice
  • Orthopedic malpractice
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Surgical mistakes, wrong-site surgery, and other negligence

Healthcare professionals and facilities have a standard of care which they must follow when treating patients. If the healthcare professional or facility does not adhere to that standard, and you are injured as a result, then you may have a valid claim for medical malpractice. We represent the injured person or the family of the injured person and work with the hospital system and medical law system to find out what your rights and legal options are.

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has reported that over 225,000 people die each year due to “iatrogenic” causes—adverse effects of medical treatment or advice. Unnecessary surgeries cause 12,000 deaths per year, medication errors in hospitals cause 7,000 deaths per year, other errors in hospitals cause 20,000 deaths per year, and infections in hospitals cause 80,000 deaths per year. This has become the third leading cause of death in the United States, after deaths from heart disease and cancer.

Our experienced attorneys can help you secure all of the compensation to which you may be entitled. This may include compensation for your pain and suffering, financial losses, emotional distress, and medical expenses. In some cases, you may also be entitled to punitive damages for another party’s wrongdoing.

Our attorneys can help you deal with your insurance company, as well as the insurer of the other party or parties. Insurance companies have lawyers working hard to minimize their payouts; you need a lawyer who will work just as hard for you.

If you or a loved one has been injured by medical malpractice, contact us today.
