We Hold Medical Providers Accountable
Recent studies have shown that more than 200,000 people die every year because of preventable medical mistakes, and medical malpractice can happen to anyone – young or old. One of the only ways to hold a health care provider accountable for a medical error is through a medical malpractice claim. In addition to “accountability,” medical negligence cases frequently result in important changes in policies and procedures that can help prevent the same mistakes from happening again to another patient. Victims of medical malpractice may be entitled to significant compensation for injuries and the resulting costs. In fact, our attorneys have achieved extraordinary results for our clients, securing millions of dollars on their behalf.
We Investigate All Types Of Medical Malpractice Cases
Our team of attorneys is not afraid to fight for your interests. We have successfully pursued and obtained fair compensation for victims of medical malpractice in cases ranging from failure to diagnose cancer to delivery and childbirth injuries. These are just some of the types of malpractice cases we handle for clients in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and all surrounding Pennsylvania counties:
- Failure to diagnose medical conditions
- Failure to diagnose and/or treat all types of cancer (including lymphoma, malignant melanoma, breast, cervical, colon, esophageal and lung cancer)
- Birth-related injuries, including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy and shoulder injuries
- Complications of pregnancy and childbirth

We all place our trust in medical professionals, hospitals and nursing homes, but they are not beyond reproach. Sometimes even well-qualified and well-intentioned health care professionals fail to do the job they are required to do, and patients suffer needlessly. Malpractice cases help keep the health care industry accountable for its mistakes and frequently result in improvements in the overall quality of health care.
