What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider is negligent – either performing or omitting something that is considered standard medical practice – and causes injury to the patient through that negligence.

If a treatment or procedure was not successful, is that medical malpractice?

Medical professionals cannot guarantee medical results. When an unexpected or unsuccessful result occurs it does not necessarily mean there was malpractice.

How do I know if I have a medical malpractice case?

If you feel you have a case, talk to one of our Allentown medical malpractice lawyers as soon as possible. Tell your attorney what happened starting with your first visit. Remember to bring your medical records with you.

To prove medical malpractice you must show that:

1. Your healthcare provider had a legal duty to provide care or treatment for you.

2. That duty was breached because the provider failed to provide you with the appropriate care that another healthcare worker would have provided.

3. That breach caused an injury.

4. You suffered monetary or emotional damages as a result of the injury.

Did I waive my right to recover for medical malpractice if I signed a consent form?

No. You may still recover if you can show that your doctor was negligent and that you were injured due to that doctor’s negligence. Galfand Berger’s Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers are skilled litigators who will aggressively fight for your rights and pursue the maximum financial recovery for your injuries.
