Medical malpractice: $6.25 million awarded in 2-year-old's death

The saddest experience parents could have may be burying a child, especially if the child's death was avoidable. A Pennsylvania family may be able to move forward after a jury recently found in their favor in a medical malpractice lawsuit, but the void will always remain. The lawsuit stemmed from the death of a 2-year-old girl back in 2009.

Man files medical malpractice suit after spouse's death

Individuals who need medical care would naturally want to trust in the experience of medical caregivers. However, in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, this is sometimes not the case. A man recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a rehabilitation center in another state. The claim is related to the death of his spouse that was allegedly caused by a medication error after a misdiagnosis. The plaintiff alleges that although the facility was apparently on notice of substandard practices and ongoing negligence, officials failed to improve the standards to an acceptable level.

Do you need help in pursuing a complex medical malpractice claim?

It is not uncommon for victims of medical errors in Pennsylvania to suffer lifelong consequences. If you are facing mounting medical bills for an injury or surgical error, you may be unsure of how to proceed with legal action. To have a viable claim, you will have to prove negligence, typically shown by documenting medical care that is below acceptable standards. This is commonly a complex process of investigation and preparing a strong case, and you may find the services of a medical malpractice attorney invaluable.
