5-year-old faces lifelong consequences of birth injury

Most Pennsylvania parents will do everything necessary to protect their children. To explain to a child why he or she is different than other children because of a birth injury is a heartbreaking undertaking. Knowing that the injury was caused by negligence of medical professionals and that it could have been avoided is certainly a bitter pill to swallow.

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.

A Pennsylvania man whose leg was amputated after an automobile accident in 1987 has used the same prosthetics supplier for 27 years. Due to normal usage, the artificial limb needs replacement at times, and he says that the company's expertise has always impressed him. However, he claims to have received unacceptable service from the company in September last year and has recently filed a claim of medical negligence against it.

Zoo mechanic dies after fatal work injury

While we see regular reports about workplace accidents that caused injury or death in the construction and industrial industries, workers in many other fields face hazardous workplace situations. It is not uncommon for smaller industries to fail to recognize the potential dangers, and safety regulations are often ignored. Despite the size of the operation and the type of activities that take place, company owners in Pennsylvania have a duty to prevent work injury and ensure the safety of employees.

How much time do I have to file a medical malpractice claim?

Pennsylvania residents who have suffered the consequences of medical negligence or malpractice may face continued medical expenses and, in some cases, even disabilities that will affect the remainder of their lives. However, it is not uncommon for the impact of the medical errors to become evident as time passes. Victims of medical malpractice may want to take note that there are time restrictions to filing claims to pursue recovery of damages.
