Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice


Each year, thousands of people are injured as a result of medical error. According to a study conducted by Harvard University, approximately 80,000 people die as a result of medical malpractice each year in the United States. These injuries are the result of mistakes caused by doctors, anesthesiologists, surgeons, residents, nurses, pharmacists, technicians and malfunctioning medical devices.

Birth injuries such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, fetal stroke, and traumatic brain injury are a few examples of injuries that can occur as a result of medical malpractice.

In Pennsylvania, a ‘certificate of merit’ must be filed within 60 days from the filing of the malpractice claim. A certificate of merit is a document from a medical professional which states that the medical care received by the injured party was unacceptable and below the acceptable standard of care.
