Medical Malpractice Attorney in Beaver County and Surrounding Areas of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
When doctors provide negligent care and cause you serious injury, you do not have to simply endure the sometimes lifelong consequences of their substandard conduct. Medical professionals and medical institutions must be held accountable for their mistakes, especially when they cause you significant physical, emotional or financial injury. Good doctors can make mistakes too; after all, we are all human. Obtaining what you deserve in a medical malpractice case is not about ruining a doctor’s medical practice. It is about helping you gain recovery for your losses and working to make you whole again.
As soon as you think you may have been a victim of medical negligence, it is important to contact a Pennsylvania attorney with experience in investigating and analyzing medical cases. Call the Melton Law Firm for a free initial consultation.
You may be dealing with time constraints in regard to filing your claim. There is a statute of limitations that, as a general rule, gives a victim of medical malpractice only two years within which to file a lawsuit following the incident. The filing of a medical malpractice lawsuit should be done with the assistance of an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
Doctors are not the only medical professionals capable of medical negligence. Nurses, nurse’s aides, hospital and laboratory technicians, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners and nurse anesthetists, cytologists, neuromonitorists, health care facilities, and others who provide medical services can misdiagnose, mistreat, fail to carry out doctor’s orders and fail to communicate with doctors or other health care providers and furnish other substandard care that causes an injury to a patient.
We represent clients and their loved ones who have experienced birth injuries, surgical mishaps, and other forms of medical negligence. A misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis can have terrible consequences when your condition involves cancer, a heart attack, stroke, fracture, or even an infection.
