Ranking just below heart disease and cancer as the leading cause of death in America, medical malpractice is a serious issue today - and this is as true in Pennsylvania as it is around the country. Mistakes in the hospital that could have been prevented can account for as many as 440,000 American deaths every year, according to a recent study. The New England Journal of Medicine predicts three out of four American doctors will be sued for medical malpractice at some point or another in their lifetimes.
Medical malpractice can take a number of forms. It could be that a physician used a medical device improperly or made a mistake during surgery. It could stem from a hospital-based infection. In some cases, medical professionals make the wrong diagnosis and treatment plan for a patient, failing to treat the actual problem properly. The results can be devastating. Patients have sustained brain damage, lost limbs and died because of mistakes made in their medical care. These situations are usually complicated, which is why finding experienced medical malpractice lawyers who can help patients in Bethlehem, Harrisburg and beyond is so crucial.
