The astonishing record, which includes the largest medical malpractice verdict that Pennsylvania has seen in years, positions Ross Feller Casey among the premier law firms in the nation.
Much of the success can be attributed to the trust placed in Ross Feller Casey by families living in the Lehigh Valley who turned to our leading Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyers for help with their life-altering injuries.
Our law firm has successfully litigated numerous medical malpractice cases against area doctors and the major hospitals throughout the region, including those within the Lehigh Valley Hospital, St. Luke’s, and Sacred Heart healthcare networks. Our clients are your neighbors who live in towns in and around Lehigh and Northampton counties, like Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Nazareth, Emmaus, Macungie, Whitehall, and elsewhere including New Jersey.
The courtroom victories include, among many others, one of the largest verdicts ever in the Allentown, PA area — $23.1 million in Lehigh County for a woman who lost both her legs to amputation due to medical errors. Won by founding partner Matt Casey, the case involved a home care nurse who failed to properly evaluate and timely report an infected catheter resulting in a life-threatening infection.
According to studies, as many as 440,000 victims in the U.S. die each year from preventable hospital errors made by a medical professional. That makes medical negligence the third leading cause of death in America.
Medical malpractice is a broad term. It can result from any number of causes, including improper use of a medical device, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, hospital-based infections, anesthesia mistakes, and delay in diagnosis or treatment. That includes the failure to diagnose cancer.
Such misdiagnosis cases are far more common than you might think. A recent Institute for Medicine study found that most Americans will suffer from a doctor's failure to diagnose a condition at least once in their lifetime, often with tragic results.
The complex nature of such cases underscores the need for hiring the best Allentown medical malpractice attorney in Lehigh Valley, PA to handle your case.
