The courtroom victories include, among many others, one of the largest verdicts ever in the Allentown area — $23.1 million in Lehigh County for a woman who lost both her legs to amputation as a result of medical errors.

According to studies, as many as 440,000 people in the U.S. die each year from preventable hospital errors. That makes medical negligence the third leading cause of death in America.
What exactly is considered medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a broad term and it can result from any number of causes, including improper use of a medical device, surgical error, hospital-based infections, and misdiagnosis or failure to treat in a timely manner. It’s more common than you might think. A recent Institute for Medicine study found that most Americans will suffer from a wrong or late diagnosis from a doctor at least once in their lifetime, often with tragic results.
The complex nature of such cases underscores the need for hiring the best medical malpractice attorney in the Lehigh Valley to handle your case.
