Is failure to diagnose an illness medical malpractice?


When a patient sees a medical professional and explains a set of symptoms, the patient can reasonably expect that tests will be conducted, the symptoms will be taken into account and a diagnosis will be given. Once there is a diagnosis, treatment can begin. But, what if the medical professional diagnoses the wrong malady, or worse, fails altogether to diagnose an illness or disease? In Pennsylvania, this can rise to the level of medical malpractice.

Invasion of privacy may rise to level of medical malpractice


When one thinks of a medical malpractice case, incidents such as surgical errors, failures to diagnose an illness, or secondary infections may come to mind. In Pennsylvania, as elsewhere, medical professionals are not only supposed to do their jobs correctly, they are also held to a higher standard of conduct. As it turns out, falling below such standards may constitute also medical malpractice.

Pennsylvania text ban does not protect against distracted drivers


Our state bans texting while driving. But, it fails to account for the many other kinds of distracted driving that can cause a car accident. This means that motorists cannot rely on law enforcement to keep distracted drivers off the road. Instead, they must drive defensively and if an accident does occur, seek a legal remedy.

Sometimes a lawyer is 'just what the doctor ordered'


In Pennsylvania, when you visit a hospital or doctor's office, or move a loved one into a care facility, you expect to be treated with the utmost care and professionalism. And in the vast majority of cases, you receive the care you expect. Unfortunately, however, mistakes happen, as do negligent or deliberate acts that result in harm or in some instances, death. At such times, you need the help of a seasoned medical negligence attorney.
