Einstein Medical Center Medical Malpractice Lawyer

If you were a patient at Einstein Medical Center (now called Jefferson Einstein Philadelphia Hospital), and you believe that you are a victim of medical malpractice, it is up to you to prove it. Unfortunately, you will get no honest answers from the medical center itself, or from you doctors or nurses. Every medical malpractice claim should be handled by an experienced Philadelphia attorney. Here at The Villari Firm, PLLC, our Einstein Medical Center medical malpractice lawyer fully acknowledges the seriousness of your situation, and understands just how important it is to you that you receive fair compensation for your damages. We will work tirelessly to ensure that your case is a success.

Who is at Fault for Malpractice?

Whether a doctor made a mistake because they were inexperienced, or an overworked nurse failed to provide quality care for their patient because the hospital intentionally kept the nursing staff numbers low to make a profit, the hospital will be held accountable by your medical malpractice claim.

  • Doctor Errors—Common mistakes made by doctors include failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, and failure to refer a patient to a specialist.
  • OB/GYN Errors—OB/GYNs are experts in the female reproductive system, and are also responsible for pregnancies and births. Injuries to the mother or baby during pregnancy or delivery can be grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
  • Surgeon Errors—Surgical errors range from nicking a small nerve, causing nerve damage, to leaving behind foreign objects, such as surgical tools, inside patients.
  • Anesthesiologist Errors—An anesthesia error can very well be a life-threatening mistake, as failure to monitor a patient’s vitals during surgery, or giving a patient too much anesthesia medication, can cause brain damage, organ damage, and death.
  • Nurse Errors—While doctors diagnose, nurses actually treat patients hands-on. Their duties include administering medication, tending to wounds, hooking up IVs, and much more. A small lapse in attention, such as failing to update a patient’s chart, can have serious implications.
  • Hospital Administration Errors—Many of the above errors are caused, in part, by the hospital itself. For-profit and nonprofit hospitals, like Einstein, all seek to earn a profit, regardless of their title. Sadly, in order to do this many hospitals are short-staffed, particularly when it comes to nurses. Short staffing and underfunding can lead to unsanitary conditions, overworked staff members, equipment malfunctions, supply shortages, and more.
