Philadelphia Med Mal & Birth Injury Lawyer / Penn Presbyterian Medical Center Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Penn Presbyterian Medical Center Medical Malpractice Lawyer

If you were a patient at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and had the extreme misfortune of being treated by a negligent doctor or medical team, we are here for you. It does not matter that the surgeon was fatigued, the doctor was inexperienced, or a nurse was being overworked; there is no excuse for anything less than acceptable medical care in our society. All healthcare providers are legally required to meet a high standard of care when treating patients, and failure to do so can result in a medical malpractice claim. Our Penn Presbyterian Medical Center medical malpractice lawyer at The Villari Firm, PLLC is in your corner from day one until you receive the compensation that your damages deserve.

What is Considered Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when there is a relationship between a healthcare provider and a patient (a duty exists) and the duty is breached by the healthcare provider practicing medicine outside of the standard of care. The standard of care is a legal term used to describe the accepted form of treatment required to manage/diagnose a certain condition. The last element of medical malpractice is when that breach causes harm to the patient. Examples of negligence that meets that bar of medical malpractice might include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Negligent wound care and management
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth errors
  • OB/GYN negligence during pregnancy
  • Infections, sepsis, and septic shock
  • Aortic dissection errors
  • Amputations
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Blood transfusion errors
  • Burn injuries
  • Laboratory errors
  • Medication & pharmaceutical errors
  • Radiology errors
  • Slip and falls (negligent nursing)

Signs that May Indicate that Medical Malpractice Occurred

As a patient without legal or medical knowledge, how do you know if you were the victim of medical malpractice? After all, it is not as if your doctor or a hospital administrator will come forward and admit to fault. Here are a few signs that medical malpractice may have been present in your case:

  • Your doctor did not inform you about the procedure or treatment before they began
  • Your outcome was significantly worse than what was described to you
  • Your doctor consistently failed to communicate with you
  • Medical equipment and medical materials seemed in short supply
  • It felt like nurses were short-staffed
  • You were left unattended, and in pain and discomfort, for long periods of time
  • The hospital seemed unclean or unsanitary
  • There seemed to be poor communication between various healthcare providers
  • You went into the hospital with symptoms A and B, and came out with new/additional symptoms
  • Treatment of your condition seemed overkill
  • Your condition did not improve after being treated
