Fighting to Hold Negligent Medical Providers Accountable

doctor on the phone looking upsetWhen a trusted doctor, nurse, or medical provider fails to provide the level of care we expect, the consequences can be devastating. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider does not provide a patient with the accepted standard of care, meaning they failed to do what another qualified provider could have reasonably been expected to do in regards to treatment and/or care. Victims who are injured, suffer complications, or fall ill as a result of substandard medical care are entitled to seek justice by filing medical malpractice claims.

At Fellerman & Ciarimboli Law PC, we have been representing injured Pennsylvanians since 2000, recovering more than $110 million on behalf of our clients. Our Philadelphia medical malpractice attorneys can help you stand up to negligent medical providers and fight to hold them accountable for the pain, suffering, and harm they cause.

If you believe you or a loved one is the victim of medical malpractice, reach out to Fellerman & Ciarimboli Law PC online or by calling (877) 989-4878 to learn how we can help.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

It’s important to make a distinction between a poor outcome and medical malpractice. Just because a doctor or medical provider is unable to achieve the outcome you wanted, this does not mean that he or she has committed malpractice. Rather, medical malpractice is the act of providing substandard medical care, meaning the provider in question did not meet the industry’s acceptable standard of care.

Essentially, if a medical provider does not take all necessary actions that another competent medical professional would have taken, the original medical provider has acted negligently. If the patient then suffers a poor outcome, such as a new injury or worsened condition, the patient and/or his loved ones (if the medical malpractice leads to wrongful death) can file a claim.

Examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to treat
  • Delayed treatment
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication mistakes
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Hospital/emergency room negligence
  • Birth injuries

These and other examples of medical malpractice can have serious consequences. In the most tragic of cases, patients may die as a result of a doctor or nurse’s failure to uphold the standard duty of care. At Fellerman & Ciarimboli Law PC, we can help you seek justice and the fair compensation you deserve.

What Are the Chances of Winning a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

When it comes to winning your medical malpractice suit, the odds tend to be in favor of the physician responsible for the malpractice. This is why it's so important to hire a top-notch malpractice attorney to represent you.

How Do You Prove Medical Malpractice?

In order to prove that your injuries were a result of medical malpractice, you will need to demonstrate the following:

  1. What standard of care your doctor was expected to provide - This can be backed up by expert witness testimony
  2. How your doctor failed to uphold that standard of care - Again, this can be shown through expert witness testimony from another experienced medical professional
  3. That their breach of this standard resulted in your injuries - This can be proved via witness testimony, as well as medical documentation
  4. That your injuries resulted in serious financial or emotional damages

Why You Need a Medical Malpractice Attorney

Proving a medical malpractice claim is often an incredibly difficult and complex task. To make matters worse, hospitals and other medical facilities often do everything they can to protect their employees and staff and will likely argue that the provider in question did everything possible to properly treat the patient. Medical insurance providers also fiercely defend these claims, knowing that payouts are often high.

It is crucial to the outcome of your case that you do not attempt to take on doctors, hospitals, or their insurance companies on your own. Instead, put one of our skilled and proven Philadelphia medical malpractice attorneys on your side. We can work with medical experts and other specialists in order to uncover what happened and establish liability for your damages. We always work to maximize our clients’ claims, fighting for the compensation they need for both current losses and future damages.
