Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Wilkes-Barre

Protecting the Victims of Medical Negligence

Receiving medical treatment can be a relief for someone who has been living with a health condition for a long time or has been confronted with an emergency medical situation. Quality medical care can make a huge difference in a person’s health, wellbeing, and quality of life. We hold doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals to the standard of being able to make this positive change in their patient’s lives.

In some cases, medical professionals do not provide the level of care that their patient needs. This can leave a person without treatment for their condition, can cause their condition to worsen, or can result in additional injury. This type of negligence is classified as medical malpractice. Victims of medical malpractice are entitled to compensation for their injuries. If you or a loved one was injured and you believe medical malpractice was the cause, contact Fellerman & Ciarimboli Law PC to speak with our medical malpractice lawyers in Wilkes-Barre.

We are available to discuss the details of your case during a free consultation — call (877) 989-4878 or send us a message today.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice cases may include any instance in which a doctor or other medical professional fails to provide a patient with proper care. Patients are owed a “duty of care” or “standard of care” when receiving medical treatment. This concept describes doctors’ responsibility to do whatever they can to treat a patient. When they do not meet this level of care due to negligence, patients can be injured. Medical malpractice claims allow victims of negligence to receive compensation for their injuries.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

Malpractice can occur at any point of a patient receiving medical treatment. From diagnosing a patient’s condition, to treatment, and aftercare, a medical professional’s error in fulfilling their responsibilities can negatively impact a patient’s health.

Some common types of medical malpractice cases include:

  • Surgical errors

  • Emergency room errors

  • Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis

  • Anesthesia errors

  • Testing errors

  • Birth injuries

Who is Liable for Medical Malpractice?

In many cases, medical malpractice is the fault of negligent doctors and nurses. This may be due to general carelessness, or due to more intense reasons like being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Often, the negligence of medical professionals is due to widespread negligence in a hospital, clinic, or other healthcare organization. The administration of a medical institution may be held liable for damages in addition to negligent individuals if they failed to hire competent employees, did not properly train their employees, did not oversee their employees’ actions or correct any issues, or did not provide the necessary equipment. The people who make decisions about how a hospital is run have as much of a responsibility to create a safe environment for patients as the people who work there.

Medical malpractice may also be the fault of negligent third parties. Medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical businesses, and testing companies are examples of third parties who can cause a patient to receive lower quality care and be injured as a result.

    I have a friend who sought help from Fellerman & Ciarimboli and said they were very nice and helpful. So when I needed assistance, they were the first ones I thought of, and gave them a call.
