Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Bucks County
It is without question a nightmare scenario: you or a loved one are placed in the care of a medical professional for what is thought to be a routine operation with an easy recovery time. Perhaps it was even a joyous event, such as the birth of a child. But something goes terribly wrong, and adding to the devastating blow is a possibility that this wrongdoing might have been caused by the physician that you entrusted your life with. For over twenty years, the Bucks County Medical Malpractice Lawyers at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. have dedicated themselves to guiding clients through this unimaginable time. Our trial lawyers routinely undertake some of the most complex cases in the Pennsylvania area.
We all rely on our doctors to help us when we are sick or injured. In almost all cases, our doctors provide us with the treatment and advice that we need to recover. There are some cases, however, when our doctors do not fulfill their duties, and we do not receive the necessary care that we need to achieve recovery. When a doctor neglects their duty to provide you with the care you need, you may be entitled to damages due to medical malpractice.
Bucks County Medical Malpractice Lawyer
The specifics of Medical Malpractice vary by state and country, but in general, it may be defined as when a healthcare provider goes against the commonly accepted practices within the medical profession, either intentionally or unintentionally, and thereby causes injury or death to their patient. Only in cases where injuries or death are the direct results of the negligent action is there a valid argument for malpractice. When this is the case, the patient (or in the case of death, the administrator of the deceased’s estate) is entitled to compensatory and/or punitive damages.
If you feel that your or a loved one’s medical care has directly caused your condition to worsen, please call us today to speak with one of our Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Attorneys, and set up a free consultation.
