When you or a loved one is sick or injured, you rely on the licensed medical professionals and institutions involved to find out what is wrong and help you get better. You trust them and expect that you will be treated safely and competently. In most cases, everything works out. However, sometimes things go wrong.
Medical malpractice statistics show that thousands of injuries and deaths are caused each year by negligence, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and medication errors on the part of medical professionals in the treatment and care rendered to the patient. Health care providers are required to meet certain standards of care, and Pennsylvania law states that a provider who fails to meet these standards may be held financially liable for injuries that result.
Malpractice claims are often very complex, and it is critical to seek the counsel of an experienced medical malpractice attorney with access to the medical experts and specialists who can help navigate your case. Attorney Jonathan S. Comitz has extensive experience in medical malpractice, including cases involving:
- Missed Diagnosis and Failure to Diagnose
- Birth Injuries
- Informed Consent
- Misread MRI, Mammogram, X–ray, Other Medical Imaging
and he is dedicated to helping you obtain the compensation you deserve from the parties at fault.
