Most lawyers regard medical malpractice litigation as the most demanding of personal injury claims. The facts are complicated and highly technical. The defense is motivated not only to limit your financial recovery, but to deny liability altogether. Additionally, Pennsylvania law requires that each medical malpractice claim be supported by a qualified expert's certificate of merit. In other words, you need a medical professional to vouch for the merits of your claim before the lawsuit is even filed.

We Are Proven Trial Lawyers Who Know How To Get Results

Our law firm is up to these challenges. We commit significant time and resources to the evaluation of potential medical negligence claims. By the time we're ready to accept a case, our attorneys will have a working understanding of the facts that indicate negligence and liability, together with a qualified expert's opinion showing just how the defendant's acts or omissions violated a recognized standard of care.

We'll also know how to use evidence that draws the crucial causal link between a physician's negligence and the patient's injuries or death. The plaintiff's burden of proof on causation issues is often the biggest legal problem presented in a medical malpractice case.

Our medical negligence practice is selective, but we work closely with prospective clients even before we reach a decision about the merits of your case. If we don't accept it, we'll give you a full explanation of our legal and medical findings. If we do take your case, you can depend on us to do everything possible to achieve justice and full compensation for you and your family.
