John Perkosky

When looking at Pennsylvania malpractice law, medical malpractice happens when a physician or other healthcare worker is involved in medical negligence. Medical negligence happens when the healthcare worker breaches, or violates, the standard of care.

The standard of care in any Pittsburgh, PA medical field is the commonly accepted medical practices followed by a collection of medical professionals in the same geographic region for patients having suffered from a specific disorder or illness. This standard can change depending on several things, such as the patient’s preceding medical history and also the age of the patient may come into consideration.

On top of the act of medical negligence occurring, in order to have a medical malpractice claim the negligent act needs to have directly caused the patient’s injuries. Proving medical malpractice can be a very complex journey and requires a Pittsburgh medical malpractice team of lawyers such as ours with both the experience and knowledge to call upon and work with medical expert witnesses in order to build the strongest case that will get the victim the compensation deserved. The Pittsburgh medical malpractice attorneys at The Firm are not afraid to fight for you in court, so many large Pittsburgh medical malpractice law firms settle far too early to move the case along.
