Car accidents kill approximately 1.3 million Americans each year. Did you know that medical mistakes kill even more?
Medical malpractice has reached epidemic levels in this country, but it’s not something you hear about all that often. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., just behind cancer and heart disease. So why aren’t more people aware of this silent, sinister killer? Pharmaceutical companies and hospitals are wealthy and powerful corporations. They have every reason to keep you from knowing just how often they make grave errors. And, far too often, doctors fail to speak up when they make a mistake.
At LawMD, our medical malpractice lawyers stand up to big hospitals and big pharma. We take on the tough cases no one else will touch, and we advocate for people who have been told they’re just imagining things or simply trying to get attention. We also challenge doctors to explain their treatment decisions and their failure to abide by the accepted standard of care. If you have been injured due to a doctor’s mistake, a hospital’s negligence, or an error on the part of a health care professional or institution, we are confident that we can help you.
LawMD is a nationally recognized law firm, known for taking on some of the biggest hospital systems (and their insurance providers) in the country. Many of our attorneys are also physicians, giving us rich insight into these challenging and complex cases.
Whether you have lost a loved one due to a medical error or you have suffered a life-changing injury because a doctor acted negligently, our lawyers can help you work to get the compensation you deserve.
Each case is different, but you can generally seek compensation for:
In the most devastating medical malpractice cases, a grieving family must cope with the loss of a beloved father, mother, or another loved one. In such cases, these families may be able to recover funeral expenses and other compensation.
Money can’t replace what you have lost—not by a long shot. It can’t restore your health or bring back a loved one. However, compensation can help ease your financial burdens, giving you the time and resources you need to focus on doing whatever you can to reclaim your life or move on after a loved one has passed.
Understandably, people who have been harmed by a doctor’s negligence or a hospital’s mistake want to know what they can expect in their medical malpractice case. At LawMD, many of our trial lawyers are also a doctors. We put our combination of medical and legal knowledge to work for you.
Doctors are trained to practice good bedside manner by listening to their patients and addressing their concerns. Our lawyers use this same approach in the cases we take on. We start by explaining the steps involved in your case, so you’re never left wondering what comes next.
In general, the medical malpractice process in Pennsylvania involves the following:
Medicine is a huge industry. There are dozens of medical specialties for every kind of medical condition. There are just as many medicine-related subspecialties, such as pharmacology, physical therapy, nursing, and more. Every medical professional is held to a certain standard of care. When a patient is harmed due to a lapse in the applicable standard of care, medical professionals must be held responsible for their actions. When human lives are at stake, mistakes simply aren’t acceptable.
Our attorneys handle a full range of medical malpractice cases. Some of our most notable successes have involved cases featuring:

The law in Pennsylvania limits the amount of time in which you have to bring a medical malpractice claim. There are, however, exceptions to the general rule, so don’t assume that your claim is barred. For example, if you did not discover a doctor’s mistake until recently, you may still be able to file a claim. Our lawyers can evaluate your case to determine if you are still within the statute of limitations.
