If your child was injured as a result of failure to diagnose or properly manage a childhood illness or condition, you may want to protect your child's rights and ensure that your child's medical costs, long term care costs and future security are protected. Your child may be entitled to compensation and we'd like to help.
There is nothing that prepares a parent for serious injury or illness to a child. Facing the challenge of such a circumstance may be made more difficult by the suspicion that your child's condition could have been avoided, or the harm minimized, but for a medical error.
Fear and anger may dominate your perspective but soon you will want answers. Was there an error? Could this have been avoided? Might my child have had a better chance had the trained professionals done their job properly?
You will probably find that answers to these questions will not be forthcoming. The cases themselves are complicated and, without expert guidance, you are not likely to find answers on your own. Your doctor and the hospital may not be willing to give you clear and complete answers.
If your child suffered a serious injury or disability as a result of a medical error, then your child may be entitled to help: help that will offset the loss associated with disability; help that will ensure adequate medical care in the long term; help that will start to make up for what has been lost. The Erie medical malpractice lawyers at Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. use their experience and resources to investigate the case; bring reputable experts to review the case materials and analyze your child's care; and get you the answers you need and the help the law says your child is entitled to receive.

Call the Erie medical malpractice lawyers at Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. for a free consultation. Remember that time is always important in personal injury cases. However, Pennsylvania law allows children more time than adults. Children are not required to file a lawsuit until sometime prior to their 20th birthday. We don't recommend waiting. Evidence is too often lost or destroyed in the passage of time. But if that time has already passed, don't give up. So long as your child's 20th birthday has not arrived, the Pennsylvania pediatric malpractice lawyers at Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. will investigate and uncover evidence necessary to get you the answers you deserve.
