Crawford County Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Seasoned Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight to Uphold Patient Rights in Crawford County

Despite the shocking prevalence of medical malpractice in the United States, the fact remains that it can be extremely difficult to recover fair compensation based on the harm you have suffered without the help of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.  The same is true if you have suffered from medical malpractice in Crawford County.

The reason for the strict and specific medical malpractice laws that apply in Pennsylvania is twofold—first, doctors and healthcare providers are not all-knowing, and patients can suffer bad outcomes for any number of reasons, but it remains important that people have access to medical care.  Secondly, if every patient who suffered a bad outcome was permitted to bring a lawsuit for medical malpractice, those who truly suffered at the hands of a negligent medical professional would be less likely to recover compensation in a clogged court system.

What is Medical Malpractice Under Crawford County, Pennsylvania Law?

Medical malpractice in Crawford County occurs when a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional breaches the applicable “standard of care” and so commits medical negligence.  The “standard of care” is a level of care that a prudent healthcare professional with similar training would and should exercise under the circumstances at hand. Essentially, this means that, to establish that malpractice has occurred, we must also establish that the medical professional’s actions were unreasonable under the circumstances—or so unacceptable as to be shocking.

Often, this requires a full analysis of the injured patient’s medical records, as well as consultation with respected medical specialists, to determine both the applicable standard of care in the case and whether the healthcare professional violated that standard and caused the harm suffered by the patient.

Circumstances Under Which Medical Malpractice May Occur in Crawford County

Medical malpractice can arise based upon any number of circumstances, and we frequently handle cases involving:

  • Surgical malpractice, such as the performance of wrong-site surgery or unnecessary surgeries,

  • Laboratories where tests are analyzed,
