What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is the failure to adequately diagnose or treat a patient. When that failure results in injury to the patient, such as when a doctor assumes that a condition is harmless and thus fails to order tests that would have revealed a life-threatening condition in time to save the patient, or when the wrong medication is ordered or provided to a patient and the patient subsequently dies or is injured, the patient or their survivors are entitled to recover compensation for harms and losses.

The Investigation of Your Pennsylvania Medical Negligence Case Is Critical

Some medical mistakes are obvious, like wrong site surgeries where the surgeon is supposed to amputate the left leg but instead amputates the right leg. Most medical malpractice cases, however, require thorough investigation and analysis of complex medical issues.

Indeed, determining what happened and why is often the main reason that clients come to us. Doctors and hospitals are often reluctant to share the truth with families after a medical error. Medical records frequently do not reveal the complete truth. We conduct a vigorous investigation to collect available evidence and then we use the best experts and specialists to review your case, determine what happened and why, and develop the best legal options for you.

It is not just our thorough investigation and analysis strategies that set us apart. We have a unique combination of legal experience that benefits our clients. Prior to 2006, Eric Purchase represented one of the region’s largest hospitals and defended cases involving complex medical issues. Between 2008 and 2010, Mr. Purchase also served as one of the only independent, volunteer community members on St. Vincent Health Center’s Institutional Review Board (also known as an independent ethics committee) and worked to protect the rights and well-being of patients involved in experimental studies. Now Mr. Purchase actively represents injured people and their families in cases against Pennsylvania hospitals and physicians who negligently caused harm. Additionally, Tim George is a former prosecutor and military lawyer who understands the ins and outs of the courtroom and who knows how to prepare PA medical malpractice cases for trial.

This experience distinguishes attorneys Purchase, George, and Murphey among Erie medical malpractice lawyers and will help them to represent you in your medical malpractice case.
