Philadelphia and Delaware Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical malpractice occurs when a licensed medical professional fails to provide his or her patient with adequate medical treatment, resulting in personal injury and oftentimes a loss of life.
When you become ill or sustain an injury that requires you to seek medical treatment with a physician, you are generally confident that your physician’s education, experience and training enables him or her to provide you with the medical treatment you need. Unfortunately, this is not always true.
Physicians are human beings like you and I, and are susceptible to errors. Too often, medical professionals deviate from the standard of care required to provide adequate medical treatment, and as a result, their patient sustains significant injuries and damages, and in some instances, death.
