Philadelphia Hospital Negligence Lawyers

Committed to Seeking Compensation for Victims Since 1980 Throughout Pennsylvania & New Jersey

In 2006, Harvard University performed the most comprehensive study ever done on the frequency of medical negligence in the United States. Shockingly, the study revealed that as many as 120,000 people die each year as the result of medical errors committed in hospitals. In fact, of all medical malpractice claims, 97% involved a legitimate medical injury, with 80% of those involving major disability or death. Whether treated in a nursing home, hospital, doctor or dentist’s office, many patients are unaware that the bad result they have experienced may be due to medical negligence.

Doctors and insurance companies have worked hard to make you afraid to see if your rights have been violated during your hospital stay. At Ginsburg & Associates Trial Lawyers, we help Pennsylvania and New Jersey clients find the strength they need to make their hospital negligence claims and confront those that may have seriously injured them or their family members.

Our hospital negligence lawyers in Philadelphia are prepared to help you. Call our offices at (215) 392-6616 to schedule your free consultation today.

What Is Hospital Negligence?

Hospital negligence can lead to serious harm, including debilitating brain injuries, infant injury, paralysis, or chronic disorders. It is every patient’s right to receive adequate care, and lawsuits are meant to protect the public by holding hospitals and medical professionals accountable for negligence.

Our team handles hospital negligence claims of all kinds. Just a few of the cases we have addressed include:

  • Emergency room failing to accurately and promptly treat or diagnose
  • Radiologist not properly reading an x-ray, Ct, MRI or mammogram
  • General practitioner not listening to their patient or investigating complaints
  • Failing to document, reference, or keep track of medical records
  • Overworked hospital or nursing staff failing to react to a patient’s immediate needs
  • Improperly administering the wrong type or dose of medication
  • Using unsterilized or defective equipment
  • Making surgical mistakes, such as incision errors or not removing medical instruments
  • Doctor performing a service outside of their expertise

What’s the Difference Between Medical Malpractice and Medical Negligence?

Health care professionals owe patients a duty of care. That means they must make decisions and carry out treatments that any other prudent professional in their field would in certain situations. When a doctor, physician, nurse, or other medical staff acts outside of the required standard of care, they can be accused of committing medical malpractice. Typically, in a medical malpractice case, the health care professional knew they should have (or should not have done something) but intentionally moved forward with it anyway.

Generally, medical negligence occurs when a health care professional acts without intent, but their carelessness still causes harm to a patient. In a medical negligence case, the doctor might have made a mistake during treatment because they were ignorant of the way a reasonable professional would have acted.

You Deserve Compensation for Your Injuries

Some victims may question whether their hospital negligence claim would be perceived as “frivolous” and if it would hurt the medical field by increasing insurance rates. William Sage of Harvard, (co-author of the Harvard study) stated that “the major problem out there is medical errors that are not compensated, rather than frivolous claims that are compensated.” Suing a hospital for negligence can get you the money you need for damages, and more people suffer serious medical injury without receiving compensation than those who make false claims against hospitals and medical professionals. This is why a team of ethical and experienced Philadelphia hospital negligence lawyers is necessary to adequately assess each case, determine its validity, and decide on a fair compensation amount.

At Ginsburg & Associates Trial Lawyers, we are committed to upholding the quality of medical care by taking swift legal action to seek just compensation for patients and their families for injuries resulting from neglect or inadequate care. We believe that it is only in this way the quality of care for all patients can be improved.
