Philadelphia Hospital Negligence Lawyers

Committed to Securing Compensation for Victims Since 1980

Harvard University performed the most comprehensive study ever done on the frequency of medical negligence in the United States in 2006. 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 percent involved a legitimate medical injury, with 80 percent 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 the 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 that they need to make their hospital negligence claims and confront those that may have seriously injured you or your family member.

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 or 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 failure to accurately and promptly treat or diagnose
  • A radiologist does not properly read an x-ray, Ct, MRI or mammogram
  • A general practitioner doesn’t listen to the patient or investigate the complaints
  • Failure to document, reference or keep track of medical records
  • Hospital or nursing staff is too overworked to react to a patient’s immediate need
  • Improperly administering wrong type or dose of medication
  • Using unsterilized or defective equipment
  • Surgical errors, such as incision errors or not removing medical instruments
  • A doctor performs a service outside of his or her expertise.

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 recovery and it is a fact that more people suffer serious medical injury without receiving compensation than there are people 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 to determine validity and amount of fair compensation. At Ginsburg & Associates Trial Lawyers, we are committed to upholding the quality of medical care by taking swift legal action to compensate patients and their families for injuries resulting from neglect or inadequate care. We believe that it is only in this way that the quality of care for all patients can be assured.
