PA Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

PA Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

If you have been injured, misdiagnosed, or mistreated by a doctor, you may have the right to compensation. Medical malpractice law is intricate and complex, but the right PA medical malpractice litigation team can help get you the justice you deserve.

The steps for filing medical malpractice lawsuits in Pennsylvania are as follows:

  • Filing the claim:Your first step is to file a lawsuit in court. Your complaint will describe the allegations being made against the hospital, doctor, or other healthcare professional.
  • Discovery: After the lawsuit has been filed, your PA medical malpractice attorneys meet with the representatives of the defendant and exchange documentation regarding your case. They also take the depositions of witnesses and expert witnesses.
  • The settlement: If both parties can come to an agreement, there may be a settlement without the need to go to trial.
  • Trial: If a settlement is not reached, the case goes to court. Medical malpractice cases are decided by a jury. If the jury decides that the defendant’s actions were negligent, they must determine fair compensation to you for your loss of income, medical expenses, pain, and suffering.
  • Appeal: Either party has the right to appeal an adverse decision by the jury. Here, an appellate court can overturn an unfavorable verdict, order a new trial, or enter a new verdict.

Hiring attorneys who have dealt with cases similar to your own can help you obtain a PA medical malpractice settlement. However, because each case is different, settlement does not always occur and you will need qualified and trial-experienced attorneys to go to trial with you.
