Unfortunately, medical malpractice can happen to anyone. Recent studies have shown that more than 200,000 people die every year because of preventable medical mistakes. Compared with the 40,000 people who die in car accidents annually, malpractice is obviously a significant problem in the United States.
A medical error can lead to permanent and serious injuries, disability and pain. One of the only ways to hold a health care provider accountable for a negligent medical error is through a medical malpractice case. In addition to "accountability", medical negligence cases frequently result in important changes in policies and procedures which can help prevent the same mistakes from happening again to another patient.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death because of negligence or improper medical care by a doctor or hospital, call Dorian, Goldstein, Wisniewski & Orchinik, P.C., at 215-809-3882.

For over three decades, our attorneys have represented clients in Northeast Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and all surrounding Pennsylvania counties for serious injuries, death and losses resulting from medical malpractice, and closely related nursing home negligence. These are just a few types of the malpractice cases we handle:
- Failure to diagnose medical conditions

We all place our trust in medical professionals, hospitals and nursing homes, but they are not beyond reproach. Sometimes even well-qualified and well-intentioned health care professionals fail to do the job they are required to do, and patients suffer needlessly.
Malpractice cases help keep the health care industry accountable for its mistakes and frequently result in improvements in the overall quality of health care.
