Doctors take an oath to "first, do no harm." If you are reading this page, chances are that this oath has been badly violated.
But it isn't only doctors that can do harm: Nurses, radiologists and other medical professionals often make mistakes as well — with equally harmful consequences.
At Dorian, Goldstein, Wisniewski & Orchinik, P.C., in Bensalem, we are dedicated to holding medical professionals and health care systems accountable for the injuries that their negligence inflicts on patients. If you or someone in your family has been injured, we encourage you to talk with us in a free initial consultation.
What Caused Your Injury?
Many different types of actions (or inactions) can be medical malpractice. Our law firm handles a full range of cases, including those involving:
- Failure to diagnose — Failure to detect cancer can be a death sentence. Diagnostic failures for other conditions can also be very serious.
- Birth injuries — When there is fetal distress, failure to perform a timely C-section can result in severe injuries. Negligent medical care can also result in other types of birth injuries.
- Surgical errors — Some hospitals have been trying to do a better job of preventing surgical mistakes by using checklists. But was a checklist used in your case?
