Most Pennsylvania residents are not doctors, and have very limited medical knowledge. People trust in doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals to provide the medical care they need when they are not feeling right. Doctors are trained to work under immense pressure to solve medical issues quickly for the individuals who need them. However, sometimes doctors fail to live up to the standard. They fail to take in all the facts, skip steps or simply misdiagnose individuals.
There are many different types of injuries that a doctor can cause. In some cases, surgical errors can affect the rest of a Pennsylvanian's life. Or, a birth injury can significantly alter the prognosis of a child's life before it has even been started.
On the other hand, a misdiagnosis can leave a patient with a worsened medical condition. When individuals turn to a doctor they expect that they will be treated effectively. Instead, they are sent away with a false sense of hope and are ultimately betrayed. Hospital policies and emergency room errors can also lead to a variety of serious injuries.
In any case, individuals who are affected by the negligence of a medical professional need to understand their legal rights.
