Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Medical malpractice, simply put, occurs when your medical provider deviates from the normal standard of care, resulting in injury to you.

Medical providers are required to exercise reasonable care in accordance with the standards of care for the profession involved. But it doesn't always happen. Standards of responsible care are not met. Egregious errors occur because providers are in a hurry, are distracted, or just not competent.

Philadelphia County Hospital Negligence Attorneys

The law says this: that if a doctor, surgeon, hospital or other medical provider acts, or fails to act, in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care, then that provider may be held liable for damages.

Though the majority of health care providers do good work, mistakes are sometimes made that cause harm to patients, as well as their families and supportive friends, that lasts the rest of their lives.

At Aversa & Linn, our lawyers represent individuals and their families from southeastern Pennsylvania and adjoining areas whose medical provider has breached the standard of care in diagnosing or treating medical conditions.
