Philadelphia medical malpractice attorney Jeffrey Harlan Penneys, Esq. represents victims of a healthcare professional’s failure to provide the expected standard of care to a patient; meaning that a healthcare provider must use the same degree of skill and learning, under the same or similar circumstances, that are used by other members of the medical profession.

Determining if you have a potential legal case for medical negligence is difficult, at best. One criteria that Jeffrey H. Penneys, Esq. uses to determine if you may have a claim would be an unexpected or very different result from a surgery or medical treatment than intended.
Additionally, death or severe injury that occurs as a result of “routine” treatments or surgeries where the physician or doctor can give no reasonable explanation for the death or worsened condition of the patient, may give cause for a medical malpractice lawyer to make a case that medical malpractice has occurred.
If Jeffrey H. Penneys, Esq. is able prove your case and the medical provider is found negligent, then you are entitled to recover damages; damages intended to help you return to the condition you were in prior to the injury. Call 1-800InjuryLaw (1-800-465-8795) now to discuss the potential of damages recovery.

Healthcare professionals are only required to give a standard of care that is ordinary or normal. A physician can be negligent in a variety of ways. Medical malpractice occurs through failure or errors in timely diagnosis, ordering appropriate treatment, ordering necessary tests and proper medication, consulting with specialists, and surgical procedures, among other things.
It is an medical negligence attorney’s obligation to determine as quickly and efficiently as possible whether there is a good, actionable case. Pennsylvania medical malpractice cases are by their very nature complex, expensive to pursue, have a high risk of no recovery, and often involve an attachment by the client.
Did you Know that you still have legal rights even if you signed a consent form?
A consent form does not give the health care provider a license to commit malpractice. While the execution of a typical consent form indicates acknowledgement of stated risks and complications associated with a given treatment or procedure, it does not relieve the health care provider from his or her duty of meeting the standard of care associated with such treatment or procedure.
In Pennsylvania, medical malpractice actions must be commenced within two years of the act or omission giving rise to the injury, or within two years of the date of discovery. Click here for more Philadelphia medical malpractice attorney questions.
