Medical malpractice from negligent doctors

Medical Negligence Attorneys

Medical science has not solved every mystery with respect to the human body. Not every illness or condition has a cure. Not every problem can be fixed. Not every outcome can be predicted.

But it is also true that doctors and other licensed health care professionals are human and sometimes make mistakes.

At Schiffman Firm, we work to protect our clients’ rights and hold physicians and other health care providers accountable for substandard care and careless mistakes that have injured our clients. We represent people throughout western Pennsylvania and have obtained substantial six-figure and seven-figure results in many medical malpractice cases.

Common examples of medical negligence or medical malpractice include:

  • Hospital negligence
  • Surgical errors
  • Nursing medication errors
  • Obstetric malpractice (birth injuries)
  • Misdiagnosis / diagnostic errors including failure to diagnose cancer, heart conditions, or other diseases
  • Anesthesiologist errors
  • Pharmacy/pharmacist malpractice
  • Emergency room errors
  • Mistreatment of a disease or condition
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Neglect cases leading to bedsores, death, or other injuries involving nursing homes or hospitals

Our medical malpractice lawyers are committed to maximizing the amount of financial compensation you receive for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other losses. In many cases, this requires expert testimony. As a firm, we take the time and effort to get the right experts for each case. Our medical malpractice attorneys understand the importance of being sensitive toward our clients in these difficult cases.

Dental Malpractice

Dental care-related injuries can result in permanent pain, numbness, disfigurement, and even death. We accept cases involving improper tooth extractions, nerve injuries, fractured jaws, undiagnosed or inadequately treated conditions such as periodontal disease or cancer, root canal mistakes, defective implants, crowns, bridges and veneers, and infections caused by dental malpractice.
