Early diagnosis of breast cancer

Each year, approximately 50,000 women die from breast cancer, the leading cause of death among women. As with many cancers, the early diagnosis of this disease significantly improves a woman's chance for survival. In fact, early diagnosis can lead to cure. Because obstetrician-gynecologists are in a favorable position to diagnose this disease, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has developed guidelines for early diagnosis.

Medical malpractice that is hidden from public view.

Proponents of reforming the system for litigating medical malpractice case constantly harp about "frivolous lawsuits." Physicians and the insurance industry would like the public to believe that very few of the medical malpractice cases filed are, in fact, meritorious. This myth lives in Pennsylvania because many victims of medical negligence cannot discuss their cases. Why? Because most meritorious medical malpractices are settled rather than tried and victims who settle their lawsuits and their lawyers must agree not to publicize anything about their cases, including the settlements.

Who best protects the common man--big business or trial lawyers?

Innocent people regularly suffer grievous injures because of the negligence of others. Those innocent victims can obtain compensation for their injuries by resort to our civil justice system. The civil justice system is all too often the only way to hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions. For some time, however, wrongdoers have used lobbyists and public relations campaigns in an attempt to limit an innocent victim's access to the courts by claiming that a "crisis" exists in the civil litigation system in general and with medical malpractice in particular. Compelling evidence shows that the claims of a "crisis" are simply not true.
