Who could be held accountable for medical malpractice injury?

Doctors, hospitals and related third-parties in Pittsburgh are tasked with the responsibility of caring for our well-being, and treating or preventing our injuries and illnesses. These medical professionals and facilities owe a duty of care to their patients. While not all medical issues can be cured or completely remedied, a level of care and responsibility is expected of these parties. An inability to perform at a certain level can cause unnecessary injury to the patient.

Truck accident injuries could be due to negligence

We have all read the headlines, and possibly have even driven by the carnage on the side of the road in Pennsylvania. Occasionally, car rides do not go as planned and car accidents or even truck accidents occur that result in serious injuries for the occupants of those vehicles. It's true that sometimes accidents happen and that's why everyone is supposed to have some level of insurance to cover the losses of others or potentially losses you or your family members have suffered. However, your own insurance may not be enough in most cases, especially if the other driver or related third party was negligent for the truck accident.

American Airlines passenger suffers brain injury on flight

Whether they are heading to a vacation destination or taking the red-eye for business travel, most people in Pennsylvania who take a flight do so without incident.

Two injured in Pennsylvania motorcycle accident

Pennsylvanians may have noticed more motorcycles on the road now that summer is here. It is a popular hobby, and many motorcyclists take advantage of the warmer weather to ride their bikes, whether it is on a scenic drive or merely going to and from work. However, an increase in motorcycles on the road may mean that motorists must be extra-vigilant not to cause a motorcycle accident.

Pennsylvania man loses testicle in wrong-site surgery

A 54-year-old man from Pennsylvania recently won a lawsuit for almost $900,000, after his surgeon removed the wrong part of his body. The man experienced chronic testicular pain for 15 years in his right testicle. Although, the man later believed less invasive options were possible, his doctor suggested performing an operation to remove the man's right testicle. However, the doctor mistakenly removed the man's left testicle instead.

Medical malpractice at issue in in vitro fertilization

In vitro fertilization helps Pennsylvania couples become parents. However, it is still a medical procedure and mistakes occur. When deciding on a fertility clinic, couples can only compare success rates. This can make it difficult to determine whether a clinic is safe. And, regulations and oversight by professional organizations are lacking.

Holding drunk drivers in Pennsylvania accountable

Pennsylvania may have strict laws against drunk driving, but unfortunately there are always those who will disregard not only the law, but the safety of others, and drive drunk. This also means that no matter how safe you drive, you could still be involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver. The aftermath of such accidents can be devastating.
