Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice

We understand that you may have questions about medical malpractice and your rights. Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers to help you better understand the process:

Q: What is medical malpractice? A: Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, deviates from the accepted standard of care, causing injury or harm to a patient.

Q: How can I prove medical malpractice? A: To prove medical malpractice, you must establish the following elements:

  1. Duty: The healthcare provider owed you a duty of care. This is typically established by proving the existence of a doctor-patient relationship.

  2. Breach: The healthcare provider breached their duty by failing to provide the standard of care expected from a reasonably competent professional in a similar situation.

  3. Causation: The healthcare provider's breach of duty directly caused your injury or harm.

  4. Damages: You suffered damages, such as physical injury, emotional distress, or financial loss, as a result of the healthcare provider's negligence.

Q: How long do I have to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in Philadelphia? A: In Pennsylvania, you generally have two years from the date of the injury to file a medical malpractice claim. There are some exceptions to this rule, such as the discovery rule or cases involving minors, which may extend the time frame.

Q: What damages can I recover in a medical malpractice case? A: Damages in medical malpractice cases may include:

  1. Economic damages: Medical expenses (past and future), lost wages, and loss of earning capacity.

  2. Non-economic damages: Pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium.

  3. Punitive damages: These damages are awarded in cases involving extreme negligence or malicious intent to punish the defendant and deter future misconduct. Punitive damages are relatively rare in medical malpractice cases.

Q: Do I need a medical expert for my case? A: In most medical malpractice cases, you will need an expert witness to testify about the standard of care, how the defendant deviated from it, and how that deviation directly caused your injuries. Our attorneys at The Town Law LLC have a network of medical experts to assist in building a strong case on your behalf.
