Medical Malpractice FAQ

Q: What is a medical malpractice claim?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider such as a doctor or a nurse does not follow the appropriate “standard of care” when treating their patient. The right “standard of care” depends on the medical procedure that the patient needs as well as factors such as a patient’s:

  • Age
  • Medical condition
  • Weight
  • Medications
  • Alcohol/drug use
  • Past injuries
  • Other risk factors
  • Overall health

Essentially, it all boils down to the answer of the question: “how would a reasonable, careful healthcare professional care for this patient?” When a doctor fails to treat a patient according to that standard of care, medical malpractice has occurred. When that failure causes the patient to suffer injuries or physical damage, there is a medical malpractice claim.

Q: I think my doctor may have been negligent, but I am not sure. What should I do?

If you have reason to believe that you may have received inadequate medical treatment you should contact an experienced medical malpractice lawyer right away. A good attorney will investigate your case to determine whether you are a victim of medical malpractice by asking you about you:

  • Medical history
  • Symptoms
  • Procedures
  • Medications
  • Diagnosis
  • Prognosis
  • Injuries
  • The ways that you have suffered or continue to suffer.

You should gather all medical bills and treatment instructions, as these documents will be helpful clues to your lawyer about your case. This investigation takes a lot of work, but Munley Law, the consultation is always free!

Q: How long do I have to file my medical negligence case?

In Pennsylvania, medical malpractice victims must file their claims within two years. This may sound like a long time, but the sooner you contact an experienced lawyer, the more time they will have to build a strong case. Your lawyer will want as much time as possible to interview you, read through your medical records, request and gather missing documents, communicate with your insurance company, conduct an investigation, retain medical experts, and try and negotiate your case.

Q: How can I prevent injuries caused by my doctor’s medical malpractice in the future?

As a patient, the best way to prevent medical malpractice is to be an active and involved advocate for yourself. Always bring a notepad and a pen to appointments. Take notes on what your medical team is telling you are the problems and solutions. Write down your questions and anything you don’t fully understand. Don’t be afraid to ask for answers or clarifications. Bring along a family member who can also listen, ask questions, and help you remember everything that was said at the appointment. Ask for your diagnosis and care instructions in writing and make sure you have a safe place where you are keeping all records. If something does not feel right, speak up. Tell your doctor if you are in pain or you know something is wrong. Keep track of your symptoms and note when they began. Get a second opinion before making a big decision such as whether to have an elective surgery or begin an experimental course of treatment. The more knowledgable and involved you are in your own medical care, the more likely you and your doctors are to catch and prevent mistakes.

    First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly , I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement !
