Doctors go through years of schooling and practice before being able to perform the procedures and surgeries in their given field. Unfortunately, sometimes mistakes are made and patients end up paying for it in the long run, sometimes for the rest of their lives. With this in mind, the SMBB law group, Philadelphia malpractice lawyers, are now available for lawsuits against medical malpractice in New Jersey.
“First, do no harm” is the first rule of medicine. But unfortunately, an estimated 100,000 die as a result of medical malpractice. Many of these victims and their families don’t know or realize that something has gone terribly wrong and that they deserve to be compensated for the mistakes that have ended or impeded on a family members life, especially things that could have been avoided if proper procedure and precautions would have been taken by the practicing doctor.
The personal injury lawyers in Philadelphia at SMBB have had great success with cases where medical malpractice has occurred. They have taken on cases in the following areas:
*Late diagnosis of cancers, including breast cancer, serious heart conditions, and other significant illnesses
*Birth trauma injuries or death to either the new born child or the mother in pregnancy
*Fungal Meningitis Outbreaks.
Just in the past decade, SMBB has settled for over $200 million when it comes to medical malpractice cases for their clients in Pennsylvania. Due to the publicity that can come with a malpractice lawsuit many doctors and hospitals want to avoid the negativity that can come along with such lawsuits and usually agree to undisclosed settlements. If anyone has any questions regarding medical malpractice contact SMBB for a free consultation immediately.
