Even good doctors make mistakes. Recent studies have shown that roughly 18% of hospital patients sustain injuries due to medical errors each year and many patients simply do not know if the injury or condition they or a loved one has sustained is due to medical negligence.
Medical malpractice occurs when a physician or other medical professional commits a medical error that directly results in a patient’s injury or death. These errors can include misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, incorrect prescriptions, surgical mistakes or hospital infections.
The Pennsylvania statute of limitations gives victims of medical malpractice two years to file suit from the time of the incident OR when they know, or should have known they have been injured from medical negligence.
