Make you case matter. Talk to an attorney at our law firm
Philadelphia medical malpractice attorney Michael Hanamirian understands the complexity of such cases. That’s because he has more than three decades of experience handling a wide range of medical malpractice cases throughout the Philadelphia area. That’s why we want to meet with you as soon as possible at The Hanamirian Firm, PC.
It’s important to talk to a lawyer right away for many reasons if you believe you sustained a personal injury due to a mistake made by a medical professional. In Pennsylvania, you only have two years to take legal action for medical malpractice. That two-year deadline – known as the statute of limitations – starts from the date when you discovered your injury. Two years might seem like a long time. But the longer you wait, the harder it often becomes to find the facts you need to build a strong legal case.
What are common medical malpractice cases?
Medical malpractice is a legal term used to describe injuries caused by mistakes made by medical professionals. In general, medical malpractice often involves negligence or unnecessary risks taken by doctors, surgeons, nurses or other medical professionals.
More specifically, medical malpractice can cover a wide range of cases. Some of the most common medical malpractice cases we handle at our law firm include:
- Misdiagnosis of disease or illness
- Delay of diagnosis
- Delay of treatment
- Unsanitary conditions, resulting in hospital infection
- Failure to perform routine medical tests
- Surgical errors
- Medication errors
- Prescribing wrong medication
- Birth injury
Whatever type of medical malpractice case you or your family is dealing with, we want to meet with you and explain all your available legal options. We’re here to help you get your life back on track.
