Understanding Medical Malpractice And What It Takes To Win A Successful Lawsuit

Handling claims for Scranton, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding communities.

Minor medical mistakes by doctors and health care professionals occur every day. After all, they are human and make mistakes like us all.

However, they have a duty to patients and if the mistake rises to a level that is not typical of the profession and that mistake is so material that it causes injury or death to a patient, they are liable under the theory of medical malpractice.

When this occurs, legal recourse options are available to compensate the victims and their families.

However, medical malpractice lawsuits are extremely complex and should only be handled by an experienced lawyer who has handled such matters successfully in the past.

At Haggerty Hinton & Cosgrove LLP, victims can rest assured that we have the experience and knowledge to help.
