Causes of Birth Injury in Pennsylvania

In Some cases even the most skilled doctor or nurse could not have prevented a birth injury or condition from occurring. In other cases, however, birth injuries could have been avoided if a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional had provided an acceptable level of care.

Medical Care Mistakes Resulting In Birth Injury

With today’s medical advancements and technology, one would think that birth injuries are a thing of the past. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Medical care is still administered by human beings, and though these people have undergone extensive training and education to become licensed medical professionals, they may make mistakes or act negligently. When they do, innocent children and parents are left to suffer the consequences.

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice:

Q: What is the statute of limitations for Medical Malpractice?

Two years is the general rule, with a couple of important exceptions. One is for minors – for instance, if a child is injured at birth by a doctor or nurse at the hospital, they have until they’re 18 plus two years to file a lawsuit. The other important exception is the ‘discovery rule,’ where, for instance, if you had your appendix taken out and the doctors left an instrument inside of you and you didn’t find it for five years, you’d have two years from the time you discovered it to file a claim.

Q: What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical Malpractice definition: Medical malpractice is an error by a healthcare provider — could be a nurse, doctor, hospital, therapist, whomever. 

Pribanic & Pribanic’s top rated Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Pittsburgh are available to help answer your questions about medical injuries.

Q: How is Medical Malpractice Determined?

Under Pennsylvania medical malpractice laws, medical malpractice is measured by whether or not a physician comports themselves with something called the ‘standard of care.’ The standard of care for the rest of us is whether a healthcare provider has done their job. If they fail to do their job for you and you are hurt then you’ve likely been the victim of medical malpractice.

Q: How often does medical malpractice occur?

Physician negligence is the third leading cause of death in the United States. More than 13,000 doctors nationwide have been disciplined for serious incompetence or misconduct. This includes medical errors involving drug abuse, negligence, substandard patient care, Medicaid fraud and patient sexual abuse. According to a study by Washington Health Group, physicians often continue to treat patients and retain their licenses even after committing malpractice.

“Most doctors are good doctors…”

Medical malpractice laws vary by state as do state confidentiality laws making it nearly impossible to find out the background information on a doctor, even if that doctor has been disciplined for incompetence or negligence. Recent studies confirm that a small percentage of doctors are responsible for the vast majority of injuries caused by substandard care. This reaffirms our general perception that most doctors are good doctors, and worthy of our trust.
