- Failure to Diagnose
If you suffered serious consequences from failure to diagnose a serious health threat in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, you may take legal action through filing a medical malpractice personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Talk to an experienced attorney at Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman today to discuss your case in a free initial consultation. In many cases, failure to diagnose can be caused by health professionals simply not listening to patients. By not taking symptoms seriously, doctors miss important information and often fail to perform necessary tests and diagnostic studies.
- Nurse Malpractice
When a nurse fails to provide patient care which is standard practice for their position, or they intentionally alter records to cover up a mistake, an RN negligence attorney at our firm offers the resources to meticulously investigate the incident. By interviewing witnesses and consulting with experts in nursing and medicine, we will determine all relevant actions or inactions related to a claim of nurse malpractice.
- Psychiatrist Malpractice
Psychiatrists have a high standard of duty to provide mental health care to their patients without taking advantage of their vulnerable state. Unfortunately, some psychiatrists do just the opposite. They suggest and carry out radical treatment methods, plant false memories, and may even enter into sexual relations with their patients. For an action to be considered true malpractice, a psychiatric doctor must have acted in violation of the standard duty of care. These actions must have caused some form of emotional or physical harm.
- Patients' Rights
Health care providers are required to discuss the treatment they will provide for you and all benefits and risks associated with moving forward or refusing to treat an illness or condition. This is informed consent. You have the right to safe health services delivered in a considerate and respectful manner free from restraint or imposed seclusion for the purposes of abuse or harassment. You also have the right to expect notification if errors or mistakes happen. When health care providers fail to protect your patient rights, our Philadelphia medical accident lawyers are here to help you hold them accountable.
- Elder Care Abuse
We often find that elder care abuse is a result of negligent hiring. Nursing homes and home health care agencies may fail to do adequate background checks on employees hired to care for the elderly. Nursing assistants with long histories of criminal activity or drug abuse are sometimes allowed into the elder care system. This can lead to instances of negligent nursing home care. Our Philadelphia nursing home abuse lawyers have extensive experience uncovering the causes of elder neglect.
