Butler Medical Malpractice Lawyer
More than 100,000 people die every year due to medical mistakes that should have been preventable. Far too many of these medical negligence deaths occur at hospitals in Pennsylvania, including medical facilities in Butler, PA. This is particularly shocking because PA lawmakers have taken measures in recent years to hold negligent doctors, surgeons, and nurses accountable for mistakes. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to identify the cause of a hospital-related illness, injury, or death. For instance, it might not be immediately apparent to a patient when a doctor misdiagnoses their cancer, or when an obstetrician fails to follow proper procedure during a child delivery. The end result is that many victims of medical negligence never report the incident. The best way to protect yourself and to ensure that a negligent medical care provider is not allowed to continue wreaking havoc is to speak with an experienced Butler medical malpractice lawyer.
