Common Forms of Medical Malpractice or Negligence That Occur in Pittsburgh, PA Hospitals
There are a variety of types of medical negligence that occur that can lead to a medical malpractice claim. It’s important to remember that not all negative outcomes in a hospital will definitely lead to a medical malpractice claim.

Here are some of the common events that can occur that can lead to medical malpractice:
- Improper reading of a test
- Anesthesia medication errors
- Improper medication prescribed
- Birth injury malpractice
- Failure to diagnose patient’s issue quickly enough
