Pittsburgh Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical malpractice claims occur as a result of actions by a doctor, nurse or other medical professional who improperly treats a patient, or fails to diagnose a medical condition. This improper treatment or diagnosis must result in an injury or damage to the patient that would not have occurred had the malpractice not taken place. The practice of medicine is complex, and involves risk. Just because a poor result occurs does not mean that malpractice has been committed. However, if injury or damage occurs because of errors that are outside the standard of medical care, we will investigate to determine whether medical malpractice has occurred. A victim of malpractice may sue to recover for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other expenses.
We put a great deal of trust in doctors and other medical professionals to competently treat our illnesses and injuries. When that trust is violated, it can have profound repercussions. At the Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz, Mr. Vatz has helped many people who have suffered injuries as the result of medical malpractice and negligence in hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities.
Mel Vatz will investigate the facts of the situation and assess whether medical malpractice took place. We will provide an honest assessment of your case, and if we believe that malpractice did occur, we will put our decades of experience and legal knowledge to work to pursue compensation for resulting medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.
