Medical malpractice is not uncommon in Pennsylvania, and many patients suffer at the hands of negligent health care providers every year. If you believe your client has become a victim of medical or dental malpractice, you may choose to seek compensation for their injuries and suffering. But, before you can sue the physician or dentist in question, you need evidence to prove your allegations. JD.MD can provide you with reliable case evaluations, medical expert witness and dental expert witness services.
Medical Malpractice in Pennsylvania
Many cases of medical malpractice are reported every year in Pennsylvania. While some of them can be attributed to accidents, the majority are due to substandard care or negligent health care providers. The Pennsylvania malpractice law allows an injured patient to seek three main types of damages: actual costs (such as medical bills and lost wages), non-economic damages (for pain and suffering), and punitive damages (to punish negligent physicians and dentists). There is no cap on the first two types of damages.
