Sometimes a medical procedure results in a tragic outcome despite the best efforts of doctors and hospitals. In these cases, there is nothing the legal system can do to help you. However, if your injury was caused by the failure of the health professional to follow the standard of care, you may be entitled to compensation for everything you have lost.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a health professional, the attorneys at Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and explain your options. With offices in Harrisburg and Enola, we represent victims of medical malpractice throughout central Pennsylvania.
The following are examples of the types of cases we handle:
- Birth injuries: Negligence on the part of the obstetrician or any member of the delivery team can lead to serious and permanent medical problems for a newborn. Our lawyers review each birth injury case with outstanding medical specialists to see whether the evidence leads to a conclusion of negligence or departure from a recognized standard of care before, during and after delivery.
- Diagnosis errors: Unreasonable errors in diagnosis or avoidable delays in reaching the correct diagnosis can result in death or disability for the patient. Whether your problem resulted from misdiagnosis of a serious medical condition or a delayed diagnosis that came too late to allow for effective treatment, our law firm can evaluate your case and advise you accordingly.
- Hospital negligence: Sometimes, we find that a serious or fatal mistake was committed by a nurse or hospital technician rather than a physician. In those situations, the main defendant in your malpractice lawsuit is likely to be the hospital or clinic itself.
- Surgical errors: Our lawyers represent people with medical malpractice claims for surgical negligence such as wrong site surgery, objects left by mistake in the patient's body, anesthesia errors, damage to vital organs, and negligent postoperative care.
We never charge our clients a fee until and unless our lawyers are successful in obtaining compensation for them.
