Medical Malpractice

While many law firms represent victims of medical malpractice, few have been doing so for over fifty years. At Fine and Staud LLC we have been representing victims of medical negligence since 1958. We utilize qualified experts to help us evaluate medical malpractice cases to determine whether the doctors, hospitals or other medical professionals were negligent and did not provide the appropriate medical care. Medical malpractice, also called medical negligence, occurs when a doctor, nurse or other healthcare provider fails to diagnose or treat a medical condition in accordance with acceptable medical standards and the failure or lack of treatment causes an injury or injuries to a patient. Medical mistakes can happen in a hospital or in a doctor's office. These mistakes include misdiagnosing a patient or failing to reach a diagnosis, improperly treating a patient, prescribing the wrong medication or giving the wrong dosage of a medication, failing to provide adequate nursing care and failing to properly treat infections. At Fine and Staud LLC, we have handled a wide range of medical malpractice cases, including:

Birth Injuries
Birth injuries and birth defects can occur for many reasons, including but not limited to, mistakes or mismanagement of a patient's prenatal care or labor and delivery, by nurses, midwives, doctors or other medical professionals. If you or a family member has a potential claim because of a birth injury, you should contact the medical malpractice lawyers at Fine and Staud LLC.

Failure to Diagnose Medical Diseases and Conditions
The failure of a doctor to diagnose a medical disease or condition can cause the condition to worsen and significantly reduce the patient's chances of survival, resulting in unnecessary side effects or even death. It is medical malpractice when a doctor or nurse negligently fails to make a diagnosis, or fails to make an appropriate diagnosis. If you or a family member have suffered injuries because a doctor or other medical professional either failed to diagnose a medical disease or condition, delayed in making the diagnosis or misdiagnosed a medical disease or condition, you may have a claim for medical malpractice and should contact the medical malpractice lawyers at Fine and Staud LLC

Misdiagnosis of Medical Conditions
Diseases and other medical conditions are not always easy to diagnose, and a misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or failure to make any diagnosis are a common basis for medical malpractice cases. At Fine and Staud LLC we have represented patients and their families who have suffered or died when doctors negligently failed to reach a correct diagnosis or delayed in making a diagnosis or misdiagnosed a patient's condition. Fine and Staud LLC attorneys understand that these are among the most complex medical malpractice cases, and investigate these claims and work with qualified experts to prove how and why negligence occurred in reaching a diagnosis. If you or a family member have suffered injuries because of an improper diagnosis, a misdiagnosis, or a delayed diagnosis, you should contact the medical malpractice lawyers at Fine and Staud LLC.

As always, at Fine and Staud LLC clients pay no fees and no costs unless a recovery is made. When you need skilled and aggressive representation in a medical malpractice case, contact the Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers of Fine and Staud LLC at (215) 665-0100.
