The Challenges Of Dealing With A Medical Injury

Medical malpractice cases are difficult for attorneys. Many are even hesitant to take them on, as they require a great deal of preparation, medical knowledge and legal acumen. However, thousands of individuals suffer injuries and complications each year as the result of medical negligence. A law firm with the necessary resources and willpower to pursue these cases can help those seeking compensation for the costs and recovery associated with medical errors.

At Scanlon & Wojton, we aim to provide this service across Pittsburgh and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Working with medical professionals, we analyze each case and its merits, and we will relentlessly pursue the compensation you may be entitled to, whether through settlement or jury trial.

Trial Experience With A Compassionate Approach

We work with clients across a wide variety of medical negligence cases, including those involving:

  • Failure to diagnose, including erroneous or delayed diagnoses of cancer and other ailments and misdiagnosis of life-threatening conditions, as well as diagnoses that lead to harmful treatment
  • Surgical malpractice such as surgery errors, performing the incorrect procedure, anesthesia errors, postoperative negligence or unnecessary surgery
  • Birth injuries, whether due to failure to notice an infant in distress or use of excessive force resulting in brain damage, cerebral palsy or other significant injuries that occur as a result of medical negligence during pregnancy, labor or delivery
  • Medication errors, including prescribing the wrong drug, resulting in overdose or other damage
  • General hospital negligence, including misinterpreting X-rays and other tests

Our lawyers understand the difficulty of dealing with these situations, as they almost always have a profound effect on a client's life. We prioritize our clients' quality of life, and we will work relentlessly in pursuit of compensation that will allow you and your loved ones the financial ability to deal with the repercussions of medical malpractice.
