Experienced Medford Medical Malpractice Lawyers and Attorneys

Medical providers have a responsibility to treat patients with the utmost professionalism and ethical healthcare practice possible. Patients place their faith and trust in doctors, nurses and hospitals to provide them with a superior level of care, but unfortunately, there are times in which a medical professional’s services result in the harm of a patient instead of their recovery. When the treatment provided by healthcare professionals falls below the acceptable standard established in the medical community, tragic results may ensue, forever changing the lives of not only the victim, but their loved ones as well.

Any time a medical professional or hospital commits an act of negligence that results in complications with a patient’s treatment, adverse reaction to a medication or death, they may be found guilty of medical malpractice and we are here to ensure you and your family obtain the justice you deserve. The Law Offices of Louis Podel in Philadelphia are here to help you obtain compensation for your pain and suffering following a severe personal injury or wrongful death experienced at the hands of a negligent medical provider.

Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyer Louis Podel has been representing the rights of patients and family members who have been subjected to subpar medical treatment, human error or the omission of proper healthcare resulting in personal injury, disability or death.  Although patients that are ill or have been injured turn to medical providers to get better, the number of medical malpractice incidents that occur each year are shocking.

Statistics show that approximately 195,000 patients in the United States are killed every year because of medical errors committed by practitioners or hospitals.  Yet, only as many as 19,000 medical malpractice and hospital negligence lawsuits are brought against healthcare providers each year.  Hospital costs associated with medical errors were estimated at $324 million in October 2008 alone, and only continue to rise with each passing year. It is imperative that anyone who has suffered a health complication, illness, limb loss, or the wrongful death of a loved one due to medical negligence understand that they do not have to suffer alone.
