When Surgical Errors Happen, We Hold Medical Professionals Accountable
Surgical errors, as with most medical malpractice claims, can be difficult to establish. Generally, there must be some corroborating expert testimony in order to show that the doctor or surgeon who performed the surgery was negligent or made an error or mistake that breached the standard of care. Typically, this can only be done by reviewing the records involved.
At Joyce & Bittner, our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined legal experience. We can thoroughly review the records of your treatment in search of information that will bolster your claim that a doctor or surgeon acted negligently. We also enlist respected medical experts to review, build and strengthen our clients’ claims.
If you or a loved one suffered harm because of surgical errors, the law office of Joyce & Bittner would provide the thorough, tenacious representation you need to pursue just compensation. Call 412-557-7931 or contact our Pittsburgh law firm online to schedule a free consultation.
Preserving The Evidence Necessary To Build Your Case
You can’t win a medical malpractice lawsuit unless you have solid proof that medical malpractice occurred. We will conduct a thorough review of your medical records and enlist the services of other doctors and medical professionals to determine whether or not your doctor or surgeon made a mistake or otherwise departed from acceptable medical practices.
Unfortunately, hospital records can be lost or misplaced or not readily produced. However, our attorneys will work to gain the access needed to locate the crucial records – and then preserve them. We work thoroughly and promptly to help ensure that no evidence is lost.
