Pennsylvania & New Jersey Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Medical malpractice is a far larger problem than most patients realize—patients daily suffer injury or death in our nation's hospitals and at the hands of highly paid and respected doctors. At Lehman Pastino, our medical malpractice attorneys are committed to holding medical professionals responsible for their mistakes. Our firm provides our lawyers with everything they need to successfully resolve these complex and challenging cases.

If you are concerned that your injury or another person's was the result of medical negligence, please contact our West Chester, PA office. We consider no question foolish, and we assure you that you will be treated with respect when you call. Our staff doctors and medical malpractice attorneys will analyze the situation and find the answers you are looking for. Regardless of whether you have a meritorious claim, we want to help you find peace of mind.

For the past fifteen years our lawyers have been assisted by full-time, in-house medical doctors and nurses. In some cases our doctors have found evidence in medical records of errors our clients never suspected. Preventable errors may include:

  • A doctor's failure to diagnose cancer, heart disease, stroke, infection, or another condition
  • An obstetrician's improper delay in performing a c-section or other error that results in tragic birth injury to a fetus, newborn, or mother
  • Surgical accidents
  • Errors resulting in brain injury
  • Hospital-acquired infections
  • Nursing home negligence and abuse
  • Injuries or death caused by improperly performed gastric bypass/bariatric surgery
  • A radiologist's misinterpretation of an x-ray, mammogram, CT Scan or an MRI scan; or a pathologist's misinterpretation of a pap smear
  • Misdiagnosis leading to a failure to treat or delay in treating cancer or another condition
  • Diagnosis and treatment of the wrong condition (we have had clients who underwent unnecessary mastectomies and prostate operations)
  • Anesthesia errors, including improperly managed airways
  • Medication errors, for example, a nurse administering the wrong medication or a pharmacist dispensing the wrong drug
  • A surgeon's failure to adequately explain the risks of a given procedure

An allegation of medical malpractice is a very serious matter. At Lehman & Pastino our medical malpractice attorneys subject thousands of cases a year to an intensive screening process and pursue only those involving preventable errors. When our lawyers do accept a case, our firm offers a level of support unique to western Pennsylvania.

Medical errors that cause serious injury entitle victims to money damages. If you believe improprieties occurred during a visit with a healthcare provider or if you have unanswered questions about treatment a loved one received, it is important to have your case reviewed by an experience medical malpractice attorney.
