The different forms of medical malpractice

When gaining any type of medical service, you have the right to expect a certain level of professionalism and responsibility. When you put your health and safety in the hands of another person, they have a duty to be competent and to act to the best of their ability.

If you have had a bad experience when seeking medical attention in Pennsylvania, you may be able to gain compensation by making a medical malpractice claim. The following are some of the most common forms of medical malpractice.

Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis

If you are suffering a range of unpleasant symptoms, you will likely visit your doctor and expect a diagnosis. For many conditions, gaining an early diagnosis can increase the chances of a successful treatment, and it will reduce the amount of suffering that the patient has to go through. If a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis is due to negligence or incompetence, you may be able to gain compensation for this.


Medical records must be kept confidential. If you learn that your medical records have been shared with other parties, you may be able to file a claim for invasion of privacy or make a medical malpractice claim.

Hospital negligence

Hospital staff should provide patients with a high standard of care. If cleanliness is not maintained in the hospital, or if you are neglected or mistreated by staff, you may be able to make a medical malpractice claim against the hospital.

If you believe that you have suffered unnecessarily due to poor health care, you should stand up for your rights and consider filing a medical malpractice claim so that compensation can be gained.
