Elderly residents in Pennsylvania tend to be the ones who visit their doctors the most. With increased visits to hospitals, however, comes the increased risk of becoming the victim of medical malpractice. Fortunately, those who suffer injury from doctor error and/or the families of those who are killed can seek justice by filing a civil suit in court. While the results of such a case are never guaranteed, financial restitution and other types of restitution can be obtained when such a claim is successfully navigated.
Pennsylvania state regulators are still having an issue with the Trexler Park Manor nursing home. First, the problem involved a bedbug infestation.

However, there are specific requirements that one must satisfy before qualifying to receive such benefits. After reviewing these requirements and their own specific situation, individuals with medical issues can evaluate their potential for receiving them.
