If you cannot trust what your family doctor or surgeon tells you, then who can you trust? The fact is, most doctors and surgeons do an incredible job with their patients. Sometimes, though, a Pittsburgh doctor makes a mistake out of negligence or out of a gross disregard for standard medical procedure. If that mistake results in a serious injury, then medical malpractice may have occurred.
At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., we know exactly what to look for in a potential medical malpractice case to determine if malpractice has occurred. If a valid claim for medical negligence or malpractice exists, then we will help our client to aggressively pursue financial relief relating to his or her injuries. In the event that the medical malpractice resulted in death, then we will help family members of the deceased to pursue wrongful death claims in court.
Medical negligence can happen under a wide variety of circumstances. The most common types of claims we take on at Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., include claims relating to surgical errors, emergency room errors and faulty medical equipment. We also commonly handle claims for delayed or incorrect diagnoses, birth injuries and spinal cord injuries. Brain injuries, amputations and anesthesia disorders resulting from medical errors are also part of our focus.
Pittsburgh residents who contact our firm relating to a medical malpractice case will consult with our attorneys free of charge. If it is determined that you have a viable claim for us to pursue, then you will be offered a contingency fee agreement. What that means is that you will not be required to pay any monies in attorneys fees unless -- and only if -- we obtain a financial recovery on your behalf.
