Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Due to tort reform instigated by lobbyists representing the insurance industry and the medical profession, a preliminary finding of negligence on the part of a doctor is required before a medical malpractice suit can proceed forward. The law office of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman, sponsor of MyPhillyLawyer.com, assembles a team of experienced medical experts and investigators in evaluating the evidence involved in our clients' cases. We prepare documents and expert witness statements in establishing the existence of negligence in connection with our client's injuries in order to proceed to trial. Our Philadelphia medical malpractice attorneys also consult economists and life care planners in determining the financial impact of medical malpractice for our client and their family.

What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?
Doctors are expected to follow standard treatment protocols when diagnosing and treating various forms of illness. In the face of certain symptoms or pathologies, physicians should conduct certain kinds of diagnostic tests or administer specific kinds of treatment. A failure to follow standard treatment protocols in the presence of telltale signs of illness or disease can result in liability for any injuries or fatalities that occur as a result.
At the law office of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman, our medical malpractice lawsuit attorneys work with medical experts in reviewing medical charts, video footage of births and operations, actions of hospital staff, and medication regimens in order to identify negligence on the part of doctors. We look at timelines in order to identify when tests should have been run and when treatment should have been initiated.
