Medical Malpractice

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.

“They stayed right with me the whole time”

I always knew what they were doing. They stayed right with me the whole time. They don't make you feel like they're the lawyers and you're the client. They're not pretentious. They asked all about my family. They're more than just lawyers. They're really good people.
