Medical malpractice is a type of negligence, either by omission or act, by a health care provider. There is an accepted standard of practice that is agreed upon within the medical community, and though not every injury or death that occurs within the scope of medical treatment constitutes this type of negligence, in far too many cases medical error or a lack of attention to detail is to blame. If you believe that you have been the victim of this type of malpractice, then the Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers at Bochetto & Lentz have the experience and expertise that you need to make sure that your case is handled properly and that you get the best possible outcome.
Though medical malpractice is not the fault of the patient, they often end up having to pay enormous medical bills that far exceed the costs that would have been incurred had they been treated appropriately. Medical malpractice can create additional injury or allow an illness or condition to advance further, requiring additional professional treatment at great expense. In addition to the financial concerns, these patients also end up enduring tremendous pain and suffering.
There are many different types of medical malpractice. These include:
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose

- Medical procedure errors
