A: In most hospital malpractice cases, it is not immediately clear whether a hospital committed negligence. Most patients have a sense that something is wrong, but are unable to get confirmation from their doctors. In order to get a definitive answer as to whether a hospital committed negligence, the patient should consult with a qualified hospital malpractice lawyer in Pennsylvania.
A medical malpractice lawyer will review all relevant medical records and then review the case with a medical expert. The medical expert would then offer a professional opinion as to whether the hospital committed malpractice or not. Such medical expert opinions are required under Pennsylvania law, in order to bring a malpractice claim against any medical professional and/or hospital.
