Your family doctor is your first line of defense in the fight for good health.   It is often the family doctor’s role to identify more serious underlying conditions and refer you to a specialist when needed.  You might think of your family doctor’s role as primarily to perform routine “check-ups”.  The skill and training that your family doctor puts to work during those routine screenings can, however, have a significant impact on your health.

Proving Family Doctor Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases are almost always more complicated than general personal injury cases.  Doctors make complex decisions based on the information they have and the training they have received.  No two patients are exactly alike—and what may work with one may produce a bad outcome in another.

Under Pennsylvania law, the elements needed to prove family doctor malpractice include:

Proving these elements is rarely simple.  Having a strong family doctor malpractice lawyer by your side is key to holding negligent family doctors accountable.  Our lawyers have been fighting for injured clients across Western Pennsylvania for over 20 years.  We stand by your side every step of the way, regardless of how long it takes to get you the fair compensation you need.

Examples of Family Doctor Malpractice

Although proving family doctor malpractice can be complicated, there are some mistakes that no trained doctor should make.  Family doctor malpractice can happen under a variety of circumstances.  Depending upon the patient’s condition, age, general health and other factors, the following might constitute family doctor malpractice:

Unlike specialists, family doctors must generally be able to analyze a wide range of symptoms.  Their job is to refer you to more specialized doctors for testing and treatment when you exhibit certain troubling symptoms.  Failure to properly recognize and test for those symptoms can cause significant harm.  To learn more about your right to compensation if your family doctor made a mistake, call our experienced malpractice lawyers at Matzus Law LLC today.

Frequently Asked Questions About Family Doctor Malpractice Claims in Pittsburgh, PA

FAQ: My family doctor is not an especially wealthy person. Who will pay compensation for malpractice?

All doctors carry malpractice insurance in some form. Our lawyers will identify all available sources of insurance—which may include the doctor’s own medical malpractice insurance policy or policy maintained by a clinic or hospital where the doctor practices.

FAQ: It took me a long time to realize that my family doctor’s mistake may have made my condition worse. How long do I have to file a claim for family doctor malpractice?

You have two years from the date you reasonably should have discovered that family doctor malpractice was the cause of your harm. There is generally a firm time limit of seven years from the date the mistake occurred. In family doctor malpractice cases, the date when the clock starts running is often a gray area. Most family doctors treat patients on an ongoing basis. Call our lawyers as soon as possible so that we can evaluate your case.
