Pittsburgh Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Holding Doctors and Hospitals Accountable

Every medical procedure includes risks. However, some medical errors are preventable if doctors and other medical personnel live up to professional standards of care. Studies by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) show that preventable medical errors are a national scandal.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to medical negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for malpractice. I’m Mike George, a personal injury lawyer with more than 20 years of experience, and I help people like you obtain the money damages they legally deserve. Contact me to get an experienced Pittsburgh medical malpractice attorney working on your case.

Broad Medical Malpractice Experience

If you have suffered a heart attack, stroke or pulmonary embolism; a spinal cord injury; a neurological injury such as paralysis; or any other injury due to medical malpractice, I may be able to help you win compensation. I am experienced at helping the victims of many types of medical malpractice, including but not limited to:

  • Failure to diagnose (including failure to diagnose cancer)
  • Surgical errors (including gastric bypass surgery)
  • Birth injuries (including cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy)
  • Anesthesia-related injuries
  • Emergency room errors
  • Radiology errors
  • Hospital and nursing errors
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Nursing home negligence

Under Pennsylvania’s new medical malpractice law, it will be necessary — assuming we cannot show that your injuries were intentionally committed — to have your case reviewed by a medical expert who will certify that the facts of the case demonstrate medical malpractice. There is a time limit on this process, so we may need to move quickly.

Contact me for a free initial consultation about your case. If I determine that you have a valid claim for medical malpractice compensation, I will accept your case on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you will owe no fees unless you get money damages.
