Nursing Error Lawyers Pittsburgh, PA

Skilled Pittsburgh PA Lawyers Fight to Protect the Rights of Victims Injured by Nursing Errors

Nurses are often on the front line of healthcare, providing the most direct care to patients. Nurses are responsible for administering medications, monitoring patients’ conditions, and providing basic care and support during a patient’s recovery. However, if a nurse commits an error in the treatment of a patient, it can have disastrous, even life-threatening consequences.  As a result, nurses are held to the same high standards of care as other health care providers. When a patient is injured due to the negligence of his or her nurses, we believe that those nurses and their employer should be held financially responsible for the patient’s injuries through a medical malpractice claim; we believe that this sends a sign to the healthcare industry that it will be held accountable for errors committed in nursing care.

Goodrich & Geist, P.C. Help Clients Obtain Compensation for Injuries and Damages Caused by Nursing Errors

Pursuing a legal claim for a nursing error is a complicated, time-intensive effort. This is because not every error committed by a nurse is not necessarily a compensable legal claim. Instead, a patient is only entitled to compensation if the nurse’s error falls below the standard of care — often defined as the conduct and treatment that another reasonably prudent nurse of similar training and experience would provide under the same circumstances in the same community — and if the patient suffers some sort of compensable harm. 

At Goodrich & Geist, P.C. we can help you obtain compensation by thoroughly investigating your claim and working with medical and nursing experts to find the evidence needed to prove that your nurse’s conduct fell below the applicable standard of care. We will negotiate with the hospitals and insurance companies to try to obtain a full and fair settlement for you. If necessary, we are prepared to aggressively advocate for you in court and will do everything we can to obtain a verdict and judgment in your favor.
