Experts must certify medical malpractice claims prior to filing

Doctors in Pennsylvania must go through many years of school and training prior to being licensed. This is important because they must take care of many complicated medical matters that can have a major impact on patients' lives. People may understand what a doctor told them about their illness or injury, but most people do not understand how to perform a procedure or why a certain medication is prescribed. Therefore, people need to trust that the doctors know what they are doing.

Car crashes are very common in Pennsylvania

Having a vehicle in Pennsylvania can be very convenient, and sometimes may seem like a necessity. Driving is a daily activity for many people and is generally a safe way to get where people need to go, but from time to time it can be dangerous.

So, sometimes car accidents occur and people can suffer catastrophic injuries as a result.

Holding medical professionals accountable for their negligence

Doctors in Pennsylvania have to go through many years of school and training before they can be certified and allowed to practice. This is because they have very important jobs, which has a big effect on people's health and their lives. Sometimes they need to perform highly technical and dangerous procedures to help people. Other times they may need to perform a routine surgery or procedure, but in either case if the procedure is done incorrectly, it could have very serious consequences for the victim.

Why fault for a crash is not always clear cut

Say that you are the passenger in a vehicle, and the driver reaches over to change radio stations, veering off the road slightly. Afterward, the driver looks up to see a pole immediately ahead and crashes into it. The fault seems fairly apparent: It is the driver's fault and no one else's. Right?
