Our clients are often going through challenging times in life, coping with a debilitating injury or the injury or death of a loved one.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
If you are living with an injury or illness after substandard care or negligence by a healthcare professional, Frischman & Rizza can provide a free consultation to discuss your situation. Our trustworthy team of personal injury attorneys has remarkable success on our clients’ behalf, and we would like to facilitate the care you need.
Our clients work with one of our partners personally, not a junior lawyer, on the following types of medical malpractice cases:
Examples of these circumstances include oxygen deprivation, failure to order a necessary C-section, failure to identify fetal distress, and failure to control bleeding during birth.
Catastrophic effects come from commonly misdiagnosed conditions, including heart attack and cancer. A missed diagnosis could prolong suffering, limit care options, or even be fatal. A misdiagnosis could also devastate health and cause a burden for your family.
As surgical errors arise from a doctor or nurse during a procedure, the consequence is typically an additional procedure or string of new procedures, each carrying additional risks associated with surgery. Common surgical errors seen in medical malpractice claims include:
- performing surgery on the wrong body part,
- infection from improperly sanitized equipment, and
- surgical instruments left inside the body.
Failure to Treat
Failure to treat malpractice lawsuits comes after the medical professional diagnoses a condition or injury without providing proper care. People should be able to expect top-quality care from a highly trained physician, and anything less could lead to severe injury or even lifelong consequences. Our Lancaster personal injury attorneys see plenty of these types of cases and can share what we have learned in the process.
Prescription Drug Errors
The incorrect prescription amount or type of medication leads to serious injury. Prescription drug error cases in medical malpractice also include prescribing medication that the patient is allergic to or interacts negatively with other medicines they are currently taking.
Medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the United States, behind heart disease and cancer. If medical malpractice has derailed your healing in Lancaster County, Frischman & Rizza will build a case on your behalf.
