Wexford, PA Medical Malpractice Attorney

Franklin Park Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Lawyer in Allegheny County for Victims of Medical Negligence

The greater Pittsburgh area is home to some of the most prestigious healthcare systems in the nation. Individuals from around the world seek care at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) hospitals, Allegheny Health Network facilities, and other independent medical centers. While many patients receive the treatment they need without any unexpected problems, the reality is that medical errors are more common than most people realize. In fact, medical mistakes are now considered the third leading cause of death in the United States, trailing only cancer and heart disease.

At Colianni & Leonard LLC, we respect and admire the dedication that most medical professionals show their patients on a daily basis. However, we also believe that when a medical mistake occurs due to professional negligence, the doctor or facility in question must be held accountable.

Identifying Medical Errors in Western Pennsylvania

Some victims of medical errors may not be aware of the mistakes for several weeks or even months after the fact. The complexity of modern medicine combined with the uncertainty of a person's health can make it difficult to determine if an error was actually made. In other cases, a medical mistake may be evident immediately, and the patient may suffer severely as a result. Both situations can leave victims and their families feeling angry, betrayed, and confused about what to do next.

Attorney Vincent Colianni is a skilled medical malpractice attorney with more than 20 years of legal experience. He understands that not every medical mistake is the result of negligence or malpractice, but those that are caused by negligence or substandard care must be addressed quickly.

At our firm, we help clients who have suffered harm related to:

  • Birth injuries and labor-related injuries;
  • Misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, and delayed diagnosis;
  • Surgical errors;
  • Laboratory errors;
  • Medication errors, including anesthesia-related errors; and
  • Defective medical devices.

Helping Victims Seek Maximum Compensation

Doctors and hospitals almost never acknowledge responsibility for a medical mistake, and most are advised by their insurance carriers and attorneys to never admit fault. This means that proving medical negligence is rarely an easy task, but the team at Colianni & Leonard LLC is equipped to help you with your case. We maintain a large network of renowned medical experts to assist us in investigating the circumstances of your injury.

It is important to remember that a medical mistake does not need to be fatal or catastrophic to be considered malpractice. An error that seems relatively minor at first could affect the rest of your life in unexpected ways. In cases like these, victims may only realize the true extent of the problem after it is too late to take legal action. If you have suffered any type of illness or injury as the result of a medical mistake, we will help you explore your available options.
