Pittsburgh Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Get serious about getting compensated
We trust our doctors, nurses and other health-care providers to heal us and make us well. When medical professionals are negligent, however, the consequences can be devastating. If you’ve been hurt as a result of medical malpractice, you deserve financial compensation. The experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Romanow Law Group are ready to fight for you.
Medical professionals provide some of the most essential services in the community, but sometimes, due to lack of staffing, exhausting hours and increased demands from the insurance carriers, even professionals with the best intentions make mistakes that harm their patients. Others are simply poorly trained, negligent or reckless in their work.

Medical malpractice occurs when a health-care provider renders treatment that falls below standards that are considered acceptable in the medical community. Malpractice can have debilitating effects on you or your loved ones, including serious injury or death, but recovering compensation can be very complicated.
Pennsylvania medical malpractice laws are vast and complex. In addition, negligent medical professionals often don’t admit to doing anything wrong. Insurance companies will fight your claim because they know there’s a lot of money at stake. and they have lawyers that work to protect their interests.
That’s why you need an experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive medical malpractice lawyer on your side. A medical negligence claim is vastly different from a general negligence claim (the type of claim most personal injury lawyers handle). These are big cases that deal with complicated medical issues.
