State Supreme Court to rule on witness testimony

Most people in Pennsylvania know that there may be risks associated with a given medical treatment, medication or procedure but they may often need to pursue those things in order to take care of a problem bigger than the risk they deem to be present. Working with their doctors and other medical professionals in making this choice can be helpful for them. It is also important to know that simply because a risk exists, a patient should not expect to experience that particular outcome.

How do I afford to hire an attorney?

People face injustice every day. You have surely encountered a situation where you had to pay for another person's negligence, or somebody else's mistakes inconvenienced you. On a small scale, such instances may not have a life-altering impact, but on a bigger scale, they can easily derail your life and leave you struggling to pick up the pieces. This is certainly true when an injury of any kind is involved.

Dauphin County sees jump in traffic fatalities

If you are concerned about your safety and the safety of your friends and family members on the road in Pennsylvania, you are not alone.

Child among nine hurt when SUV hit emergency vehicle

Residents of Pennsylvania know that when they hear the sirens or see the flashing lights of an emergency vehicle, they should pull over and stop until they know that vehicle has safely passed them if that needed to happen.

Along with those emotions often also come a lot of questions. If you are facing this type of situation, you should know that it is your right to ask as many questions as you like of your doctor. In fact, it is also your right to ask questions of another doctor. 

Tacks used in surgery at center of medical malpractice lawsuit

Claims of medical malpractice leveled against doctors in Harrisburg often come down to issues regarding the accepted standard of care. Patients may argue that their doctors deviated from it; doctors may counter that they did nothing wrong and that their work was justified. It may be true that no medical procedure is offered with a "money back guarantee," yet most patients assume that by following the recommendations of their doctors, they will achieve the outcomes they are hoping for (while avoiding complications at the same time). If poor outcomes are believed to the fault of a doctor's methods, it may be easy to see why those affected by them want to pursue legal recourse
