For the past fifteen years our lawyers have been assisted by full-time, in-house medical doctors and nurses. In some cases our doctors have found evidence in medical records of errors our clients never suspected. Preventable errors may include:

  • A doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer, heart disease, stroke, infection, or another condition
  • An obstetrician’s improper delay in performing a c-section or other error that results in tragic birth injury to a fetus, newborn, or mother
  • Surgical accidents
  • Errors resulting in brain injury
  • Hospital-acquired infections
  • Nursing home negligence and abuse
  • Injuries or death caused by improperly performed gastric bypass/bariatric surgery

If you believe improprieties occurred during a visit with a healthcare provider or if you have unanswered questions about treatment a loved one received, it is important to have your case reviewed by an experience medical malpractice attorney.

If you are concerned that your injury or another person’s was the result of medical negligence, please contact our West Chester, PA office.  Regardless of whether you have a meritorious claim, we want to help you find peace of mind.

Client Reviews

Lehman and Pastino represented me in my auto accident suit… I received PERSONAL attention from Lehman and Pastino…they travelled with me to my doctor’s appointments, completed all my paperwork, and clearly explained all my options. They treated me like a PERSON, not just a client. Their knowledge of the law was precise and “on the money.” I would recommend them for all of anyone’s legal needs.
