Frequently Asked Questions about Hospital Negligence in Philadelphia

What is the statute of limitations on hospital negligence lawsuits?

In Philadelphia, the statute of limitations under Pennsylvania law normally gives you two years from the date that you were injured by hospital negligence, or two years from the date that you discovered that you were injured because of a hospital’s negligence. However, if you wait too long to file your lawsuit, your case can be dismissed on the opposing party’s motion and you may lose your right to recover compensation for your injuries and losses.

How do you prove hospital negligence?

To prove a claim for hospital negligence, you will need to show that hospital staff failed to render treatment in accordance with the applicable standard of care. The standard of care is generally defined as the treatment decisions and actions that other providers of similar training and experience would take in identical circumstances. You will also need to show that the hospital’s failure to meet the standard of care caused you to suffer injury or other medical harm, and that because of your injury or harm you incurred financial or personal loss that you can be compensated for. Evidence that you might rely on to prove hospital negligence includes your medical records, physician and nursing notes, surveillance footage, eyewitness statements, and staffing records.
