Jury awards man $1.5 million in medical malpractice suit

An out-of-state jury recently returned a $1.5 million verdict in a medical malpractice lawsuit. An out-of-state carpenter as well as his wife were the plaintiffs. The man’s health was severely affected after a resident working at an medical center failed to properly diagnose him. When medical malpractice like this occurs, Pennsylvania residents are entitled to file a claim for damages against the party or parties believed to have acted or performed their duties negligently.
