What is a medical malpractice claim?
Like any professionals, doctors and healthcare providers make mistakes. When those errors are caused by negligence, however, you could have grounds for a medical malpractice claim.

We have cultivated professional relationships with some of the finest medical and legal experts in the field, and we will put our vast network of resources to work for you.
We also know that not all acts of medical malpractice are committed at hospitals or by general practitioners. Specialists like dentists and chiropractors can be held liable for the injuries they cause; so can midwives or doulas whose negligence leads to birth injuries.

Does KBG Injury Law handle Social Security Disability claims?

In many cases, we are able to obtain the insurance policy limits. We are always ready to try your case before a jury.
Our Lancaster personal injury lawyers demand compensation for the following:
- Medical bills. These expenses include your ambulance costs, ER care, surgeries and hospital stays, time with your doctors and specialists, all the therapy and rehabilitation you need, medications, and the cost of assistive devices.
- Wage losses. We demand payment for all your past financial losses and any income loss you may reasonably have in the future.
- Pain and suffering. Pain and suffering are non-economic damages, but it is still an important part of any claim. Lancaster accident victims can seek compensation for their physical and emotional trauma.
- Scarring and disfigurement. Victims can seek damages for the unsightliness of a permanent scar as well as additional damages if a facial scar or any other type of scar causes the victim to require psychological care or to suffer emotional harm due to their condition.
- Loss of consortium. This sum is payable because your relationship with your spouse (including intimacy) is affected by the accident.
- Property damage. We seek compensation to pay to fix or replace your car – depending on how much it cost to repair your vehicle.
- Funeral and burial expenses (when applicable). If your loved one died as a result of an accident or succumbed to injuries or an illness related to someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to funeral and burial expenses.
If the defendant’s behavior was especially reckless, we may seek punitive damages.
How long do I have to file my personal injury case?
There are strict time limits for filing a lawsuit. We advise accident victims or anyone with a disability to contact us as soon as possible. It is important to investigate your case quickly. We will explain the time limits that apply. For example, workers need to notify their employer of an accident promptly. The statute of limitations for most personal injury lawsuits and wrongful death claims in Pennsylvania is generally two years. Exceptions may apply.
If you fail to file your lawsuit in time, you will lose all rights to seek compensation for your injuries or the death of a loved one.
