$43,500,000

$43.5 million verdict for malpractice against former Eagles captain Chris Maragos.

Maragos v. Bradley, et al: The closely-watched medical malpractice case revolved around a meniscus tear that Maragos' medical team failed to treat and the medically negligent decision to advance his rehab. "This case and this jury may have changed the course of history by now forcing these team doctors and trainers to stop worrying about when a player might return to play and start thinking about the next 50 years of a player’s life,” said Dion G. Rassias, who tried the two week case.

Medical Malpractice FAQs

What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice or medical negligence means that a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider, acted in a way that deviated from the accepted standards of care, and that act or omission by the healthcare provider caused injury or death to a patient.

Who can be sued for medical malpractice?

Victims of medical malpractice can sue the doctor, nurse, surgeon, physician assistant (PA), anesthesiologist, OB doctor, midwife, pharmacist or nurse practitioner for acts of negligence. Additionally, an injured patient may also be able to sue the hospital, nursing home, physician practice group, medical teaching facility, or other corporate entities associated with those medical providers.

I can't afford all the medical bills, how can I afford an attorney?

Most plaintiff law firms handling injury cases will not charge you any money upfront to represent you. If you should receive an award, settlement or verdict, the attorney will subtract what it cost to work up your case and a small percentage fee upon conclusion of the case. If no award was received, you do not owe anything. The Beasley Firm operates on a contingency fee basis.

Why does medical malpractice occur?

Medical errors are one of the leading causes of death in the United States, making it an epidemic in terms of national health care and patient safety. Some acts are even called โ€œnever eventsโ€ because they should never happen. Unfortunately, errors in diagnosis, treatment and management can and do occur with frequency. Here are a few reasons why medical malpractice occurs:

  • Inexperienced Medical Professionals: In todayโ€™s insurance and business-driven health care system, inexperienced medical professionals are given the responsibility to manage patient care, either without proper supervision or in a setting that the laws and hospital policies do not permit.
  • Understaffed Medical Facilities: Having an understaffed facility may mean doctors are rushing through procedures, miss a specific symptom, or even order the wrong tests for their patients. This leads to serious problems that can cause harm to a patient who may not receive the correct treatment.
  • System Errors: If a hospital has a flawed system for communication, transfers, and medical records, there may be a problem with the information given from one department to the next. This could lead to surgical errors or anesthesia errors that could cause significant harm to the patient.

What Are Common Types of Medical Malpractice?

There are several situations that would lead an individual to file a medical malpractice claim. Although no two cases are exactly alike, most medical malpractice claims will fall into one of these categories:

  • Failure to diagnose: This occurs if a patientโ€™s outcome would have been better had the doctor discovered a patientโ€™s illness sooner.
  • Improper treatment: Involves both a doctor treating an illness or injury incorrectly, or administering the correct treatment in an improper way.
  • Lack of informed consent: This occurs if a doctor fails to warn a patient of the known risks of a procedure, surgery, or treatment.

No matter how complex the case, our skilled medical malpractice attorneys in Philadelphia are more than capable of handling it. We believe in accomplishing the impossible here at The Beasley Firm and have the resources and experience to do it.
