Our attorneys investigate and pursue claims for medical malpractice in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, having secured one of the largest verdicts in Hancock County history.

The Ohio Valley medical injury lawyers at Sellitti, Nogay & McCune understand that negligent treatment from a health care provider can result in a lifetime of expenses. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation for emotional damage, lost wages, medical expenses, physical impairment or pain and suffering. Our attorneys are aggressive in pursuing claims for such medical injuries and wrongful deaths as:

  • Birth trauma — Injuries to a newborn child can occur during any point in the labor and delivery process. Negligent neonatal care, premature birth or pregnancy complications can involve errors that result in cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy or other lifelong complications.
  • Emergency room (ER) errors — These cases can involve failure to refer to a specialist or a failure to monitor the patient, failure to admit to the hospital, giving the wrong type of blood or untreated infections.
  • Failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis — Understaffed hospitals or failure to perform the proper tests can result in a failure to diagnose a heart attack, stroke or cancer.
  • Medication errors — This can involve mistakes made in prescribing or administering drugs.
  • Surgical errors — Undergoing surgery is harrowing enough, and victims are entitled to compensation for mistakes involving an injury to another vital organ, surgical devices being left inside, and wrong site surgery or unnecessary surgery.
