ONE FAMILY’S STORY
Our clients can speak more eloquently than we can about how choosing the right medical malpractice attorney can make all the difference in the outcome of a case.
We are honored to have helped Joseph and his family obtain justice after the untimely and unexpected death of Mr. Schili’s father as a result of medical malpractice. Here is what Mr. Schili had to say, in his own words:
“We had many questions and grave concerns with regard to what had transpired and the care (my father) received but we didn’t know where to turn. As a law enforcement officer at the time, I had turned to colleagues of mine who were attorneys. They all had one answer; “The Colleran Firm”.
“We entered into a relationship and, as a result, received personal attention and compassion that we hadn’t experienced in the past by unparalleled professionals. We noted attention to strict detail and the utmost of compassion, personal dedication and the utmost professional representation even in the face of adversity.
“Finding and being represented by the Colleran Firm was a saving grace for myself and my family at our most trying time. They listened to us, our concerns and offered us hope when we thought things seemed ultimately hopeless. They had gotten us answers and ultimately brought those responsible present to answer for their actions or lack thereof. “
We are honored to have represented the Schili family. The greatest satisfaction that we receive as medical malpractice attorneys is using our legal skill to help families obtain justice and reach closure after a preventable loss.
HOW WE HANDLE PENNSYLVANIA MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
Many families who have been harmed by a health care provider’s negligence need answers because they are uncertain exactly what has happened. Rarely do doctors or hospitals voluntarily admit their mistakes. You owe it to yourself to find out what really happened.
Finding out whether a preventable error medical occurred requires a review of your medical records by an independent medical expert. We are happy to discuss whether your injury could be a case during a free consultation at our office, if you are unable to come in to our office, we will gladly come to you.
Let The Colleran Firm have qualified medical experts evaluate your medical records and determine whether a health care provider provided substandard care. Every medical malpractice case has a specific set of facts and a patient history that requires careful analysis. We work with licensed doctors and recognized medical experts to identify whether an avoidable error occurred and a medical malpractice claim is in order.
We will identify all the potentially at-fault parties in a medical malpractice case. Some preventable errors result from breakdowns in a hospital’s system of safeguards or because of a lack of safeguards. We take all cases on a contingency fee basis meaning you will pay nothing unless we win your case.
We will seek a full settlement that recognizes the seriousness of your injury from the health care provider’s malpractice insurance provider. If the insurance provider is unwilling to make a fair settlement, we will go to trial to fight for your rights. Our success as trial attorneys often makes insurance companies more willing to settle a case to avoid going to trial.
