A number of Bordas & Bordas’ medical malpractice cases over the years have addressed particular issues of hospital liability, including Andrews v. Reynolds Memorial Hospital , Haught v. Weirton Medical Center and Boggs v. Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital .
Cases like Haught v. Weirton Medical Center brought to the fore issues of negligent credentialing, or allowing a physician to perform a procedure for which he or she is not properly qualified and should not be permitted to perform.
In Boggs v. Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital, the hospital covered up a wrongful death. Ultimately, the jury verdict included more damages for the hospital’s cover-up than for the death itself, in light of the extreme outrageousness and intentional nature of the hospital’s deceit.
Andrews v. Reynolds Memorial Hospital highlighted issues of effective communication among hospital staff. Bordas & Bordas continues to take on the difficult cases involving hospital liability. Hospitals tend to be powerful local actors with significant resources and clout. Nevertheless, when a hospital wrongs an injured victim, a dedicated Pittsburgh hospital negligence lawyer at our firm is standing by ready to help.
