Scranton, Wilkes-Barre Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Serving Wilkes Barre & The Greater Scranton PA areas

It’s hard enough to be told you have a serious health problem. It’s even worse to discover that it was caused by a preventable medical error. Preventable medical errors in the United States occur at an alarming rate, often with devastating results for patients and their families. In U.S. hospitals, preventable errors have been ranked as the third-leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer.

Medical malpractice occurs when the care given falls below the “standard of care,” which is defined as what any other health-care provider would normally do under the circumstances. It can include failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, surgical errors, wrong-site surgeries, medication errors, failure to administer proper treatment, failure to resuscitate or rescue, or injuries caused by medical devices or implants. Medical malpractice can be brought against a doctor, nurse, other health provider; a hospital, clinic, or local, state and federal agency.


Because of the complexity and cost of pursuing medical malpractice cases, you need a law firm like HKQ with the necessary experience and resources. Our firm, under the leadership of Attorney Joe Quinn, has won some of the largest verdicts and settlements in the history of Northeastern Pennsylvania. For more than 40 years, we have earned a reputation for exceptional results both in and out of the courtroom.

If you or a loved one are among the unfortunate victims of a medical error, don’t suffer alone. The Medical Malpractice Lawyers, and the supporting resources at Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn have earned a reputation as the premier medical malpractice litigation firm in the Wilkes Barre, Scranton & Northeast PA region.

When meeting with medical malpractice lawyers,
be sure to bring:

  • Insurance documents
  • Hospital paperwork
  • Emergency room visits
  • Medical reports
  • List of medications.
When we say, “No one will work harder for you.℠” It’s not just a slogan. It’s our promise.


Remember, most importantly, if you have been involved in any type of accident, NEVER sign any type of document, or agree to any type of medical testing or you may waive important legal rights.
