We keep the conversation open by having an open dialogue on issues of interest to legal & medical professionals, and anyone interested in or affected by medical malpractice or the health care industry.
Attorneys Jerry Meyers and Brendan Lupetin were recently interviewed as part of a report for ABC27.com related to autopsies and medical negligence after a 53-year old woman died following a 30+ day stay in a Pennsylvania hospital. Her family has questions about the care that she received, and whether or not negligence in that care led to her death. They requested an autopsy, and expressed concern about the autopsy being performed by the same hospital that provided her care being a conflict of interest.

New Bill Approved By Congress That Allows Active Duty Military Members To Sue For Medical Malpractice
Bi-partisan legislation has been introduced in the House and Senate that would partially repeal the Feres Doctrine and allow active duty military to sue under the FTCA when they are injured or killed from medical malpractice. This bill passed Congress on 12/17/2019 and is expected to be signed into law by the President. If this bill becomes law, for the first time in almost 70 years active duty military would be allowed to seek redress from the Department of Defense (DOD) when they are injured and killed due to medically malpractice in military hospitals.
