Philadelphia has long been known for its world-class hospitals and doctors. The City of Brotherly Love has been called “a magnet for health care innovation,” and that reputation means that the region’s residents have tremendous confidence in the care that they will receive when they seek medical treatment. Unfortunately, even in an ideal environment there are healthcare providers who fall short of our expectations. Treatment can be negligent or careless, and lack of attention to detail or straightforward errors can cause injury, the worsening of an illness, and even death. If you or someone you love has been the victim of this type of negligence and you are investigating malpractice lawyers in Philadelphia, the law firm of Bochetto & Lentz is here to help. With decades of experience in aggressively advancing the interests of victims of medical malpractice, we will provide you with legal counsel and representation that will ensure the best possible outcome.


Medical malpractice can take many forms. It may be the result of improper or unskilled treatment, the lack of treatment, or negligent treatment by a healthcare provider.  That provider may be your physician or dentist, a nurse or pharmacist, or a medical facility’s employee. When you seek care for a medical condition, you do so trusting that the professional who is treating you will be skilled and will provide you with appropriate treatment that falls within the scope of generally accepted practice. We trust that our healthcare providers know what they are doing and will do it. When this trust is betrayed, you need the help of malpractice lawyers in Philadelphia.
