Serving Western Pennsylvania for Over 40 Years

On August 26, 2020, Brendan Lupetin and Gregory Unatin of Lupetin & Unatin, LLC obtained a jury verdict and a record-setting $10.83 million dollar award in favor of a patient that suffered permanent brain damage due to medical negligence by staff at Tyrone Hospital in Blair County, PA.

These two Pittsburgh attorneys, together with the firm’s founding attorney Jerry Meyers (retired in 2021), were the first to bring a Pennsylvania medical malpractice case to trial and win for the plaintiff since the COVID-19 Pandemic began. Their sincere hope and belief is that this will pave the way for more medical malpractice cases to be tried and won in Pennsylvania as we continue to navigate the challenges and restrictions caused by the pandemic. This lawsuit proves that it is possible to try a medical malpractice case in a Pennsylvania court, and get justice and financial restitution for individuals that have been harmed by the actions of medical professionals.

Our firm has been recognized by the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers for the firm’s high professional legal standards and ethics and has been recognized by Best Lawyers as one of the best law firms in America for medical malpractice and personal injury.

How a Lawyer Could Help You Pursue Compensation

In many medical malpractice cases, a settlement is reached without trial. In order to determine and agree upon the amount of a settlement, a Pittsburgh medical malpractice attorney could assist with:

  • Establishing the full extent of the injury
  • Determining the future needs of the victim, including expected medical costs and cost associated with living with the injury, such as retrofitting of the home, devices and appliances that may be required, and long-term personal care
  • Determining the maximum recovery obtained in similar cases that may have set a precedent
  • Calculating how much the victim would have reasonably made in wages over the course of their lifetime or in the case of homemakers, their contribution to the needs of their family

Attorney fees will ideally be recovered for such sums as are awarded for pain and suffering. This is much easier to do by settlement than by verdict.

Do Not Wait to Take Action

The law limits the amount of time you have in which to file a medical malpractice case in Pennsylvania. You typically have two years from the date of injury to file a medical malpractice case in Pennsylvania. In a case where the victim is a child (under 18), the statute of limitations does not apply until the child reaches 18. This means that a claim must be filed before the child turns 20. If the injury is not discovered immediately, the discovery rule may extend the amount of time in which you can file your claim. A Pittsburgh medical malpractice attorney could help ensure that all necessary legal steps are taken within the state’s required timeframe.
