Victims of car accidents in Pennsylvania often require medical attention following a wreck. For those seriously or catastrophically injured, a trip to the hospital is typically necessary. When health care is not provided in a timely matter, the result can be fatal. A medical malpractice suit filed by a widow claims that an out-of-state hospital failed to provide that care, resulting in her husband's death.
The victim was riding a motorcycle at the time of the accident, leaving him particularly vulnerable to injury. By the time that the emergency responders showed up, his widow says that he was already experiencing a significant amount of pain in both his chest and his abdomen. They ultimately transported him to the hospital, although at that point his health was already going downhill.
