Uniquely Qualified To Handle Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
Attorney James I. Devine represents individuals who have been injured due to the negligence of a medical professional. Mr. Devine has more than 30 years of experience handling complex medical malpractice lawsuits and catastrophic injury cases. Initially, he defended health care professionals and providers in these cases while working for a large Philadelphia law firm.
When he founded his own firm in the mid-1990s, Mr. Devine began advocating for injured parties. His experience working both sides of these complex cases provides him valuable insights that benefit his clients.
The Resources Required To Build Strong Cases
Because of the high stakes involved in malpractice cases, they often are aggressively defended. Mr. Devine understands the strategies that defense lawyers employ, and he knows how to develop strong cases that effectively counter those defenses. It starts with extensive resources and access to highly regarded medical professionals who can present complex information in an effective manner to a jury and judge.
Pennsylvania law states that medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional breaches or violates the standard of care. Standard of care refers to generally accepted medical practices. It is not uncommon for patients who experience complications following a medical procedure to be unsure whether medical malpractice occurred. Malpractice can involve:
- Surgical nurses
- Treating physicians and nurses
- X-ray technicians
- Other hospital staff
Mr. Devine welcomes the opportunity to review the facts of your case and assess whether pursuing a lawsuit makes sense. The initial consultation is free and you will only pay an attorney fee if the firm helps you recover a financial judgment or settlement.

Pennsylvania law states an injured patient has two years from the date on which he or she knows or should have known they suffered an injury to file a malpractice lawsuit.
