What Is a Medical Malpractice Claim?
When patients are under the care of a medical professional, they trust that the professional will use their best skill and judgment to provide adequate care.
If a medical professional failed to uphold the standard of care and injury, illness, or wrongful death was the result, patients and families may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. Misdiagnosis, prescription errors, and incorrect treatment may all be considered medical malpractice.
Proving medical negligence can be a complex process. Doctors and hospitals are experts at burying the facts that show they were at fault. Our medical negligence attorneys know how to look behind the veil of medical secrecy to get to the truth. By trusting our medical malpractice lawyers with your case, you can greatly improve the possibility of recovering damages to help you and your loved ones move forward.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases Our New York City Attorneys Frequently Represent
Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose
If a doctor mistakes your symptoms for the wrong illness or injury, it can lead to improper treatment. When a patient is improperly diagnosed, their condition can get worse and possibly lead to death. Our attorneys can hold physicians liable for pain, suffering, and health losses that are the result of faulty diagnoses.
Patients prescribed the wrong medication or the wrong dosage can experience significant side effects. The doctor who wrote the prescription or the pharmacist who filled the prescription can be held liable for the medication errors, in addition to other entities or professionals involved with the medication.
The negligence of medical professionals before and during birth can cause life-changing conditions for the mother and child. Failure to identify a birth defect or medical condition, using improper delivery methods, or misusing medical equipment like forceps can all be considered medical malpractice.
Errors like leaving medical equipment inside of a patient or operating on the wrong organ can cause severe issues for the patient. Improperly administering anesthesia is also considered a medical error. Our medical malpractice attorneys can show how your adverse medical conditions are a direct result of surgical errors.

What Our Medical Malpractice Attorneys Can Do For You
Proving that an injury occurred directly as a result of a physician's negligence can take intensive research. Presenting the findings in your case clearly and effectively can be the difference between getting a life-changing settlement or having your case dismissed. Our attorneys work hard to hold doctors and health care workers liable for their negligent actions.
Work With Medical Professionals
Our New York City medical malpractice lawyers work closely with experts in relevant fields to identify departures from accepted standards of medical care. Working with expert physicians enables our attorneys to create more compelling arguments for maximum compensation.
Meet Important Deadlines
From filing your claim to attending hearings, meeting court deadlines is crucial for obtaining a favorable outcome. We understand you have a full plate and remembering every deadline can be difficult. Our attorneys will stay on top of your case until its conclusion.
Fight For Compensation
An insurance company or a hospital will try to settle with you before you have a chance to pursue damages. You should always let an attorney review any offers before accepting them. Insurance companies have the incentive to offer you less than you deserve – sometimes far less. You are more likely to get maximum compensation by partnering with our law office.
Don't Delay Your Time is Limited
Under New York law, patients have two years and six months from the date of the medical malpractice incident to pursue damages. Having 30 months to file a medical malpractice lawsuit may seem like a great deal of time at first. If you factor in time loss from income, emotional damages, and physical recovery, patients may find that their time goes by faster than expected.
Rather than add the stress of filing your medical malpractice lawsuit, let out New York City attorneys oversee your case. You can focus on rebuilding your life while we hold professionals responsible for medical errors.
