Medical malpractice can be an especially difficult legal matter for several reasons.

The following are a few examples of how a medical malpractice lawsuit might start:

  • Patient was given too much medication, not enough medication or the wrong medication
  • Doctor performed a surgery mistake
  • An over-fatigued doctor or nurse made a mistake in an emergency room
  • An inaccurate date was entered into the patient’s medical chart
  • Doctor made the wrong diagnosis or read Food & Drug Administration warnings but ignored them
  • Syringe was contaminated
  • Nurse’s hands had hazardous bacteria or virus germs on them

There are, of course, many more examples of medical malpractice. Researching and unraveling the medical errors that lead to your pain or suffering is what we do as experienced New York malpractice attorneys. For 80 years we’ve been representing injured patients.

Medical Malpractice Victims Need a Fearless, Reliable New York Lawyer

The human factor is the other complex aspect of medical malpractice cases. Sometimes the person who is found to be negligent in making an erroneous medical diagnosis, incorrect prescription, or botched surgery is a physician or nurse whom you’ve known and trusted for years. You may be hesitant to get on your doctor’s “wrong side” or take on a huge pharmaceutical company alone. But with us at your side, you’re not alone. We will be with you every step of the way, handling everything from obtaining medical records and interviewing witnesses, to having medical experts assess your health and the injuries you suffered due to your healthcare provider’s negligence.

Medical malpractice doesn’t only apply to M.D.s, nurses, pharmacies and hospitals. If you were injured by a dentist, hygienist, nurse practitioner, nursing home director, pharmacist assistant, emergency room errors by ER staff, EMS technician, chiropractor, midwife or physical therapist, you could have a medical practice claim. And if you lost a relative because of an operating table fatality or dangerous drug death, you may need to pursue a medical malpractice wrongful death lawsuit. In every case, you want a powerful New York medical malpractice legal team beside you—and that’s us.
