Medical Malpractice – Getting Answers and Compensation for Medical Mistakes

Doctors and hospitals don’t like to admit their mistakes. Even when it is clear malpractice occurred and the doctor is responsible, it is sometimes still a mystery what went wrong and why. During the course of our case, while we are making sure you get the medical care and compensation you need, we also make sure to find out what went wrong and why. Learning what happened is as important to our clients as getting compensation for the harm done. We make it a point during the case to bring these facts to light for our clients’ sake.

Medical malpractice cases in New York City can be complex and emotionally challenging experiences. When you seek medical care, you trust healthcare professionals to provide competent treatment. However, instances of negligence or errors can occur, leading to serious harm or even death. Understanding your rights and the steps to take after medical malpractice is essential for seeking justice and compensation.

Our medical negligence practice covers every type of medical error, including surgical mistakes, birth injuries, medication and anesthesia errors, and more. Our New York City medical malpractice lawyers have particular expertise in cases involving failure to diagnose breast cancer, vulvar cancer and other forms of cancer.

Common Medical Malpractice Cases

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: When a medical professional fails to correctly diagnose a condition or delays diagnosis, it can lead to worsening health conditions or even fatalities.

Surgical Errors: Surgical errors encompass a wide range of mistakes, including operating on the wrong body part, leaving surgical instruments inside the body, or performing unnecessary procedures.

Medication Errors: Mistakes in prescribing or administering medication can have serious consequences, such as adverse drug reactions, overdoses, or drug interactions.

Birth Injuries: Negligence during childbirth can result in birth injuries to both the infant and the mother, such as cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries, or maternal hemorrhage.

Anesthesia Errors: Errors in administering anesthesia can lead to brain damage, organ failure, or death.

Steps to Take After Medical Malpractice

  1. Seek Medical Attention: If you suspect you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice, seek medical attention immediately to address any health concerns.
  2. Document Everything: Keep detailed records of all medical treatments, prescriptions, diagnoses, and communications with healthcare providers.
  3. Consult with a Medical Malpractice Attorney: Contact a reputable medical malpractice attorney who has experience handling cases in New York City. They can evaluate your case and provide guidance on the legal process.
  4. Statute of Limitations: Be aware of the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in New York City, which is generally two and a half years from the date of the alleged malpractice or from the end of continuous treatment for the condition related to the malpractice.
  5. Gather Evidence: Collect any relevant medical records, test results, and witness statements to support your case.
  6. Negotiation or Litigation: Your attorney will advise you on whether to pursue negotiation with the healthcare provider’s insurance company or proceed with litigation in court.
