Astoria General Hospital Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Astoria General Hospital was founded in the 19th Century and has bounced around a few locations since then. Today, the hospital is affiliated with Mount Sinai and goes by the name Mount Sinai Queens. They offer a full range of medical care to patients, including emergency care, cancer treatment, and obstetrics, among many others.

Contact Michael Gunzburg, P.C., if you believe you believe medical malpractice at this or any other hospital has harmed you. Patients deserve quality treatment and to have their concerns addressed. An Astoria General Hospital medical malpractice lawyer at our firm can answer any questions you might have in a confidential consultation.

Overview of Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice is the failure to use professional care when treating patients. Hospitals, doctors, nurses, and other professionals must adhere to the generally accepted standard of care when treating patients. If they don’t, then injured patients can sue for their economic and non-economic damages.

A case typically consists of the following:

  • We need to find out what happened. You might have gone to the doctor with chest pains, only to be told everything was fine. A day later you suffered a heart attack. We want to know why the doctor didn’t diagnose you with heart problems and offer appropriate treatment.
  • Legal analysis. Our firm works with expert witnesses to understand whether your doctor followed the accepted standard of care. We might meet with expert witnesses to get their views on what your doctor should have done.
  • Medical review. We also want a better understanding of how the malpractice injured you. A missed cancer diagnosis, for example, can lead to metastatic cancer, meaning it has spread to distant sites.
  • Once we have a firm belief you were the victim of malpractice, we can demand financial compensation from the hospital and/or the medical professional responsible. They should have malpractice insurance to pay compensation.
  • We might be unable to settle a claim, even with extensive negotiation. At that point, we’ll march into court and file a lawsuit against all defendants. Typically, you get only 30 months to sue from the date you received negligent care, so reach out to our firm as soon as possible.
  • Throughout the entire process, we remain available to talk with clients and offer helpful advice. For example, if your condition is not improving, we might recommend meeting with a new doctor.

Our clients have received millions of dollars for their medical expenses, bodily pain, embarrassment, emotional distress, and more. Let us review how much your claim might be worth, as well as what other evidence we need.
