Boulevard Hospital Medical Malpractice Lawyer

New Yorkers visit the doctor for routine checkups, as well as when they are feeling sick. We expect everyone we meet—from doctors and nurses—to provide the best care possible. Unfortunately, that’s not always what patients get. Instead, medical mistakes end up denying patients necessary care, and many will become even sicker. Surgical mistakes and hospital infections have the potential to be life-threatening.

Call Michael Gunzburg, P.C. Our firm has brought many successful malpractice cases against hospitals and doctors. A Boulevard Hospital medical malpractice lawyer can provide a more detailed explanation of your legal rights in a free consultation.

Boulevard Hospital in Queens

At its height, Boulevard had more than 200 beds and proudly served the Queens community. Unfortunately, the hospital ran into financial difficulties and ended up closing in 1985. If you received treatment from Boulevard, then the statute of limitations has already expired, and you can’t seek compensation for treatment received 40 years ago. Furthermore, the hospital no longer exists as a legal entity to be sued.

Nonetheless, you might have received care from a different hospital in Queens, so call our law office today. We can investigate to better understand the details of your care plan. We might also file a malpractice case against any medical professional for the mistakes they committed.

What You Need to Prove to Win

A medical malpractice case has the following required elements:

  1. The defendant agreed to treat you. If you go to an emergency room, they are agreeing to treat you, so they owe you a duty of care.
  2. The defendant breached their duty of care. In malpractice cases, professionals must meet at least the accepted standard for delivering medical services. This standard is essentially the quality of care other doctors would have provided. If the defendant’s care doesn’t rise to this level, then they have been negligent.
  3. You suffered damages, such as increased medical expenses, bodily pain, or lost income.
  4. The defendant’s negligence caused your damages. It’s not enough to feel sick or have a stroke. We need to tie it to the negligent treatment you received.

Medical errors which breach the standard of care include mistaken diagnosis, prescription errors, surgical mistakes, incision errors, failure to prevent infection, and early discharge from the hospital. If you suspect you weren’t given quality care, pick up a phone and call us.

We can investigate and, if we think your case has merit, file a legal claim. We will even negotiate on your behalf for financial compensation. Medical errors harm patients by requiring additional medical care, which is an unnecessary expense. These errors also keep too many people cooped up in bed when they could be working and earning an income.
