Boulevard Medical Healthcare Medical Malpractice Lawyer

While we rely on doctors, anesthesiologists, surgeons, nurses, and all other healthcare providers who work in hospitals to save lives and treat debilitating illnesses and injuries, the fact is that even our highly advanced healthcare system here in the United States is flawed. Doctors make prescription errors, overworked nurses make mistakes in a patient’s record, and surgeons nick arteries or even leave behind sponges after closing up. Tragically, even a relatively minor error can spell disaster for a patient. If you or a loved one were harmed due to a hospital error at Boulevard Hospital, a New York City medical malpractice lawyer may be your best option for ensuring that you do not suffer unnecessary financial harm on top of the physical trauma that you or your loved one has already been subjected to.

Most Common Types of Medical Malpractice Claims

Below are just a few of the most common types of medical malpractice claims that we have handled for past clients. This is by no means a complete list of the mistakes that doctors and hospitals make that lead to a patient’s prolonged illness, poor medical outcome, or death:

  • Failing to order the proper diagnostic tests or imaging/radiology
  • Failure to interpret test or imaging results
  • Failing to treat the illness or injury with the proper care
  • Delayed treatment, or delayed diagnosis
  • Radiology errors
  • Anesthesiology errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Nursing errors
  • Record errors made by other hospital staff
  • Infections picked up in the hospital due to unclean/unsanitary conditions

Winning a Medical Malpractice Claim Requires Proving Negligence

Not all medical errors are grounds for filing a medical malpractice claim. In fact, hundreds of thousands of patients die every year in the United States who would otherwise live had their healthcare providers done every possible thing correctly (for example: timely cancer screenings, proper diagnosis, immediate treatment, proper medication, etc.) When it comes to malpractice, a plaintiff must be able to prove that their healthcare provider not only made a mistake, but that that mistake fell outside the accepted standard of care. Standard of care refers to the specific type of treatment that a healthcare provider is legally required to provide a patient based on the following:

  • Patient’s illness/injury
  • Patient’s age, health, and other characteristics such as family medical history
  • The geographical region the patient is receiving care

Only if the doctor’s treatment or diagnosis fell outside of the standard of care, and that mistake led to the patient being harmed, will a medical malpractice claim stand a chance at being successful.
