Deepdale General Hospital Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Deepdale General Hospital, also known as Little Neck community Hospital, was a 185-bed facility in Little Neck, Queens. The hospital opened in 1959 and changed hands, eventually being acquired by New York Hospital. Today it is an assisted living facility.

If you were injured while receiving medical care, you could have important legal rights. A Deepdale General Hospital medical malpractice lawyer at Michael Gunzburg, P.A., can explain the process for obtaining compensation in a free meeting.

What Qualifies as Medical Malpractice in New York?

Malpractice is a state law claim. New York has many excellent hospitals, but even the best medical professionals can make mistakes. When they do, innocent patients can bring a malpractice claim for compensation.

Malpractice consists of a careless act or omission. The key is whether your medical provider used the judgment and skill other professionals would have used in similar situations. It’s a high bar. If they can’t get over it, then they have committed medical negligence.

Medical errors delay treatment and increase the risk of complications and disability. Patients deserve financial compensation for these injuries, and our firm stands ready to hold hospitals, doctors, surgeons, nurses, pharmacists, and technicians accountable.

Some common malpractice claims include:

  • Birth injuries. Many babies are injured because doctors overlook signs of fetal distress, or they do not respond in appropriate ways. A delayed C-section could cause serious injuries, including brain damage. Other births are violent, and a baby could suffer broken bones or other injuries.
  • Failure to treat. A doctor could order the wrong treatment, often because of an inaccurate diagnosis. A patient’s condition never improves, and some will die.
  • Missed diagnosis. Your doctor might minimize the pain you feel, telling you nothing is wrong. If you are really sick, then a missed diagnosis delays treatment. Your condition will probably worsen.
  • Surgical errors. Many things can go wrong in surgery. Incision errors can perforate a healthy organ or nerves, and careless teams can leave objects or implements behind. Other patients are injured when anesthesia is administered incorrectly. In extreme cases, surgeons perform the wrong surgery on a patient.
  • Medication errors. Nurses might dispense the wrong medication or give too much, causing serious complications. In other cases, a doctor prescribes the wrong drug which is either ineffective or has serious side effects.

In each case, we need to analyze closely what happened. Did the doctor overlook obvious symptoms? Did data entry contribute to the medical error? When we find errors like these, we know our clients have a strong case. Call our firm so we can begin investigating.
