NYC Medical Malpractice Lawyer
At Michael Gunzburg, P.C., we find that in many of our cases, especially in medical malpractice matters, our clients want to know what happened to them, and more importantly, why the negligent incident occurred. Sometimes the knowledge of why an unfortunate event occurred is a lot more powerful in the healing process than anything else, including money. Many times, our clients also want their lives back.
Our goal is not just to get our clients the compensation they deserve, but to help them heal from their injuries and give them their lives back.
We have three decades of extensive experience handling medical malpractice cases. We recognize that not all doctors are negligent. However, there are instances where doctors, nurses and hospitals are negligent and fail to adhere to community standards of care, and that their negligence results in serious and permanent injuries to their patients. We stand ready to help you not only get compensation for your injuries but find out what really happened, and why it happened.

NYC Medical Malpractice FAQ
What is medical malpractice?
Medical Malpractice cases arise when a physician, nurse or other medical care professional causes death or serious injury to a patient because they did not follow the accepted standard of care and skill that a reasonably competent and skilled medical care professional, with a similar background and in the same medical community would have provided to the plaintiff under similar conditions. This is known as deviating from the “reasonable standard of care.”
What types of damages can I recover for in a medical malpractice claim?
If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to recover damages on multiple grounds such as medical expenses for treating the injuries caused by the malpractice, pain and suffering, lost wages and more.
Do I have a case?
In order to effectively and successfully prosecute a medical malpractice case, you need a good solid understanding of the medicine and circumstances surrounding your claim. We initiate virtually all of our medical malpractice cases by first gathering all of your medical records. Once we have everything, we have the medical records reviewed by our expert physician/medical professional who has the same medical specialty as the physician/medical professional you are complaining about.
