Parsons Hospital Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Parsons was one of the smaller hospitals in Queens, which focused on serving immigrants and their families. Opened in 1963, the hospital only lasted a quarter of a century before it was sold and, ultimately, shut down.

Few people today ever received treatment at Parsons Hospital, which was gone by the 1990s. But if you are reading this page, then you probably received treatment recently from a Queens hospital. And you possibly think the care you received wasn’t of high quality.

Call Michael Gunzburg today if you believe you are the victim of medical malpractice. New York doctors and other medical professionals must provide a high level of care to all their patients. When they fall short, anyone hurt by this negligence can file a medical malpractice case against them for compensation. Our Parsons Hospital medical malpractice lawyer describes more below.

How Malpractice Cases Work

Doctors and other professionals receive substantial training and education so they can treat patients in a competent manner. Unfortunately, mistakes happen. A doctor could be overworked or burnt out, or the patient file contains errors which impact treatment. The upshot is that patients fail to get well due to these mistakes. In fact, some patients suffer even more painful injuries.

Hospitals and doctors should have malpractice insurance, which covers claims brought by injured patients. For example, many of our clients sue for prescription mistakes, diagnostic errors, botched surgeries, or other errors. The malpractice insurance policy should cover a mistake like these.

Doctors and hospitals rarely admit up front they are to blame. You’ll probably need to meet with a different doctor to get a second opinion. If hired, we can also request all medical records, which we review with expert witnesses to find out what went wrong.

Essentially, we will compare the treatment you received to what other professionals would have done. This is how we compare your treatment to the accepted standard of care.

When a doctor or other professional is negligent, we can file a lawsuit against them. We demand financial compensation for:

  • Bodily pain
  • Mental distress or depression
  • Lost income
  • Cost of additional medical treatment

Our law firm can reach out to the defendant and try to negotiate a settlement, which will make a trial unnecessary. We are often successful in negotiation. But in many cases, the defense simply denies responsibility. They claim a doctor or hospital followed the correct standard, and they reject our offer to settle.

Your lawyer should take whatever steps are necessary to win your case. That might mean filing a lawsuit to protect your right to litigate in the event negotiations falter.
