What Are The Steps of a New York City Medical Malpractice Claim?

After consulting with and choosing your attorney, your attorney will begin gathering evidence to build your case. This includes obtaining medical records, having your records analyzed by our expert medical physician/medical professional, and gathering other evidence of medical negligence. Once this evidence has been analyzed, or possibly during this information gathering process,we will file a Notice of Claim, informing the municipality of your decision to file a lawsuit. This must be done within 90 days from the date of malpractice or the date the plaintiff was made aware of the malpractice. We will then file the complaint with the court, in which your damages will be named; after this, the discovery process begins. During discovery, we and the opposing party will exchange evidence, as required by law, initiate depositions, request records, etc. By now, many months have likely passed since you made the decision to file a medical malpractice claim/lawsuit. Unfortunately, it takes a long time for such a case to be resolved, particularly when there is a great sum at stake.

The Final Steps in a Rockefeller University Hospital Medical Malpractice Claim

The final steps in a medical malpractice claim includes negotiating the terms of settlement. It is usually in both party’s interest to settle the claim or lawsuit outside of court. The negotiation process can take months. If a settlement is reached, the plaintiff will be compensated as they see fit. If not, the next step is trial. During a court trial, both sides argue their cases before a judge and jury. Trials tend to be complex, taxing endeavors, but are necessary when the other party refuses to cooperate and you and your attorney are confident in the facts of the case. Trials culminate with a jury verdict. You may be able to appeal the decision if you disagree with the outcome.
