Top New York City Malpractice Lawyer

If you or someone you love was hurt by medical negligence, you may have a valid claim to recover your lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses. Medical providers have a legal duty to meet the accepted standard of care they owe patients. When they fail to meet these standards and patients become hurt as a result, they can file a claim for compensation. Medical malpractice claims are some of the most complicated types of personal injury cases. Our top New York City malpractice lawyer can help you obtain the full settlement you deserve.

Why Work with Our Top New York City Malpractice Lawyer?

When filing a medical malpractice claim, there is simply too much at risk to go through the process alone. Our New York City malpractice lawyer can help you with your case in a number of ways, including:

  • Determine liability: Determining who is liable, or at fault, for your injuries is never easy. For example, you may think a nurse was negligent and caused your injuries. However, the hospital may also be liable if they did not provide the nurse with proper training. Our attorney can review the facts of your case to determine who is liable for paying you the damages you deserve.
  • Consult with experts: Under New York law, you will have to consult with medical experts during your case. A medical expert will also have to confirm that you have a valid case and were the victim of medical negligence. Most people do not have a network of these specialists, but our attorney does and will use it to help win your case.
  • Competent litigation: The majority of medical malpractice cases do not go to trial. While it is important to work with an attorney from the very beginning of your case, you should never consider going to trial without legal representation.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Claims

The damages awarded in medical malpractice cases are meant to restore you to the same physical, emotional, and financial position you were in before sustaining injury. While you can recover damages for any loss you suffered, they generally fall into one of three categories. These are as follows:

  • General damages: General damages provide compensation for your losses that do not have a concrete dollar value, such as pain and suffering.
  • Special damages: Special damages are intended to compensate you for your losses that do have a concrete dollar value, such as your medical expenses or lost income.
  • Punitive damages: Punitive damages are rare in malpractice cases and are only awarded if a medical provider has acted maliciously, intentionally, or in a way that was particularly egregious.
