Practice AreasMedical Malpractice
When a patient seeks medical care or advice from a provider, they assume the treatment will make them feel better, not worse. We search for the “best” doctors and specialists to treat our loved ones, but even the most experienced treaters with the most impressive degrees make negligent errors in treating patients. Medical Malpractice by a doctor- or anyone on a medical team- can lead to permanent injury or death, more treatment and expensive medical bills possibly for the rest of the victim’s life..
Medical malpractice lawsuits are often more complicated than other personal injury matters, as there may be multiple parties responsible including different doctors, nurses, and specialists, as well as any affiliated hospital or group. The best Medical Malpractice trial lawyers have a deep understanding of the medicine involved and are able to convey that information to a jury.
Medical Malpractice can include the following errors or failures to provide the accepted standard of care:
Delay in diagnosis
Pregnancy and childbirth errors leading to injury
The statute of limitations (deadline) to file a Medical Malpractice claim in New York State is 2 ½ years from the date of the alleged negligent action or omission that caused the patient’s injury. This deadline can be confusing to calculate where the treatment was ongoing or the diagnosis was made by various treaters. It is critical that you consult a Medical Malpractice lawyer who can determine the statute of limitations on your claim.
