  • Medical Malpractice Laws

    Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are expected to provide a certain level of care to their patients and can be considered negligent if they fail to meet these standards. If a patient is injured as a result of health care provider’s negligence, medical malpractice has occurred.

    An example of this would be if a doctor failed to order a standard test that any other doctor would have ordered under typical conditions. If the patient is injured as a result, the doctor may be sued for compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other losses stemming from the patient’s injury.

    Patients who suspect that they were injured as a result of their medical professional negligence do not have forever to hold them accountable, though. New York law puts the statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases at two and a half years, or 30 months, with some exceptions.

  • Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

    Unfortunately, there are quite a few ways that medical malpractice can occur, in many different medical settings during many different medical procedures.

    Hospitals in New York have large staffs full of busy people, and sometimes things fall through the cracks. Whether it involves doctors, nurses, technicians, or others, some forms of medical malpractice in this environment include:

    • Neglected or ignored a patient;
    • Failed to monitor a patient’s vital signs;
    • Delayed or failed to treat a patient according to his or her vital signs;
    • Failed to properly care for a patient following surgery; and
    • Failed to order standard medical tests.

    Examples of negligence from doctors like anesthesiologists, general care physicians, specialists, surgeons and others include:

    • Failure to read a patient’s medical chart or test results correctly;
    • Prescribed medications in conflict with other drugs a patient was on that caused an allergic reaction;
    • Misdiagnosed an injury or disease;
    • Delayed a diagnosis;
    • Administered the incorrect amount of anesthesia;
    • Performed the wrong surgery or an unnecessary surgery; and
    • Left a surgical tool in a patient following surgery.

    Nursing homes staff members can be considered negligent in the following ways:

    • Failed to properly screen staff members;
    • Understaffed their facilities; and
    • Failed to appropriately supervise their staff, leading to emotional, physical or economic abuse or neglect.

    • Collecting evidence to support your claim;
