Medical Malpractice in New York

Are you a victim of medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice can be defined as a faulty diagnosis or procedure rooted in ignorance or negligence that leads to serious injury for the patient. Any negligent prescription of medication or informed consent could also be considered malpractice. When a doctor doesn't stick to professional standards it leads to medical malpractice causing a patient even more suffering.

Negligence can be serious or even fatal, but medical malpractice is not strictly limited to doctors or physicians. It could also include nurses, physical therapists, dentists, and psychologists or any other person providing medical assistance to a patient. If you have been mistreated or inadequately diagnosed, talk to an attorney at La Sorsa & Beneventano to find out how you can receive help.

What is considered malpractice?

There are several different types of medical malpractice. According to experts, the most common cases include plastic surgery or cosmetic malpractice, prescription drug errors, birth injuries, and surgical and diagnostic errors. More severe instances of malpractice includes error in anesthesia that causes liver damage and death, undiagnosed heart disease that leads to a heart attack, and failure to diagnose cancer or appendicitis. If you are a victim of any one of these types of medical malpractice, you may be eligible to file a claim.

What should you do if you think you are a victim?

If you are simply unhappy with the results that you have received from a medical professional, it will not be considered malpractice. Instead, this must be handled between the patient and medical provider. If you are injured or seriously affected by the faulty treatment you have received, however, then you should seek the help of our New York personal injury attorneys. It will be helpful for you to gather all of the information that you have relating to your visits and appointments with the healthcare provider such as:

  • Prescriptions
  • Provider voicemails
  • Doctor bills
  • Appointment slips

You should also look to collect any record of lost wages while injured. Once you have gathered all of this information and feel that you have a valid case, our New York attorneys may be able to get you the compensation you deserve.
