MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY NYC

Medical Negligence

Patients who have suffered an injury due to medical negligence should seek the counsel of an experienced medical malpractice attorney in NYC. Physicians are responsible for performing their jobs up to the accepted standard of care of the medical community. When treating a patient, doctors must take the same steps as another competent physician in the same field. When a doctor fails to uphold that level of care, they have committed medical negligence. Medical malpractice can cause the patient serious injury and has been known to be fatal in some cases.

Fortunately, patients who have suffered an injury due to medical negligence may be able to file a lawsuit to recoup damages they may have suffered. Our firm has been protecting the rights of medical malpractice victims for over 60 years. We understand the strain an injury due to medical negligence can cause patients. As a result, our medical malpractice attorneys are committed to helping our patients recover compensation by fighting for the damages they may have suffered.

What Are The Grounds For A Valid Medical Negligence Claim?

While individuals who have suffered an injury due to improper medical treatment may be able to file a lawsuit, they must be able to prove that their presiding doctor failed to meet certain criteria. The following are necessary to have a viable medical negligence claim:

The Doctor Failed To Uphold The Standard Of Care: Doctors are expected to act with the same level of care as another competent physician in the same field. When a doctor fails to uphold this standard of care, they have acted negligently.

The Physician's Negligence Was The Cause Of The Injury: In order to have a valid medical malpractice claim, the physician's negligence must have been directly responsible for the patient's injury. In other words, a patient can be injured in a medical procedure, but they do not have a valid lawsuit unless the physician acted negligently and that negligence caused the injury.

The Injury Caused The Patient To Suffer Damages: The patient's injury must have caused either economic or non-economic damages in order to have a valid claim. Economic damages are any financial losses the patient suffered due to the injury, such as lost wages or medical bills not covered by insurance. Non-economic damages are any long-term physical pain or emotional trauma caused by the injury.
