Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits in New York City

Thousands of doctors throughout the five boroughs safeguard our health. We trust our doctors to perform their work with care. And usually they do. However, when a doctor fails in his or her duty to practice medicine according to accepted standards, and when that failure results in serious injury to a patient, then the patient may have a valid claim for medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice can arise in many situations:

  • In the emergency room, due to errors of diagnosis or treatment
  • In scheduled surgery, due to errors by doctors, nurses or other surgical staff
  • In a hospital room, when nurses or nursing assistants fail to guard their patients against dangers such as incorrect medication dosages, falls or adverse reactions to prescribed medication
  • In the child delivery rooms, where avoidable errors by obstetricians can result in serious birth injuries such cerebral palsy or infant brain damage
  • In a doctor’s consulting room, where a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose serious illness like cancer or heart disease can have traumatic and irreversible impact on a person’s life

Medical malpractice lawsuits have become notoriously difficult to prove in recent years. The high cost of building and bringing to trial a medical malpractice lawsuit means that many lawyers will not even consider taking on lawsuits based on medical negligence.
