Medical malpractice is a serious problem. Our attorneys recognize that medical malpractice cases are more complex and require more than merely demonstrating a bad medical outcome. New York law requires that attorneys consult with medical experts to determine whether the injuries were the result of malpractice. Our attorneys have significant experience working with medical experts to demonstrate medical malpractice.
We have successfully represented numerous victims of medical malpractice occurring throughout a broad range of areas, including:
In the state of New York, barring special circumstances, victims of medical malpractice have two years and six months to file a medical malpractice claim. However, it is important to consult an attorney as soon as there is a suspicion that medical negligence has occurred. Doctors, hospitals, and their insurers often explain a birth injury, surgical mistake and other medical errors as “a risk of a procedure” or that “there was no way to know earlier.” By delaying investigation into a medical malpractice case, important evidence can be lost. Our attorneys know this, and are able to immediately investigate and pursue medical malpractice claims.
