Medical malpractice is the act of improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, or other health care professional, resulting in undue injury to a patient.
Medical negligence comes in a wide variety of forms that range from misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, surgical errors and failure to follow up with treatment, acquired infections, or failure to monitor patient vital signs.
Unfortunately, hospitals and doctors make mistakes just like anyone else. The difference is usually the patient is unconscious during surgery and has no ability to protect himself. Too often, patients don't find out about the malpractice until it is too late. Studies have indicated that doctor and hospital errors are responsible for approximately 100,000 deaths in the United States each year.
New York has some of the most restrictive medical malpractice laws - cases must be brought within 2.5 years from the malpractice date. In certain circumstances, for example against a municipal hospital, the time limitations are even stricter: 90 days for a notice of claim from the last date of treatment and 1 year and 90 days from the last date of treatment for the malpractice alleged.
We have helped recover millions of dollars on behalf of our clients stemming from people injured by medical malpractice.
