Medical Malpractice Lawyer New York City

New York City Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical professionals in New York City are among the most talented in the world. If you have a medical condition, you can feel confident that a doctor or other medical professional will effectively diagnose and treat it. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. In some cases, a doctor or other medical professional acts negligently and provides inadequate or substandard treatment, or omits to take proper action and thus deviates from the professional standard of care owed to his or her patients. This behavior often leads victims to suffer disabling injuries or even death as a result. This is unacceptable. If you or a loved one have been harmed due to an act of medical malpractice, you can turn to a New York City medical malpractice lawyer from Mirza Law for assistance.

Medical Malpractice Cases | Common Examples

Medical malpractice issues can come in many forms. Fortunately, many mistakes from medical providers don’t have significant consequences and can be easily remedied. That said, all too often, these mistakes can have permanent impacts on a person’s quality of life. Just some of the most common medical errors we see are as follows:

  • Diagnosis errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Orthopedic malpractice
  • Neurological malpractice
  • Cardiology malpractice
  • Errors during the birthing process
  • Cancer treatment errors

What You Need to Win a Medical Malpractice Claim

In New York State, you can bring a medical malpractice claim against various types of medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, or even medical institutions. That said, if you would like to bring a medical malpractice claim against a doctor for negligent acts leading to a disabling injury, you’ll need to prove several things to win a medical malpractice claim. They are as follows:

  1. The physician (doctor) in question was, in fact, your physician, which, would establish the physician’s professional standard duty of care owed to his or her patients.
  2. The physician took action (or failed to take action) that breached his or her duty of care owed to you. Typically, this is defined as acting in a way that falls short of the standard of care you could expect from a physician with similar training and experience.
  3. The physician’s action or inaction has a direct causal relation to your injury or illness.
  4.  You incurred damages as a result of your injury and illness.

Our NYC medical malpractice lawyer is prepared to fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.

Don’t Wait to File Your Medical Malpractice Claim

The statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims in New York City is, typically, two and a half years. Waiting longer than 2.5 years to bring your medical malpractice claim will likely cost you your right to sue. In general, it’s always best to speak with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.
