A medical malpractice happens when doctors, nurses, pharmacists or other medical professionals make mistakes which cause serious injury or death to a patient. It often has dire consequences against medical practitioners if the patient can prove that he or she is a victim of a medical malpractice.
Most medical malpractices are characterized by reckless actions and negligent behavior. Permanent disability, large medical bills, inability to work, death, pain and suffering are among the major serious consequences victims suffer.
In case of a wrongful death, families or loved ones of the victim have legal grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the medical professional or hospital who have caused the death.
Our lawyers here in New York have handled various types of medical malpractice cases that range from surgical errors, emergency room errors, birth injuries, medical misdiagnosis, delay in diagnosis, medication errors, hospital injury, and hospital infection.

At this point, you might be questioning yourself if you have a fair chance if you’ll bring your complain to the court. Fact is, medical malpractice is notoriously hard to prove but with the help of a high caliber lawyer, you can have a bigger chance of getting fully compensated.
The difficulty lies mainly on the fact that medical professionals who committed mistakes often deny their wrongdoings. With insufficient evidence, a victim have lesser to no chance at all of filing a lawsuit. Also, even though if a medical practitioner owns up to his or her mistake, it is a given that insurance companies would do anything to avoid paying the victims.
