Brooklyn Medical Malpractice Lawyer
If your doctor failed in his or her duty to respect your health, find out how to get financially compensated for your injury by consulting with a Brooklyn medical malpractice lawyer.
When you are seriously ill or have been injured, you typically see a medical professional to diagnose and treat your symptoms. While most of the time this results in a recovery, there are situations where a medical professional can be negligent and actually make your health worse.
Medical professionals are required by law to abide by a standard of care for their patients. When a doctor, nurse, or any other healthcare provider fails to uphold these standards, serious injuries can result, including permanent disability, organ damage, paralysis, and life-threatening infections
If you feel that you have been a victim of medical misconduct, a Brooklyn medical malpractice lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer will work hard on your behalf to prove your case and recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
How Malpractice Happens
Medical malpractice claims can be filed for many different reasons. For example, perhaps you had surgery and a doctor left an instrument in your body, or maybe your infant child was injured during childbirth. Perhaps a doctor misdiagnosed your illness, leaving you in its advanced stages with minimal treatment options. These mistakes can lead to serious, life-threatening situations for patients.
Common reasons for seeking help from a Brooklyn medical malpractice lawyer include all of the following:
- Undiagnosed illness
- Misdiagnosis (being diagnosed with the wrong illness)
- Surgical errors, such as surgery being performed on the wrong organ or patient
- Prescription errors, such as wrong medication, severe interactions, or incorrect dosage
- Communication error between doctors or others involved in your care
- Birth injury
Who Is at Fault When Medical Malpractice Occurs?
Thousands of medical malpractice claims are brought against healthcare providers every year in the United States. Negligence through misdiagnosis, simple routine procedures, and major surgeries can lead to civil claims against the people you trust to take care of your health.
One or more parties may be responsible, including any of the following:
Compensation for Medical Errors
With the astronomical costs of healthcare today, you could be facing a mountain of debt after a malpractice injury, especially if you are unable to work. Filing a malpractice claim can get you monetary compensation to pay for your medical needs, loss of income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and many other out-of-pocket expenses and non-economic damages.
Malpractice claims are complicated and serious in nature. Not only are thousands or millions of dollars in damages at stake for a healthcare provider, the possibility of losing their medical license is a reality that will make them unwilling to admit fault.
A Brooklyn medical malpractice lawyer from our firm can fight to recover the compensation you are entitled to, regardless of how willing the other side is to negotiate in good faith.
