NYC Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When healthcare providers fail in their duty, people get hurt. If you’ve been injured in this way, an NYC medical malpractice lawyer can help you recover financial compensation for what’s been done to you.

You have the right to expect your doctor to take your health every bit as seriously as you do. When a healthcare professional causes you an injury—whether through direct action or inaction—this is known as medical malpractice. Similar to a personal injury lawsuit, a medical malpractice suit allows you to seek compensation for the damages and losses you suffer because of the healthcare provider’s negligence.

This almost always means getting your financial compensation from an insurance company, however—which is no easy task. Rather than providing you with the money you need to recover in full, their goal is to get you to settle for the lowest amount possible. An NYC medical malpractice lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can ensure that you get treated fairly and receive the largest settlement available.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

Before filing, you’ll first need to know if you have grounds for a case. Medical malpractice takes many forms, but in essence, any harm you experience because of your doctor’s negligence could qualify. Negligence is the key. If the doctor did everything possible to help you and acted correctly, but your health deteriorated due to your already-existing condition, this would most likely not qualify.

Your NYC medical malpractice lawyer will investigate what happened and inform you of your odds for a successful conclusion to your case. Described below are just a few examples of healthcare provider negligence that would qualify as malpractice:

  • Failure to diagnose a condition
  • Birth injury inflicted to the mother or infant
  • Leaving a foreign object in the patient’s body during surgery
  • Prescribing a drug that has a negative interaction with another medication the patient is taking

Financial Compensation for Medical Malpractice

Like a personal injury lawsuit, filing a medical malpractice claim will allow you to seek monetary restitution for your injuries and the expenses and losses they have caused you. An NYC medical malpractice lawyer from our firm will work with you to uncover all of the ways that your life has been negatively impacted. Some of these will be obvious, while others will be less so:

  • Expenses related to current and future medical care, such as medication and medical devices
  • Lost wages and income due to being unable to work
  • Transportation expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Decreased quality of life

New York Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice

You only have a limited amount of time to file a claim seeking a financial settlement, so it’s important to act quickly. In New York, you have two and a half years from the date that the malpractice is identified in which to file. If your case is one where an object was left in your body, the situation is slightly different. In these circumstances, you have one year from the time that your condition is discovered.
