Medical Malpractice Attorneys in New York, New York
Healthcare providers owe a legal duty of care to their patients. Doctors and other medical practitioners must adhere to a standard of reasonable care while performing any acts or procedures that could harm those who are entrusted to their care. That's why medical malpractice can come as such a shock. When health professionals fail to live up to their duties, it can be completely overwhelming for you and your loved ones.
Whether your healthcare provider’s actions or inactions injured you as a result of medical malpractice or negligence, you have legal options. You deserve to pursue compensation for the harm and losses you suffered.
Medical Malpractice, also referred to as medical negligence, is generally defined as professional negligence occurring as the result of an act or omission of an act, by a health care provider, which departs or deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and, as a result, causes injury to the patient. Some of the common reasons for malpractice cases include failure to diagnose or treat, contamination, prescription errors, and performing unnecessary procedures.
