New York Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Medical professionals are trusted with your most important asset: your health.
We expect doctors and health care workers to do their best, but unfortunately there are times when patients are injured because they received treatment that was below the accepted standard of care.
When medical practitioners breech the duty of care they owe to their patients and that breech results in injury, it’s called medical malpractice.
Thousands of incidents of medical malpractice happen every year. It has been estimated that close to 100,000 deaths are caused by preventable medical errors each year. Most malpractice appears to be committed by a small percentage of doctors. The National Practitioner Data Bank shows that just 5% of doctors are responsible for 54% of payments on malpractice cases.
Medical Malpractice can occur in many ways. Malpractice can be the result of a failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis. Failing to properly treat a patient or giving improper treatment can also amount to medical malpractice. Surgical errors and other negligent treatment may also be malpractice.
Misdiagnosis can happen a number of different ways. Failing to ask important questions or to recognize the need to refer the patient to a specialist can lead to a misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose. When a diagnosis is missed, a disease or condition can get worse. Illness may spread, diminishing the chance for a cure and causing significant harm.
Failing to recognize a condition or problem can also be a cause of malpractice.
This is frequently seen in birth injury cases where there is a failure to recognize the need for a cesarean section, a failure to properly read fetal monitor strips. In those cases the failure to recognize a danger to the unborn child can result in serious, lifelong injury.
Surgical errors can occur in many ways, including failing to recognize and repair injury to an organ, leaving behind a surgical tool or item inside of the patient, or incorrectly performing surgery and causing injury.
Medical negligence frequently results in permanent injury or even wrongful death.
