Our NYC medical malpractice lawyers hold doctors and other healthcare providers accountable for errors
No matter what type of malpractice occurred in your case, our dedicated medical malpractice attorneys in New York City have the resources to identify the negligent parties. We handle cases relating to all types of medical misconduct, including:
- Surgical errors — When you undergo surgery, there is no way for you to determine if mistakes were made during the procedure. Our lawyers conduct thorough discovery and call upon medical experts when necessary to prove that a surgical error occurred.
- Diagnosis problems — The failure to diagnose a medical condition can have serious, even fatal, consequences. We will demonstrate the harm that you suffered because of a poor or missed diagnosis.
- Emergency room mistakes — The chaotic nature of an emergency room often leads to oversights and substandard care, including the failure to properly administer anesthesia. Regardless of the specific condition, we will investigate to see if professional standards were violated.
- Birth injuries — Treatment during childbirth requires great sensitivity because one mistake can trigger irreparable harm in an infant. In these cases, we detail the full extent of damages incurred by the child and their family.
- Dental nerve injuries — Can occur after a botched implant or extraction procedure, dental nerve injuries can lead to severe and enduring nerve pain. Our dental malpractice lawyers work diligently to hold the responsible parties liable for their carelessness.
