Common Times When You Need a Medical Malpractice Lawyer in New York
Our accident lawyers in New York have more than 20 years of experience handling all types of personal injury suits, including many medical malpractice cases. Most of these don’t involve life or death situations, but nonetheless can lead to very serious health complications. Some common types of cases we handle include:
- Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose – Because of the hectic, stressful conditions present in emergency rooms, doctors are somewhat prone to making inaccurate diagnoses, or no diagnosis at all. This can lead to serious health complications, or even death.
- Surgical Errors – These errors can include administering the wrong type or amount of anesthesia, making an incorrect incision, or accidentally damaging your body. At the very least, these errors result in serious health complications. At their worst, they can cause damage that is impossible to repair, and possibly even death.
- Failure to Treat – This type of medical malpractice can involve actions such as discharging a patient before he or she is fully treated, failing to re-evaluate the patient, or failing to refer the patient to a specialized medical professional for further evaluation.
- Prescription Drug Errors – Medication errors do occur at all types of medical facilities, not only when a doctor makes a mistake in writing your prescription. Pharmacies and long-term care facilities may also erroneously prescribe the wrong type or amount of medication, which can cause serious health issues or even death.
