According to a report released by The Institute of Medicine, approximately 98,000 Americans die due to preventable causes each year.  To put this number in a more understandable perspective, this is equivalent to two 737 passenger airplanes crashing per day for an entire year!Everyone makes mistakes, but when it comes to your health, very often your life is at risk.  Because of the serious outcomes at stake, medical professionals must be held accountable for their actions.

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.

How to Decide if You Have Been the Victim and Need a Medical Malpractice Lawyer in New York

Simply stated, you are a victim of medical malpractice if your doctor provides careless or negligent service.  More specifically, if you end up in worse condition when you leave the doctor’s office or hospital, you may have experienced medical malpractice.  If your doctor’s performance falls outside the legally established standards of competence, you may also have experienced medical malpractice.  Unfortunately, if your doctor is rude in his demeanor but otherwise performs his job to a competent level, that does not constitute malpractice.
