Incidents of medical malpractice happen all too often in hospitals, laboratories, and doctors’ offices. The most common types of medical malpractice are medical negligence, misdiagnosis, hospital errors, and birth injuries.

  • Medical Negligence can occur when doctors or other healthcare providers fail to recognize how serious patients’ symptoms are and do not treat them accordingly, when they do not monitor patients’ conditions properly, or when they do not communicate properly with patients about test results or treatment options.
  • Misdiagnosis is a particular kind of negligence. If a doctor does not order the right tests or if the results of a test are incorrect or misinterpreted, a patient’s illness or condition could be missed entirely or misdiagnosed.  If misdiagnosed, diseases that could have been treated effectively can progress and become difficult to treat or even fatal.
  • Hospital Negligence occurs when surgeons and anesthesiologists make mistakes in the operating room or patients are not well cared for following surgery.  Negligence also occurs in emergency rooms, when patient records get mixed up, when medication mistakes are made, and when communication between doctors, nurses, labs, and pharmacists is unclear, inaccurate, or incomplete.
  • Birth Injuries can be related to the improper handling of issues before, during, or after delivery. These include issues related to medication, the interpretation of obstetric ultrasound studies, ordering a C-section when necessary, using forceps properly, or in any way causing injuries to the baby during delivery.

NYC’s Premier Medical Malpractice Attorneys

New York Medical malpractice attorneys file cases when a doctor, hospital or nurse, does something or fails to do something that violates the applicable standard of care. New York law mandates that every patient within its borders is entitled to good and accepted care that falls within the standards developed and maintained by doctors and nurses. The law recognizes that it is the health care providers, and not lawyers, who set the standard of care; but once a standard is developed, the responsibility falls on the providers to deliver standard and not sub-standard care.

In order for a patient to receive monetary damages in a medical malpractice case, it is not enough to simply prove a deviation or departure from care – the plaintiff must also prove that the negligence was a substantial cause of the claimed injury.

The burden of proof falls on the plaintiff to prove in court that a standard existed at the time of treatment, and that the doctor’s action or inaction fell below the proven standard. In most every case, the patient must produce an expert to swear that she is familiar with what good and accepted care is required, and that the defendant provided substandard care. Once this threshold is crossed, the expert can then give an opinion that the patient’s injuries were a direct consequence of the negligence.
