Medical negligence, also known as medical malpractice, involves actions or inactions by a doctor that no other reasonable doctor would have taken in similar circumstances. Doctors do not have to be perfect but they do have to be competent. The rules in New York require that in most cases before a doctor can be sued, another doctor has rendered an opinion that the offending doctor’s conduct fell below an acceptable standard of care. When a doctor falls below the standard of care and causes injuries, that doctor must pay money compensation for the harms that he or she has caused. Doctors frequently protect themselves from losses by having malpractice insurance.

Have I got a case?
An experienced lawyer will be able in most situations to quickly ascertain if your claim or case is worth pursuing. Then you must decide on a course of action.
What will it cost me?
You will not pay a lawyer’s fee to our firm in an injury case unless there is a recovery and then only out of that recovery.
Are there deadlines?
Most personal injury claims in New York must be pursued in court within three years. But there are exceptions and shorter time frames that apply in some cases. So, since you’ve read this far, it is best to call us right away.
Will I have to go to court?
As experienced trial lawyers we know that some cases must go to trial. But most do not.
What is my case worth?
Experienced lawyers know that the value of a claim or case cannot be fairly assessed until medical records of the injury are thoroughly reviewed by the lawyer.
What can I expect from my first appointment?
A lawyer from our office will come to your home for the first visit if you need that. At that time you will be asked to provide information that is readily available to you. You do not need to chase items or do research.
