Experienced Representation For Complex Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice is always unfortunate. An individual is injured by the very person or facility that they are counting on to restore them to health. Doctors and hospitals often make inflammatory claims that these types of lawsuits are increasing and are frivolous. Sadly, with most medical malpractice cases, there is nothing frivolous about them. All too often, an individual is left with serious and potentially life-long injuries due to the negligence of a doctor, nurse, hospital or other medical professional.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

The technical definition of malpractice in New York involves the failure of a doctor or nurse to provide the standard of care that an average doctor or nurse of their type and experience. When this failure causes harm to a patient, they can be found liable for their negligence. This is often a complex determination, requiring careful examination of the fact and circumstance of an incident. It usually calls for expert medical testimony, extended discovery, depositions of medical personal and detailed analysis of hospital's or medical facility's procedures. Our attorney, at Premo Law Firm PLLC, has been handling these cases for more than three decades.

Not Just Doctors

While individual doctors often make mistakes, another cause of medical errors and mistakes can be hospital procedures and practices. Hospitals and the health care systems that many are part of are frequently focused on their profitability.

Cutting corners, staff and any other cost is a priority, and sometimes it's the patients who pay the ultimate price. Mistakes in surgery, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose critical conditions or diseases, misprescribed medication or lax or absent supervision can all lead to severe and sometimes fatal results.

Statues Of Limitations

While you do not want to settle any potential medical malpractice too quickly or before you have consulted an experienced attorney, you shouldn't wait too long. Statutes of limitations are often of short duration, failing to file a lawsuit before the end of the limitation period will prevent you from ever being able to recover damages for those injuries. Our attorney can look at your case and ensure that your claims are made inside those deadlines.
