What You Need to Know About Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim
Our malpractice attorney will first make sure that you do in fact have a claim. We have to prove that your damages can from a medical care professional who acted negligently. We thoroughly investigate your case to make sure we are holding all of the right people accountable.
Depending on what happened to you, you can bring a claim against the staff of an ER, the nurse who was caring for you, the surgeon who performed on you, a pharmacist, a doctor, and so on. Sometimes we file claims against entire hospitals or their administrators. Again, this is all based on what happened to you. For example, if you had a tool left in your abdomen after surgery, we are going to look at the surgery team to see who is liable. According to The High Court, 48% of medical malpractice cases are against more than one person.
Holding the Liable Party Accountable
We handle malpractice cases for a variety of medical errors such as birth injuries, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, etc.
A large part of our job is determining who is at fault so that we know who to bring the claim against to get you the compensation you deserve. We hold them accountable for damages such as lost wages, medical expenses, temporary or permanent loss of work, etc. We also account for the emotional and mental damages that you suffer from such as pain and suffering. We know that money damages cannot bring back your emotional wellbeing, but this is one of the ways we hold the liable party accountable.
We need to adhere to the statute of limitations for medical malpractice, so acting quickly after you suspect that you are a victim is crucial. If this were an injury case, you would be allowed three years from the date of the accident. However, in New York State, you are only given two and a half years from the date of the malpractice for a medical malpractice claim. There are extensions to this particular statute only if you did not discover right away that you were a victim of malpractice.
