Top New York Medical Malpractice Attorneys
It’s everyone’s worst nightmare. The doctor fails to notice a critical symptom. A nurse administers the wrong medicine. As a result, the patient suffers physically and financially because of these unnecessary mistakes. These are examples of medical malpractice. Medical negligence can have devastating consequences. A medical mistake can cause death, or life-long injury, not to the mention the sky-high cost of medical bills these days for even small things.
You should be able to approach any doctor, nurse, or other medical practitioner and expect competence. When a person holds himself or herself out as a medical professional, they have agreed to guarantee a certain level of knowledge and ability. Our attorneys believe in protecting this trust. Just as an incompetent lawyer ought to be held accountable, incompetent medical professionals should be held accountable.
Most medical professionals are required to carry some type of insurance. Often times, it really doesn’t make financial sense to sue people with little money because they won’t be able to pay any judgment you would get. However, the insurance policy ensures the medical professional is not “judgment proof.”

Other medical cases will have strict liability. If a medical product fails to perform as specified, the manufacturer or others in the supply chain may be held strictly liable. In strict liability cases, the plaintiff only has to prove injury since it can be extraordinarily difficult for a plaintiff to prove which part of the supply chain is responsible for the error in the product. There are so many suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers to determine where things went wrong. Therefore, the law assumes there was negligence at some point. If a medical product has injured you, our litigation attorney can help you get compensation for your injury.
