Brooklyn Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical malpractice cases fall into one of a few categories, such as failure to diagnosis, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and prescription errors. In addition to proving that the doctor made an error, you must be able to prove that the error caused you harm. In addition, there are usually multiple parties involved including the staff and the hospital. Some of the most common medical malpractice cases include:

It is highly important to hire the right attorney if you or a loved one has suffered from medical malpractice in New York. You need an attorney with a lot of experience in these types of cases as they can be difficult to prove without having an in-depth understanding of the various medical procedures. The attorney must also have excellent expert witnesses for these cases to be able to prove that the doctors or nurses or staff should have known that what they did was negligent. Some cases require more than one expert: one to speak to the malpractice, and another to give opinions on the injury caused by the malpractice. Again, these cases are highly technical and require a thorough and knowledgeable attorney.

Some think that the large firms are the ones which will best handle such a complex case as a medical malpractice in New York. But actually, you need just the right attorney. One who will focus on your case as the most important case that they have. Nick Tzanateas is just such attorney and more.

Do you need a medical malpractice lawyer?

In the field of personal injury law, the term medical malpractice is defined as any act or omission by a healthcare professional that deviates from accepted patient treatment practices, and such acts or omissions leads to the injury or death of the patient. Medical malpractice is a specific subset of tort law, dealing with healthcare professional negligence.

There are many potential cases within the broad definition of medical malpractice, including:

  • Failure to diagnose a serious disease such as cancer
  • Delay in diagnosis and treatment of a serious medical condition
  • Erb’s palsy and similar birth/delivery injuries
  • Gynecological malpractice/errors
  • Surgical errors/surgical complications
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Hospital/treatment facility negligence
  • Emergency room errors
  • Medication errors, including wrongly-prescribed medications and overdoses

Medical malpractice cases are often complex, and lawsuits may be difficult to prove as there are many factors that influence case outcomes. Perhaps the biggest obstacle is the set of medical waivers that patients are required to sign when healthcare professionals perform procedures and operations.
