When patients place their lives in the hands of trusted doctors, nurses, and other health care providers and substandard care is administered, patients often suffer serious consequences as a result. Medical personnel are expected to abide by certain standards when caring for patients. Patients may recover damages when doctors, nurses and hospitals negligently treat patients causing serious injury or death.
New York medical malpractice claims are among the most complex types of personal injury cases. Trying to decipher whether one has a valid claim for compensation after being injured by substandard medical care can be intimidating for patients. Many patients incorrectly assume that because they signed consent forms for treatment they have no right to take action if a problem occurs that leaves them damaged. This is not the case. The following are three key considerations for determining whether you may have a valid medical malpractice claim:
• Was the diagnosis or treatment below the standard of care?
• Did serious injuries or death occur because of negligent care?
• Did financial damages, such as loss of income or loss of support result because of those injuries or death?
If one or more of these circumstances is applicable to your case, you may have a valid legal claim for medical malpractice. The medical malpractice lawyers of The Law Firm of Jonathan C. Reiter are available to answer questions about your legal options if you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of the medical care you have received.
