Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Long Island
Identifying Negligent Medical Professionals
Medical malpractice is the improper, unskilled, negligent or omitted treatment of a patient by their assigned physician or other health care provider. Medical malpractice can occur when a doctor neglects to take standard measures to properly diagnose and treat a patient, when a nurse fails to use safe sanitizing techniques, when a pharmacist does not properly instruct a patient on how their prescription is to be taken, and more. When you go to a doctor's office, hospital, dentist's office or other medical professional, you have a right to expect a certain level of professional expertise. In fact, we rely on the medical profession to know what needs to be medically done and to do it.
As is true of any profession, accidents can happen. When a medical professional causes an injury, or death, because of their irresponsibility, outright negligence or intentional neglect of their patient, it can leave the patient with life-threatening or debilitating, life-long injuries. In such cases the patient may require long-term, costly medical treatments and care. That is why if you or a loved one has sustained a serious injury you suspect is as a result of medical malpractice, you need to contact a Long Island personal injury lawyer from our firm at once. Our Long Island personal injury attorneys can thoroughly review your case, analyze all medical records, do further investigations into the medical professional and facility, advise you of your legal options, and help you determine how best to proceed.
Areas of Practice
Birth injuries can occur to either mother or child during the birthing process. While natural, unpreventable occurrences are capable of causing birth injuries, improper safety precautions, lack of training, a failure to quickly respond to the distress of the child, and more are all potential instances of medical malpractice which can lead to devastatingly serious injuries or fatalities.
There are numerous situations which can cause brain injuries. In cases where you suspect the brain injury occurred as a result of a medical professional's neglect, lack of training, incompetence, or outright intent to harm, you need to contact an attorney from our firm so that we can provide you with the legal representation you deserve.
Failure to Diagnose
We rely on medical professionals to know their job and professionally carry out the duties of that job. In fact, lives depend on it. When a medical professional's inattention, neglect or incompetence results in their failure to diagnose, and thus properly treat a patient's medical condition in a timely manner, the results can be disastrous, and constitutes a breach of duty.
A large quantity of medical malpractice suits occur as a result of medical errors. While any professional can make a mistake or error, the errors made by medical professionals can cost someone their life. Not following proper procedures, prescribing the wrong medication, mixing up medical charts, administering an improper dose of medication, and surgical errors are types of medical errors which can leave a patient with life-altering injuries or ultimately cause their death.
We rely on doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to provide a certain level of medical care. In cases where a medical professional has failed to uphold their obligation to their patient and provide them with the proper diagnosis, treatment and care in alignment with accepted medical standards, they may be guilty of medical negligence.
A misdiagnosis can be just as deadly or disastrous as a failure to diagnose. When the medical professional you have entrusted to properly diagnose and help treat your medical condition, fails to do so because of their lack of training, inattentiveness, or some other reason, you can be left with a debilitating or life-threatening illness.
One of the most common forms of medical malpractice comes from medication errors. We count on doctors, pharmaceutical staff and other medical professionals to be responsible for the proper prescription and administration of medication. An incorrect dose or administration of the wrong medication can cause serious and sometimes permanent damage.
