Why Do You Need a Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Long Island?
In general terms, the law defines negligence as when you have a contract or duty to someone and your failure in that duty or contract causes physical harm to that person. In other words you are in a doctor’s care, for example, and you have a reasonable expectation that the doctor will take care of you. Now if the doctor prescribes the wrong medicine for you, even by accident, then that is medical negligence. Negligence is what the court looks at in determining what compensation will be awarded. Negligence can occur in many areas of medical practice and result in many different types of injuries, some even having a permanent effect on someone’s life.
