Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical Malpractice

Errors are made in almost every profession. However, in certain fields like the medical field, even the slightest mistake can have life altering or even fatal consequences. According to recent studies published by the Institute of Medicine, more than 98,000 Americans die each year from preventable medical errors made by hospitals, physicians and other medical professionals.

Although New York law recognizes that a medical professional can make a mistake, this mistake becomes medical malpractice when the care of the patient falls below the expected standard of care and causes the patient’s injury or death. In these types of cases, you may be entitled to compensation. At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, our experienced New York medical malpractice lawyers are dedicated to providing clients who fall victim to medical malpractice the full compensation they deserve.

Definition of Medical Malpractice Under New York Law

Medical malpractice is the negligence or carelessness of a hospital, doctor, or healthcare professional that results in injury to the patient. It can occur in any medical or healthcare field in which injury is caused by medical care that falls below the expected standard of care.

Every health care professional has an ethical and legal duty to provide his or her patient with responsible and safe medical treatment and care. Their choices and decisions are measured against what another medical provider would have done in a similar situation.

Common Causes of Medical Malpractice

While some patients are simply injured due to a medical error that was not caused by a negligent act, others are harmed as a result of preventable medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can range from acts of gross recklessness to simple acts of negligence by well-respected physicians who were momentarily negligent in their treatment.

Some of the most common types of medical malpractice that our New York medical malpractice lawyers handle include:

  • Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose a serious disease or illness
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failing to provide proper treatment in a timely manner
  • Prescribing the wrong medication or dosage
  • Misinterpretation of lab results
  • Failure to order necessary lab tests
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injury errors
  • Cerebral palsy or Erb’s palsy that was caused by medical malpractice

Regardless of what type of medical malpractice caused your injuries, you have a right to compensation from the negligent or reckless healthcare professional or facility. At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, our legal team will aggressively fight for your rights and ensure that you get the full financial recovery you are entitled to.

My son was born prematurely, and I trusted the doctors and hospital to get him through the first few weeks and out of danger. The doctors made some mistakes in their procedures and my son is now injured for life because of their mistakes. I didn't... know what to do. I hired Ken Wilhelm's law office because I heard from someone that Ken Wilhelm is the best. He and his attorneys held the hospital responsible for their errors. We received a very large settlement. It doesn't fix my son's suffering but I feel that my attorneys helped me get what my family deserved for our hardship.read more
