What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider, such as a doctor or hospital, fails to follow the accepted standard of medical care for his or her field of medicine. All medical professionals and health care providers have an ethical and legal obligation to give every patient responsible and safe treatment and care. Their choices and decisions are measured against what another physician or medical professional would have done in the same situation.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, bad results sometimes happen after medical treatment that is simply no one’s fault. However, there are also many instances when a bad outcome is the result of medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice can range from the acts of grossly reckless doctors and health care providers to the acts of well-respected doctors who were momentarily negligent in their treatment. Some of the most common forms of medical malpractice in New York 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 injuries
Regardless of what type of medical malpractice caused your injuries, you have a right to recover against the negligent medical provider. Our Queens medical malpractice lawyers will aggressively fight to get you the compensation that you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.
