Medical Malpractice Claims in NYC

When we seek medical treatment, we assume the tests performed and treatment will lead to improved health.  However, medical errors and negligence health care professionals can cause significant injury and even death. If you have suffered because of these circumstances, contact Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP today to explore your legal options for compensation.

What is a Medical Malpractice Claim?

A medical malpractice claim can be filed for a range of errors or a failure to provide the accepted standard of care. Some of the most common medical malpractice cases involve:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delay in diagnosis
  • Surgical error
  • Prescription errors
  • Medication errors
  • Pregnancy and childbirth errors leading to injury

When a doctor misdiagnoses an illness or condition it will result in the wrong treatment, as the actual medical problem worsens. Misdiagnosis of cancer, heart attack, or other serious condition may result in death, in which case specific family members can file a wrongful death claim due to medical negligence.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Surgical Errors

Errors in surgery can cause life-altering repercussions. Some surgical errors that could warrant filing a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit. Our law firm is equipped to handle every type of surgical error, including:

  • Organ puncture or perforation, including bowel perforation
  • Spinal cord injuries in surgery
  • Failed cataract surgery
  • Gastric bypass malpractice
  • Nerve injury during surgery
  • Contra-indicated or unnecessary surgeries
  • Surgery performed incorrectly
  • Failure in surgical planning leading to complications
  • Medication errors
  • An incision in the wrong location
  • Surgical items left within the body after surgery
  • Surgery on the wrong body part
  • A surgical procedure performed on the wrong patient
  • Hospital-borne infections

Failure to Diagnose

When doctors fail to diagnose cancer, heart attacks or other life-threatening illnesses, people lose the valuable time they need to fight the disease. We represent clients who have suffered additional injury or death due to this failure.

Birth injuries

Birth injuries can prevent a child from ever reaching his or her potential in life. Our law firm will help you and your child get the financial compensation necessary to live as complete a life as possible. We serve children and injured mothers in the full range of situations, including:

Medication Errors

Pharmacists, physicians and others involved in dispensing and providing medication must take great care in their duties. When these parties fail, the results can be catastrophic.

Anesthesia Errors

Whenever a patient “goes under” in surgery, it is vital that anesthesiologists and other professionals closely monitor the patient. The failure to do so can result in significant harm. Our lawyers hold these negligent medical professionals accountable for their failures.

Hospital Negligence

Hospitals owe a duty to every patient who presents for their care. When hospitals do not live up to that responsibility, patients are the ones to suffer. All too often, patients suffer infections or other serious injury due to hospital neglect. Our law firm takes on these facilities for their negligence.

 

Delayed Diagnosis

For certain illnesses and conditions, a delay in diagnosis can be fatal. Failing to quickly and correctly diagnose a patient who is suffering from the symptoms of a heart attack can be fatal – but it happens. Doctors are humans and they make mistakes. In an emergency room situation, the stress is high, and a doctor may fail to order the appropriate tests or could send a patient who is in dire need of medical intervention home to rest. A delayed cancer diagnosis will allow cancer to advance to a point where it may be impossible to treat.

Medical Malpractice and Negligence

Various healthcare professionals may commit an act of negligence in treating a condition, including pediatricians, oncologists, orthopedic specialists, general surgeons, or others. Others who may prescribe, administer, or dispense medications may have made an error, such as nurses, anesthesiologists or pharmacy technicians who dispense or administer medications could be to blame for a serious medical error that causes serious harm to a patient.

The first step in our process at Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP is to identify what went wrong, and who was responsible. In some cases, a hospital may have failed in the duty to maintain a high level of sanitation, resulting in a serious or deadly hospital-borne infection or other health risks.

The harms to patients due under hospital care are reported at the lower limits to be in the range of between 210,000 and 400,000 preventable deaths per year – a problem of epidemic proportions. This number does not include those who survived the error but are living with the consequences of the error.
