Harmed Through Medical Malpractice? Contact Greenberg Law P.C.
When a patient seeks medical care or advice from a provider, they assume the treatment will make them feel better, not worse. Medical malpractice by a doctor – or anyone on a medical team – can lead to death or permanent injury, more treatment and expensive medical bills, possibly for the rest of the victim’s life.
The best medical malpractice trial lawyers have a deep understanding of the medicine involved and are able to convey that information to a jury. Greenberg Law P.C. has been the firm of many medical malpractice plaintiffs in successful lawsuits in New York. We also take cases in New Jersey and Connecticut.
Examples Of Malpractice
As patients and family members, we search for the best doctors and specialists to treat our loved ones and ourselves, but even the most experienced medical professionals with the most impressive degrees sometimes make negligent errors in treating patients. Medical malpractice can include the following errors or failures to provide the accepted standard of care:
- Delay in diagnosis
- Surgical error
- Prescription error
- Emergency room (ER) error
- Medication error
- Prenatal care deficiencies and obstetrical errors resulting in birth injury
Medical malpractice lawsuits are often more complicated than other personal injury matters, as there may be multiple parties responsible, including different doctors, nurses and specialists as well as any affiliated hospitals or groups.
Why It Is Important To Act Promptly
The statute of limitations (deadline) to file a medical malpractice claim in New York state is 2 1/2 years from the date of the alleged negligent action or omission that caused the patient’s injury. This deadline can be confusing to calculate when the treatment was ongoing or the diagnosis was made by various treaters. Furthermore, researching a medical malpractice case is time-consuming.
It is critical that you consult a knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer who can determine the statute of limitations and bring a timely claim on your behalf.
