Litigation and Courts

Medical Malpractice

Although doctors are not insurers or guarantors of a good result, many times medical practitioners deviate from the accepted standard of medical care.   When this happens, you may be entitled to commence a medical malpractice lawsuit.  Medical malpractice cases are complex in nature and require your attorneys not just to know the law, but also the medicine.   As part of a medical malpractice lawsuit, we can help you to recover payment for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other losses you experienced.   There are time limitations for commencement of a medical malpractice lawsuit, and, as a general rule, in NYS a person has 2.5 years from date of malpractice to commence a lawsuit.  There are exceptions, such as continuous treatment doctrine, foreign objects, and concealment of malpractice by the medical providers.
