Understanding Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, such as a nurse or doctor, fails in their duty to provide proper care, due to negligence, resulting in further injury, extended illness, or even death. Medical malpractice includes:
- Prescription Errors
- Surgical Errors
- Failure to Diagnose or Delayed Diagnosis
- Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse
- Birth Injuries
- Failure to Obtain Informed Consent
- Use of Defective Products
- Wrongful Death
These are just some examples of medical malpractice. If you have been injured by a healthcare provider and this injury has resulted in long-term suffering, loss of function, or financial distress, contact our medical malpractice lawyers as soon as possible.
Types of Compensation in New York
In some instances, medical malpractice can result in lifelong complications, missed work, and more. New York does not limit the amount you may receive in your case, and you must file your claim within 2.5 years (barring some exceptions where that time period is lengthened for continuous treatment or shortened if you are bringing a claim against a State-owned hospital). If you win your case, you may be compensated for:
- Medical Expenses
- Long-term Medical Care
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Income
- Loss of Future Earning Potential
- Loss of Enjoyment
- Other Related Expenses
In addition to compensatory damages, a jury may award you punitive damages intended to punish the healthcare provider for their actions. This may occur in cases where the provider’s actions were extremely egregious.
