New York Medical Malpractice Lawyers

No one expects their doctor, nurse or healthcare provider to be the cause of further injury. However, an average of 17.3 medical malpractice claims are paid per 1,000 physicians each year in New York. These cases are particularly common in New York’s urban areas including New York City’s Inwood-Washington Heights neighborhood, the Bronx, as well as more populated Hudson Valley towns such as Newburgh and Poughkeepsie.

Fortunately, filing a medical malpractice lawsuit allows patients to receive compensation for damages caused by neglect from a healthcare professional. Settlements won from medical malpractice cases can help injured victims by paying for:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages from time spent out of work
  • Corrective treatments and surgeries needed due to neglectful practices
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • And other damages.
