Medical Negligence or Medical Malpractice Lawsuits in NY
Hospitals and physicians are charged by law to provide medical treatment consistent with the standard of care in their profession. If and when a medical professional fails to treat a condition or is responsible for a negligent act or omission, that error can result in a patient’s serious injury or death.
Medical Malpractice and Medical Negligence involves holding a hospital, physician or medical professional to professional standards of care, and pursuing compensation for patients who have become victims, resulting in injury or death.
