Was It an Unavoidable Mistake or Was it Medical Malpractice?
You or your loved one went to the hospital for surgery or for emergency care. Something happened. Was it just an unfortunate complication, or was a doctor's negligent mistake to blame? You need answers, but can you trust the doctors to tell you the truth?
In any surgery or emergency medical situation, complications sometimes happen. Everybody knows it. The fact that something went wrong at the hospital or doctor's office does not necessarily mean there's reason to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. But doctors and hospitals have specific procedures and standards of care they must follow in order to prevent complications and errors from happening. When they fail to live up to those standards and someone is hurt or dies, we believe they should pay.
Medical malpractice can be defined as any negligence by a physician or health care provider that adversely affects the quality of someone's life. At The Mandel Law Firm, we help people who have been injured or lost a loved one due to negligent medical care. We fight for maximum financial recovery and real justice for victims of medical malpractice in New York City.
These are often complicated cases. Not every attorney has the skill, experience, knowledge, resources, and dedication to stand up and fight against negligent doctors and hospitals. We do. Let us fight for you. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
Helping Medical Malpractice Victims
At The Mandel Law Firm, our lawyers have access to experts in the medical field to fully investigate these cases and determine what happened. We handle a full range of medical malpractice cases, including:
- Complications after surgical procedures, such as stroke or pulmonary embolism
- Medication errors including overdose, underdose and the administration of contraindicated drugs
- Birth injuries
- Nursing negligence and failure to monitor patients resulting in falls, broken bones or head injuries
Remember, just because you signed a waiver or the hospital says there's no suit, it doesn't mean there isn't one. Hospitals and doctors can't waive their own liability. The consequences of a physician's error or a hospital's negligence can be severe, and many times the result is wrongful death. We work aggressively and tirelessly to pursue maximum compensation for people who have suffered, or lost loved ones, because of medical malpractice.
General Hospital Negligence
Not all personal injury accidents that take place in hospitals are the results of medical malpractice. Many commonplace accidents take place every day, including slip and fall accidents and cases in which a nurse fails to put up the guard rails on a patient's bed, resulting in the patient falling out of bed. These accidents can be every bit as damaging to the lives of victims as instances of medical negligence. If you have suffered any type of personal injury in a hospital or other medical institution, our experienced attorneys are here to help.
