There is nothing worse than sustaining a serious injury at the hands of a negligent medical professional. Unfortunately, this is something that happens virtually every single day around the country. Though most physicians here in New York City are very talented and responsible individuals, this isn’t always the case. If you were recently harmed as a result of a physician’s negligence, the most important thing you can do is retain the services of a competent medical malpractice lawyer who can help guide you through the claims process. Please continue reading and contact our New York City medical malpractice attorney to learn more about how our legal team can assist you in pursuit of the financial compensation you deserve and need to heal.

Why do I need to hire a medical malpractice lawyer to file a claim?

There are several reasons why you need to hire a medical malpractice lawyer to handle your claim. To start, a medical malpractice lawyer has significant experience negotiating with insurance companies, which is a critical part of attaining the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled. Often, insurance companies offer those who’ve been harmed lowball settlements that don’t cover the extent of their injuries. Additionally, a medical malpractice lawyer will likely have handled cases similar to yours in the past and has a working knowledge of your injury and a potentially rough estimate of what it’s worth. Finally, when you hire a medical malpractice lawyer, you can feel confident that you have a competent and aggressive legal advocate in your corner who truly cares about your future and your right to heal. The bottom line is that if you’ve been hurt, you can depend on us to fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve.

What do I need to do to prove a medical malpractice claim?

To win your medical malpractice claim, you and your attorney are required to prove several things. First, you’ll have to prove that the physician in question was your doctor and owed you a duty of care. You’ll then have to prove that the physician breached his or her duty of care by acting in a way that an otherwise reasonable physician wouldn’t, thereby injuring you and causing you to incur damages as a result. Our firm is prepared to guide you through each phase of the process ahead.
