Medical Malpractice Attorney in NYC
Everyone makes mistakes. However, when a doctor, nurse, or other health care provider makes a mistake, the results can be devastating. Our firm has seen horrific and irreversible results from the most minor of health care decisions or medical procedures, consequences that may or may not be immediately identified. You don’t always know there’s been a medical mistake at the time that it happens. Under medical malpractice law, medical errors legally become medical negligence, or malpractice, when the error falls below the “accepted standard of care” in the community where the doctor, or other providers, is located. Medical negligence cases, or malpractice, allow money damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other types of compensation. Medical malpractice attorneys work with victims and their families in pursuing claims both in and out of the courtroom to ensure that their medical malpractice remedies under current New York law are promptly identified and demanded. Medical malpractice, which is sometimes referred to as medical negligence, is a legal term used to define substandard care by a health care provider. If you have been a victim of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Please contact New York medical malpractice attorney Mark L. Bodner, P.C. for your free consultation.

Do you have a case of medical malpractice?
When there is an unfortunate result, it is important to know if medical malpractice is involved. If it is, you and your loved ones may have a legal claim for justice under New York malpractice laws. For some families, it is very clear that an error in health care has taken place, or that a routine procedure has turned into a fatal injury. Some malpractice mistakes are obvious to everyone.
Regrettably, medical malpractice lawyers have also experienced situations where claims were not immediately recognized. Occurrences of medical malpractice are not always obvious to the average person. For example, an illness or injury may appear sometime after childbirth or surgery but no one in the family suspects a connection between the two.
However, an experienced medical malpractice attorney and appropriate medical experts can conduct a thorough analysis of the case. Together, they can determine whether or not there is medical malpractice. It is therefore very important that any suspicion of medical error, no matter how remote, be investigated.
Are You or a Loved One a Victim of Medical Malpractice?
There can be no clear answer to this question, in many instances. Unless the medical error is obvious, an expert in medical care will need to help you determine whether or not there may have been a serious medical error in the eyes of health care experts and whether New York law will consider this error to be medical malpractice for which you may receive compensation.
