Malpractice Law is designed to protect patients from negligent medical practices.
Negligence is defined as failure to exercise due care. It can include an error in diagnosis, treatment, or illness management. When concerning the doctor-patient relationship, this can often result in major health issues and if the doctor can be found negligent, then he or she is held responsible.
There is a statute of limitations on malpractice suits (a time limit upon which you can file the suit) which means the timely fashion in which an individual deals with a malpractice suit is essential.
Malpractice suits are often complex and quite costly to win. A good NY Medical Malpractice attorney can help you with getting your grievance filed as soon as possible and can show you the best options for your individual situation.
