5 Important Steps To Take If You Are a Victim of Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice LawyerYou may become the victim of medical malpractice if the actions of your healthcare provider caused you additional injuries or damages. Fortunately, the majority of doctors and other healthcare professionals do not generally engage in negligent or reckless actions that may ultimately result in injury to their patients. However, of the minority of healthcare practitioners whose actions amount to medical malpractice, the resulting injuries or damages to the patients may be significant.

What To Do:

If you suspect that you have been the victim of medical malpractice, you need to take certain important steps to protect your legal rights, including:

  1. Conduct a thorough review of your case. Your attorney will generally conduct the investigation at the outset of the case in order to determine whether your case is actionable.
  2. Document your injuries by keeping a journal of the accident, your injuries and any follow-up care you may need.
  3. Gather all relevant documents necessary in proving your claim.
  4. Continue to get medical attention as needed for the additional injuries or damages you have sustained.
  5. Contact an experienced New York medical malpractice attorney who specializes in handling these types of cases as soon as possible.

In the State of New York, you usually only have 2.5 years from the negligent act or omission of the healthcare professional to bring a medical malpractice claim. While this may seem like ample time, it can take time your attorney time to fully investigate the facts and to ultimately bring a claim. As such, it is important to immediately contact an attorney.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
