Am I the Victim of Medical Malpractice?

medical malpracticeYou seek medical care to prevent illnesses or get treatment for an existing medical condition. Unfortunately, some healthcare professionals do not uphold their standards of care, resulting in injury or death to their patient. In such cases, the injured patient may be entitled to monetary compensation for their medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, emotional damages or any other out of pocket costs they may incur as a result of the medical negligence.

Have I Been the Victim of Medical Malpractice?

Determining whether you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice is not easy. If you have suspicions that you may be a victim, it is best to seek out legal help and know your rights. Medical malpractice generally happens when your healthcare professional acted in a manner that was not consistent with normal standards.

Below are ten questions you can ask yourself to determine if you may have been the victim of medical malpractice:

1. Did you or a family member suffer a severe or permanent injury while under the care of a physician, hospital or other health care provider?

2. Did your physician keep information from you about your condition or fail to diagnose your condition, or fail to tell you about a surgical risk that caused your injury?

3. Did your insurance company question certain procedures, tests or diagnoses, thereby delaying treatment or keeping you from getting appropriate surgery?

4. Did your physician delay treatment by failing to test and/or diagnose a disease in a timely manner?

5. Did your physician cause an injury to you or your baby during childbirth?

6. Did you take prescription medication that caused an injury?

7. Did you suffer injury because the equipment used during surgery or treatment was faulty, broken or handled improperly?

8. Did your condition worsen because your physician failed to refer you to a specialist?

9. Did your physician fail to follow up on an abnormal test result or order a proper test in a timely manner?

10. Did your condition worsen because you were discharged too early from a hospital or your physician stopped your treatment too soon?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be valuable to speak with a NYC medical malpractice attorney.

Client Testimonials

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
