When you go to the hospital or seek medical attention, you are placing your trust and well-being in the hands of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. Most of the time, these people diagnose aliments correctly, provide the best possible care and offer treatments to the best of their abilities. Unfortunately, in certain cases, the negligence or misconduct of doctors and other health care providers can lead to injury or death.
Let us put our more than 50 years of legal experience to work for you. We charge no fees unless we recover and will come to you if you are unable to come to our office.
Held To A Higher Standard: Understanding Medical Malpractice
Our team of medical malpractice lawyers at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP has seen firsthand the damages caused by negligent health care providers. For many families, the physical, psychological and financial hardships caused by a botched procedure, incorrect diagnoses or utter lack of care is a burden that no amount of compensation can ease. Still, we have helped numerous individuals and families secure compensation, ease their burden and ensure that negligent doctors and nurses are held accountable.
Medical professionals are obligated to provide a certain standard of care to their patients. When that standard is breached, they can and should be held responsible for their actions. When we take your case, we will work with medical experts, investigate the circumstances surrounding your claim and use our knowledge and skill to build a strong claim for any of the following:
- Emergency room errors
- Surgical errors
- Medication errors
- Birth injuries
- Misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose
- Failure to monitor
- Premature release from the hospital
- Dental malpractice
- Anesthesia error
- Nursing home abuse
- Wrongful death
Our team of trial attorneys is prepared to handle the most complex medical malpractice lawsuits. For example, the insurance companies will not resolve a lawsuit with the plaintiff unless the doctor in question consents to the settlement. This is a significant barrier to resolving claims in New York because if the doctor does not consent, the insurance company cannot settle the case. Many of these cases end up going to trial, which is why it is important to work with a firm that has proven litigation experience.
