New York Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Doctor negligence can occur in many different medical settings. Doctor malpractice cases are most often associated with improperly performed surgeries, cancer misdiagnosis and negligent obstetrical care. However, medical malpractice can also occur as a result of medication errors, failure to properly listen and understand the patient’s signs and symptoms, negligent interpretation of diagnostic tests such as MRI’s, CAT scans or sonograms, or other miscellaneous doctor mistakes.
Under medical malpractice law, medical errors legally become medical negligence, or malpractice, when the error is below the “accepted standard of care” in the community where the doctor, or other provider, is located.
The physician-patient relationship is important and requires clear communication and understanding regarding diagnosis for the appropriate treatment. Oftentimes doctor negligence arises as a result of simply failing to listen to and act upon the patient’s signs and symptoms. Such negligence can cost a patient precious time when seeking the best diagnosis and treatment for their condition. When a doctor or nurse or other health care provider makes a mistake, and does not adhere to the required standard of care, the results can be devastating – and New York law steps in to help victims and their families.
