Trust your medical malpractice case with an experienced attorney

When you seek care from your medical provider, you have the right to expect reasonable care and professionalism, as well as a health care provider who has knowledge and expertise required to deliver competent medical care. Unfortunately, that's not always the case.

Healthcare providers who cause patients to suffer permanent, disabling
injury or death need to be held accountable for those errors. Types of malpractice cases we handle include:

  • Delay in diagnosing a medical condition or cancer
  • Failing to diagnose a medical condition or cancer
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Surgical errors during an operation
  • Objects left behind after surgery
  • Birth injury, including Cerebral Palsy and brain damage
  • Prescription drug errors
  • Misuse of a medical device or implant.

Women's Health Areas

We recognize that certain injuries affect women in their careers, caring for their families, and their health. Some common medical malpractice cases with women include.

  • Delayed diagnosis of heart attacks
  • Surgeries for bladder contro
  • Cervical cancer misdiagnosis
  • Birth injuries to the mother
  • Injuries to the placenta during pregnancy
  • Birth injuries to children
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Delayed diagnosis of breast cancer
  • Unnecessary hysterectomies

If you have been seriously or catastrophically injured as a result of a doctor, health care provider, or a hospital's failure to give you competent medical care - you should talk with one of our attorneys right away.

 

Beware of injuries due to medication errors

Medications are a necessary part of protecting us from illness and disease. But, medications can also cause harmful and debilitating reactions if not used, prescribed, or dispensed properly. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reports that nearly 1 in 10 computerized prescriptions contain an error, some of which can be deadly.

If you have suffered a harmful reaction to a prescription medication, either because of the medication itself, the physician who prescribed it or the pharmacy that filled the prescription, we can protect your rights and pursue legal action to compensate you for an injury.

If you have suffered a harmful reaction to a medication while a patient in a hospital, we can protect your rights and pursue legal action to compensation you for your injury.

Don't wait until it's too late

The time period to bring a lawsuit against a medical provider or hospital in most cases is two and a half years. However, if the medical malpractice results from a municipal or government run and operated hospital, such as SUNY Upstate and Community General Hospital, the time limits are much shorter - you have only 90 days to protect yourself.

The Veteran's Administration Hospital has it's own set of rules and timelines that must be followed. If you are a victim of malpractice that occurred at the VA, don't lose your rights to compensation because you didn't file the proper forms in time. Consulting with an attorney, as soon as possible, will protect your rights.
