Brooklyn Medical Malpractice Attorney

When a doctor makes a mistake during diagnosis or treatment, and another reasonably competent doctor would not have made the same mistake, you and your family may have a right to compensation.

Whether injuries or death occurred as the result of an incorrect diagnosis or a slip of the scalpel on the operating table, another doctor may have made the correct call. If this sounds like your situation, you may have a good case for medical malpractice.

At Cellino & Barnes, we’ve hired lawyers who know and understand the complexities of medical malpractice. Our Brooklyn medical malpractice attorneys are former physicians, surgeons, and prosecutors; all of whom have the experience you need to help your family get the best results possible.

Give us a call now for a free consultation by dialing (800) 888-8888 or contact us to speak with an attorney online.

The Statistics

Medical malpractice is considered the third leading cause of death in the United States – only behind heart disease and cancer. In total, an estimated 225,000 Americans are killed each year as a result of medical treatments and mistreatments.

-12,000 deaths due to unnecessary surgery

-7,000 deaths due to medication errors

-20,000 deaths attributed to other hospital errors

-80,000 deaths caused by infections and complications

-106,000 deaths due to negative effects from drugs

Nearly all of these deaths could have been prevented with proper medical and safety guidelines.

In over 90 percent of trials, plaintiffs accused doctors of malpractice that resulted in permanent injury (57%) or death (33%) and each case can be vastly different. Contact a Brooklyn medical malpractice attorney today for a free case evaluation.

What’s Next?

If you or a loved one has been injured due to medical malpractice, contacting an experienced malpractice attorney should be the first step. Our Brooklyn medical malpractice attorneys can thoroughly review the details of your case and connect your family with medical experts, who can prove to be vital advocates in court.

It is important to understand that many states may “cap” the amount of recovery your family can receive as the result of a medical malpractice case. Currently, New York is one of only 15 states that do not limit the amount of compensation a victim receives. However, your case must be filed within two and a half years of the incident.

It is extremely important to act fast and contact an attorney today before the statute of limitations expires on your case.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
