Long Island Medical Malpractice Attorney

Millions of Americans suffer injuries and complications as the result of medical malpractice. It is now estimated that nearly every person will experience an episode of medical negligence at least once in their lifetime.

A misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a health concern can lead to devastating injuries. These injuries could include infections, a spreading disease, physical or mental trauma, and many others. Although incorrect opinions are very common in today’s healthcare system, a slip of the scalpel can be deadly and thousands of men and women suffer adverse effects as the result of an operating error.

Medical Malpractice By The Numbers

Medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of death in the United States today. Only heart disease and cancer claim more American lives. Unfortunately, the number of those affected by medical errors continues to rise. In total, medical malpractice results in roughly 225,000 deaths each year:

-12,000 due to unnecessary surgery

-80,000 after complications or infections following a surgery

-7,000 from medical errors

-20,000 attributed to ‘other’ errors

-106,000 result from adverse health effects of prescribed medications

The newest research shows that these statistics could be conservative and millions more suffer injuries as the result of health care errors.

In addition to operation and diagnosic errors, medical malpractice is often associated with child births. Your family could be owed significant compensation due to a doctor’s or obstetrician’s negligence:

-Failing to diagnose a contagious disease

-Failing to identify ectopic pregnancies

-Failing to diagnose a medical condition

-Failing to recognize birth defects

Last year, nearly $700 million were awarded to victims in New York State alone.

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.
