Tonsillectomy Complications Leads to Leg Amputation and Lawsuit


Q: Can I sue for medical malpractice over tonsillectomy complications?

When you take your child to the hospital for a tonsillectomy, you expect things to go smoothly, to come home the same day, to feed them a diet of ice cream and see them running around like nothing happened in a day or two. You don’t expect you will need to consult a New York City personal injury attorney. And you never imagine your child would need their leg amputated.

Can You Sue a Doctor for Pain and Suffering?


To bring a successful medical malpractice claim, you must first be able to establish that a medical relationship existed. It must then be proven that the treating medical professional breached his or her duty of care owed to the patient and was, therefore negligent. This negligence, in turn, must have been the direct cause of real harm suffered by the patient.

What Can You Be Compensated for in a Medical Malpractice Claim?


If you or a loved one has been injured due to negligence on the part of a treating medical professional, you may be able to bring a medical malpractice claim seeking compensation for the harm you have suffered. In New York, health care providers have a duty to use reasonable care under the circumstances when treating patients.

To put this another way, they are obligated to uphold a standard of care when treating patients. This standard of care means that a medical provider must act as a similarly situated medical professional would have acted under similar circumstances. Should a doctor or other health care professional fail to uphold this duty and a patient suffers as a result, the patient may be able to seek compensation pursuant to a

Misdiagnosing Cancer


Q: Is misdiagnosing cancer grounds for a lawsuit?

New York City personal injury attorneys help clients who’ve suffered serious physical and/or psychological injuries as a result of someone else’s negligent, reckless, or intentional actions.

What leads to a personal injury lawsuit?

Common factors in a personal injury action may include:

  • a victim with serious physical and/or psychological injuries
  • a person or entity whose negligent actions (or failures to act) directly resulted in the victim’s injury
  • a person or entity whose reckless actions caused the victim’s injury
  • a person or entity who caused the victim’s injury by acting with malicious intent to harm (which usually involves criminal charges in addition to a civil monetary lawsuit) product liability cases where injuries result from dangerous or defective products or products without adequate instructions or safety warnings.

Two of the best-known scenarios that lead to personal injury lawsuits are motor vehicle accidents and Read more . . .

When Fertility Clinics Use the Wrong Sperm


Q: Can I sue a fertility clinic for using the wrong sperm?

New York City medical malpractice attorneys know that the spectrum of potential medical malpractice scenarios is broader than most people realize. In some cases, the damages can be mitigated through a follow-up procedure (or several) by a different and more skilled doctor. But other mistakes – like removing the wrong organ or using the wrong sperm when creating an embryo – are permanent and unfixable.

Is the misdiagnosis of cancer medical malpractice?


Imagine being told by a doctor or hospital that you likely had kidney cancer and needed to have both of your kidneys removed because of it. In addition to mentally processing the life-threatening cancer diagnosis, imagine the end result of the surgery would mean four hours of dialysis three days a week for the rest of your life--unless a kidney transplant could be obtained. 

The kidneys remove toxins and regulate potassium levels in the body among other things. Dialysis is needed when kidneys are absent or not functioning optimally. It’s reportedly time-consuming, uncomfortable, and life-altering.

Can I sue for damages over a botched circumcision?


While some may call it the unkindest of cuts, countless parents in America opt to have their baby boys circumcised before leaving the hospital while still others of the Jewish faith have the procedure done in a religious ceremony after the infant is discharged. But despite being considered routine by many, the procedure is not without risk. And when the delicate procedure goes wrong, it can go horribly wrong and lead to a personal injury lawsuit.

Removing a Healthy Organ in Error


Can I sue for malpractice if a surgeon mistakenly removes a healthy organ?

Skilled New York medical malpractice attorneys need to know their way not only around the legal aspects of the case but must also navigate the often-complex terminology and best practices of the medical profession in proving their case.

That’s because succeeding in a medical malpractice lawsuit requires clearly showing that the doctor, hospital, and/or other medical personnel deviated from the accepted standards of medical care and that such deviation caused the victim’s injuries.

Medical malpractice lawsuits fall within the realm of Read more . . .

Don’t Be Afraid to Sue Someone

Q: Can I have multiple lawsuits simultaneously?

Some people go through their whole lives without retaining a skilled personal injury attorney– – either because they were never harmed by someone else they were too afraid or intimidated to pursue legal action. Others, they have multiple lawsuits at the same time. If you have been injured or suffered damages at the hands of someone else, you are entitled to pursue legal action—or actions—to eb compensated.
