Types of Medical Malpractice
The unfortunate reality is that malpractice happens far more often than it should in the medical industry. That being said, the medical field is vast because the human body is so complex. Therefore, medical malpractice can present itself in a number of different ways. Some of the forms of medical malpractice our firm has experience with includes the following:
- Failure to diagnose
- Delayed diagnosis
- Surgical mistakes
- Emergency room mistakes
- Prescription errors and overdoses
- Labor & birth injuries
- Anesthesia errors
- Inadequate consent
- Hospital-acquired or post-surgical infections
- Improper care and follow-up
In many cases, these errors can result in the need for additional medical care. Sometimes, they can even result in serious further injury or death so it is critical that you speak with an attorney.
Statute of Limitations on Medical Malpractice Cases
Like many other states, New York requires that lawsuits are brought within a predetermined period of time known as the statute of limitations. If an individual fails to pursue their case within this time period, they will not be able to do so in the future. Of course, this can be devastating to learn after it is too late. Time is of the essence so be sure to speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney soon. Medical malpractice cases in New York must be filed within 2.5 years from the date of the incident.
If your attorney believes that there was malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation to help offset some of the physical, financial, and emotional burdens faced as a result of their negligence. You are required to prove that the medical professional failed to meet the standard of care that his or her peers would meet in the same situation. If you are able to do this, you may be able to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, lost future wages, and more. If a loved one passed away because of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to wrongful death benefits.
