We have served medical malpractice clients since 1991, and we would treat your case with the same drive, dignity, and compassion as we have all our clients.

We Accept All Types of Uniondale Medical Malpractice Cases

Any medical treatment or procedure can involve multiple providers of treatment or services. Each part requires the hands and minds of multiple parties. When any of these parties participating in the process of providing you with care  performs in a way that injures you, the patient, or makes your  existing condition worse than it was, one or multiple parties can be held liable.

Whether caused by a mistake, an oversight, or deliberate action or inaction, we handle any medical malpractice, including the following:

  • Failure to advise the patient of treatment risks
  • Inadequate prevention of secondary infection
  • Lack of diagnosis (or prompt diagnosis)
  • Failing to treat the patient
  • Failure to prevent secondary infection
  • Errors in surgical mistakes
  • Injuries related to childbirth
  • Medication mistakes
  • Problems with diagnosis

When you are already coping with the pain of injury, the added burden of dealing with the concerns surrounding the technical details and deadlines of  a medical malpractice compensation battle is something you should be able to put out of your mind . We invite you to leave this work and all the associated concerns to us.

Many Medical Practitioners Come into Play and Might be Liable

When it comes to receiving medical treatment, the equivalent of a “one-man shop”, is a rarity in modern medical practice

Any number or combination of medical professionals can cause injury in the course of treating you as a patient, whether through the practitioner’s ignorance, carelessness, greed, or some other factor.

When we investigate the cause of your injuries, we will do so with a wide lens, considering the roles and actions of all the following:

  • Pharmacists
  • Nursing staff
  • Imaging technicians
  • Pharmacists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychologists
  • Surgeons and surgical staff
  • Lab technicians
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Oral surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Doctors

The entire range of medical professionals who had a hand in your treatment will fall under our lens of scrutiny. If we sense any chance of negligence, we will proceed to  thoroughly investigate that party’s role in your treatment and injury.  Our goal is to build a compelling case against every party that contributed to the cause of your injury. 

Medical Malpractice Applies to Uniondale Hospitals and Other Facilities, Too

From the hospital where you had surgery to the strip-mall diagnostic lab that drew your blood, your treatment process was “touched” by many medical facilities and operations.

The fault for your injury could very well lie in part or whole with one of these facilities. They, too, will pass under our scope as we investigate liability for your case.

Examples of the types of facilities we will explore are:

  • Clinics
  • Long-term care facilities and nursing homes
  • Urgent care facilities
  • Emergency centers
  • Hospitals
  • Surgery facilities
  • Imaging centers

If our research into your case yields evidence that points to one of these operations as being at fault for your injury, we will include it in the legal action we take on your behalf.

Proving Fault and Liability in Your Uniondale Medical Malpractice Case

By the very nature of their professions, any medical provider involved in your treatment owed you a duty of care to protect you from harm or danger. Establishing duty of care is a first and necessary component to establishing negligence.

Our investigation will gather a full set of evidence, including the types listed below, to prove that the medical practitioner(s) in your case failed to fulfill a duty of care:

  • History of the medical facility
  • Professional record of the individual practitioner
  • Witness statements
  • Your medical records
  • Opinions in the medical community
  • Medical records
  • The medical practitioner’s professional history

Calculating Recoverable Damages in Your Uniondale Medical Malpractice Case

Finally, our legal team will itemize how your medical malpractice injury has damaged you physically, financially and emotionally. Depending upon the particular circumstances of your unique case, with  the help of respected economists, and medical, vocational rehabilitation, and life-care-planning experts, we will attach values to each item on the list. These comprise your recoverable damages for which we will seek compensation.

Your list might include the following types of damages:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost benefits
  • Hospitalization
  • Medical expenses
  • Medical treatment
  • Prescription medicines
  • Pain management
  • Impaired quality of life
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Diminished future potential earnings
  • Surgeon’s fees
  • Doctor’s fees
  • Replacement services
  • Ambulance transportation

If medical malpractice resulted in the death of a loved one, you have the right to pursue a wrongful death action. Our Uniondale medical malpractice lawyers will prosecute this case on your behalf  and do so with compassion and dignity. Call Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. at 516-932-0400.

New York Law Limits the Time You Have to Pursue Legal Action for Your Case

New York’s statute of limitations limits the amount of time you have from the date that  you sustained your medical malpractice injury to take legal action against the negligent parties. Additionally, the claim and litigation process have numerous other time deadlines that must be met. With everything occupying your mind in the aftermath of a medical malpractice injury, we suggest that you consult with one of our Uniondale medical malpractice lawyers to discuss how we can effectively handle your case for you.

Keep in mind that the sooner you hire legal counsel, the sooner your attorney will begin building your case with testimonies from witnesses who still have a clear recollection of the events that led to your injury.

With regard to the statute of limitations, other case time-deadlines and the best opportunity to discover and obtain potentially critical evidence, it is far better to act sooner than later.  The sooner you contact us, the greater our opportunity to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
