Medical Malpractice Comes in Many Forms, and We Accept All Cases
When it comes to treating a medical condition, the steps taken and procedures performed must conform to the generally accepted standard of care. During the course of treatment, medical negligence can result in physical harm or injury to the patient. We handle a wide variety of cases that arise out of medical mistakes including:
- Errors in medication
- Surgical mistakes
- Diagnostic mistakes
- Failure to diagnose—or to do so promptly
- Lack of informed consent—Not advising the patient of the risks of treatment
- Negligence related to obstetrics
- Childbirth injuries
- Failure to treat the patient
- Failure to prevent secondary infection
If medical malpractice caused you harm you deserve to be compensated, and Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. can seek that compensation for you so you can attend to your physical recovery. Call us at 516-932-0400.
Many Medical Practitioners Come into Play and Might be Liable
The medical industry is comprised of a multitude of medical professional types. Any number and combination of these practitioners can touch your medical condition—some in ways you might not even be aware.
That leaves open a wide range of possibilities for carelessness, recklessness, or negligence that can cause a patient injury, harm, or a worsened condition.
We will consider your medical condition and all the people involved in your treatment including the following types of practitioners:
- Medical imaging technicians
- Nurse practitioners
- Medical testing technicians
- Oral surgeons
We will scrutinize every type of practitioner involved in your medical treatment to determine the possibility that he or she was negligent in a way that caused you harm.
Sometimes a Treatment or a Medical Facility is at Fault for Your Injuries
For many reasons, we often find that a treatment facility is partly or wholly liable for the injuries you sustained while being treated by medical practitioners who work there.
Some of the types of treatment/medical facilities we can consider in your case include the following:
- Test labs
- Surgery facilities
- Nursing homes and long-term care facilities
- Urgent care sites
If a facility is responsible for the damages you have suffered, we will identify it as such, make a claim on your behalf and, as indicated, and pursue legal action.
