New Cassel Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Fewer professionals experience the absolute trust that medical professionals often enjoy. When you entrust a doctor, surgeon, hospital, or medical specialist with your health, and they act in a way that harms you due to a lack of the appropriate level of care, they have breached a fundamental duty that they owe to you.
With this violation of duty comes a responsibility to compensate you, the patient, for the physical injury, emotional aftermath, and economic consequences of their negligence. A New Cassel medical malpractice lawyer at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will champion your claim for compensation to insurers and a court of law, if necessary. Our multilingual staff (English, Tamil, Kannada, Greek, Bengali, and Spanish) will be happy to assist you, and we are happy to meet with you on Long Island or elsewhere in the New York metropolitan area.

How Your New Cassel Medical Malpractice Lawyer Will Investigate Your Case
Your New Cassel legal team will analyze every aspect of your medical treatment and/or care. Many layers comprise the medical industry, and we know where to look within each layer for telling evidence about how your medical malpractice happened—and who should be liable for the injuries and resulting damages that you have experienced and that you may experience.
A name—or several—will eventually emerge to identify the medical professionals or facilities whose actions or inactions caused your injury or caused an existing condition to worsen.
With this name or list in hand, we will review:
- The medical professional’s history in the field of medicine
- Your medical records
- History of the medical treatment facility
- Statements from witnesses
- Opinions from experts in the medical community
At the end of our investigation, we will stand on steady ground to pursue the next step: establishing the occurrence of medical malpractice.
How We Establish Liability for Your New Cassel Medical Malpractice Claim
To legally prove medical malpractice, the law requires that we establish the following statements to be true:
- You had a doctor-patient relationship with the medical entity you are suing.
- The medical professional was negligent in your diagnosis or treatment by failing to act in a way that a competent physician, in the same circumstances, should have acted. We have to prove that the doctor did not meet the appropriate / generally accepted medical practice standard.
- The medical professional’s negligence “more likely than not” caused your injury.
- The injury you suffered resulted in specific damages.
We will work tirelessly to prove all the above statements using the evidence we have gathered during our investigation, as well as the opinions of experts in the medical field.
