Health care professionals in New York must follow safety guidelines and standards that are intended to ensure that patients are not exposed to unreasonable or unnecessary health risks. If a doctor or nurse does not follow these patient safety guidelines and standards, and a patient is hurt or killed as a result, that health care provider has likely committed medical negligence and malpractice.
It can be complicated to establish exactly what those guidelines and rules are with regards to medical malpractice. It takes an experienced malpractice attorney to understand these standards, how to apply them and how to clearly show a link between the malpractice and the injury. At The Klein Law Group, P.C., in New York, we can advise you on your rights in filing a malpractice claim under state and/or federal law.
NYC Medical Negligence Attorneys
Doctors, nurses, dentists and other health care providers who ignore or disregard patient safety rules put patients at risk. While some mistakes cause no harm, it is only a matter of time before a mistake or procedural violation results in a serious tragedy. If you have been the victim of medical negligence, it is important to take action, not only for yourself, but to shed light on the types of medical errors that are harming and killing people every year.
As medical technology becomes more complex, and new kinds of treatment options emerge, it has become more difficult for people without a background in medicine to fully understand errors. Your lawyer should know how to outline medical malpractice for a jury in order to pursue the full compensation you deserve.
