What is Medical Malpractice?
Every day, patients in hospitals and medical offices throughout New York City receive substandard care. From misdiagnosis of illnesses and injuries to surgical mistakes in the operating room, doctors and other medical professionals routinely make mistakes that cost patients thousands – and in many cases millions – of dollars in medical bills, lost wages and other financial losses.
Medical professionals have a legal and ethical duty to treat patients according to the appropriate standard of care. When they fail to meet this duty, they can be held financially responsible through a claim for medical malpractice.
Common Forms of Medical Malpractice
Christopher Gorayeb and the other attorneys at Gorayeb & Associates routinely represent individuals and families in cases involving all types of medical malpractice, including:
- Failure to Diagnose and Misdiagnosis – Doctors’ failure to diagnose cancer, heart attacks and other serious medical conditions can leave patients suffering without proper care. In many cases, a physicians’ failure to diagnose leaves patients suffering from life-threatening conditions that could have been avoided with proper diagnosis. Misdiagnoses (for example, diagnosing a patient with migraines when he or she is actually suffering from a stroke) often have similar consequences.
- Malpractice Resulting in Birth Defects – Mistakes during pregnancy and childbirth can leave newborns suffering from dangerous and harmful medical conditions that can potentially negatively affect them for the rest of their lives. If a doctor, nurse or hospital made a mistake that resulted in harm to your baby, you may have a rightful claim to compensation.
- Prescription Medication Errors – Prescription medication errors are a major issue in New York City and nationwide. Doctors frequently prescribe the wrong medications, nurses and physicians regularly administer improper dosages to patients, and pharmacists improperly fill prescriptions with alarming frequency. If you or a relative has become ill or experienced side effects after taking a prescription medication, Gorayeb & Associates may be able to help you secure compensation for medical malpractice.
- Surgical Errors – Errors during surgery often leave patients, and their families, wondering where to turn for help. If your surgeon made a mistake, who can you trust to make sure you receive the medical treatment you need—not only to treat your injury, but to fix the surgeon’s error? At Gorayeb & Associates, we help victims of all types of surgical errors (including wrong-site surgery, anesthesia errors and leaving a sponge or other foreign object in the body) obtain the treatment they need while we fight for the compensation they deserve.
