All doctors and medical professionals have a duty to provide care in accordance with an established standard that has been deemed to be “good and acceptable” according to the medical community. When this treatment fails to adhere to this standard and a patient is harmed as a result, there may be a medical malpractice claim. At Frekhtman & Associates, we will assist you with sorting through the details to determine whether or not you can file a medical malpractice claim against a private practice or hospital which has caused you harm.
The New York City medical malpractice lawyers at Frekhtman & Associates have garnered million dollar verdicts and settlements in a variety of different medical malpractice cases. We work diligently to establish your case and to demonstrate that negligence occurred. We offer the assertive and results oriented representation that your case can benefit from.
Negligence on the part of medical professionals can have devastating consequences. However, in order to have success in a medical malpractice action in NYC, it is required that the plaintiff demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt that the doctor failed to follow established and accepted medical practice. You must also show that this deviation was a major factor in causing the patient’s injuries.
In addition, doctors are also required to utilize an accepted amount of due diligence when providing care for their patients. Physicians are required to take a proper medical history and to listen to their patients.
The hospitals and insurance companies have aggressive attorneys working to protect their interests. If you believe you have a legitimate medical malpractice case, it’s critical that you contact us as soon as possible. We will look over your case for free and determine if suing your doctor or a hospital has a good chance of success.
Medical malpractice investigations are handled differently depending on who caused your injury. In New York State, various government agencies inspect complaints filed by patients or family members. Many times, the New York State Health Department investigates claims. Complaints are also investigated by various organizations overseeing specific professions, including:
New York State Health Department’s Office of Professional Medical Conduct (for complaints about doctors, surgeons and physician assistants)
NY Board of Registration in Nursing (for complaints against nurses)
Office of the Professions for New York State Licensed Professions (for complaints against pharmacists)
