Handling a Wide Range of Medical Malpractice Claims in NYC
Anytime a doctor or nurse is overworked, is under-trained or fails to pay attention to his or her patient's needs, lives are put at risk. This is a highly complicated area of the law. Just as you would not select just any doctor to conduct a surgical procedure, invest in experienced legal counsel if you or your loved one was the victim of medical malpractice.
At the law firm of James Greenberg, P.C., we know the difference between a medical mistake and medical malpractice. We have extensive experience proving fault in highly complex claims. We work with industry-leading medical experts to hold medical professionals accountable for overlooking standard operating procedures leading to a wide range of medical malpractice claims, such as:
Pharmacy/medication errors: Doctors can cause serious harm when they prescribe the wrong medication or the wrong dosage. Patients can also be put at great risk when pharmacists fill the wrong prescription leading to serious complications.
Birth trauma: When gynecologists fail to provide appropriate prenatal care, mothers and their unborn children can face serious complications. We have extensive experience holding medical professionals accountable for failing to properly monitor a fetus or the mother during the labor or delivery process.
Failure to diagnose abscess: A bacterial or fungal infection can potentially be life-threatening when medical professionals overlook standard operating procedures. If a doctor failed to diagnose epidural abscess in a timely manner, you or your loved one may be at risk of serious or life-threatening injuries. We are fully prepared to hold medical professionals accountable for their negligent actions.
Failure to diagnose/misdiagnosis: All too often, patients describe their symptoms and doctors fail to ask for appropriate tests or fail to read the test results properly. Failure to diagnose a medical condition can delay treatments and affect a patient's prognosis. We have experience holding doctors accountable for failing to diagnose cancer, lead paint poisoning, fractures, torn tendons and ligaments, sepsis, peritonitis, respiratory distress, blood clots, cellulites, hepatitis, Lyme disease, lupus and other serious conditions.
Surgical errors: Surgical mistakes can include medical negligence during plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery, urological surgery or exploratory surgery. Surgeons have also been known to leave surgical instruments in patients, make anesthesia errors and operate on the wrong body part.
Negligent supervision of patients: When hospitals and nursing homes fail to provide appropriate supervision, patients are susceptible to serious injuries when left untended.
Bedsores: Bedsores develop from pressure when a patient is not turned and repositioned often enough. When a patient lays in one position for too long bedsores develop. There is no excuse for neglecting the patients and allowing these sores to develop. These sores are extremely painful and often cause life threatening infection. We have extensive experience holding facilities responsible for neglecting patients to the point where these sores develop.
