3 Signs You May Have a Valid Medical Malpractice Claim, Manhattan, New York

Medical malpractice cases are notoriously difficult to litigate, and many victims are often unsure if they even have a valid claim. Myers, Singer & Galiardo, a premier personal injury firm in New York City, knows how damaging the results of medical mistakes can be, and they're committed to helping victims find justice.

While not every negative outcome is grounds for a suit, you may be eligible to pursue medical malpractice damages if:

  • medical malpracticeSurgical Mistakes Were Made: These issues often have immediate, severe consequences, ranging from infections to additional procedures and even lost limbs. If equipment was not properly sterilized or you received the wrong treatment, you'll likely need the assistance of a medical malpractice attorney.
  • Low Staffing Resulted In Neglect: Without sufficient staff, even the most well-intentioned care providers will be simply unable to give an adequate level of care. Understaffed conditions result in a broad range of undesirable outcomes, including bedsores, malnutrition, and infections, many of which can have serious, long-term consequences.
  • You Weren't Warned Of The Risks: It's the duty of every doctor to make sure you give informed consent before any treatment, part of which means explaining the procedure thoroughly and warning of any potential risks. To claim lack of informed consent, your attorney must be able to show your doctor did not provide the relevant information, and if they had, you would not have provided your consent.
