We expect our doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers to act in a professional manner but it only takes a mistake or negligent act to change someone's life forever. Doctors are required to take an oath to do no harm, however serious mistakes do occur in hospitals, medical offices and clinics.
If you or your loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice you should consult the The Popick Law Firm PC who can advise you of your legal rights and review your case. In some cases, you may be entitled to monetary damages.
A medical treatment that is unsuccessful does not necessarily mean it will be considered malpractice, however, malpractice includes the following:
At The Popick Law Firm PC we will investigate the complex and often hidden procedures of medical providers to expose substandard care and seek justice for patients and their families. We will analyze the client's medical history and records, intensively research the specific condition, and consult with leading medical experts to determine whether malpractice has been committed and whether the malpractice occurred within the statute of limitations.
It is, therefore, important that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible since a medical malpractice lawsuit must be brought within 2 ½ years from the time of malpractice, or within 2 ½ years from the date of the last continuous treatment for the condition that gave rise to the injury. The statute might be shorter if the hospital is owned and run by a municipality or the state. The statute may be longer where a foreign object was left inside of you. It is also longer when the plaintiff is a child.
If you think you or someone you love has been a victim of medical malpractice, call The Popick Law Firm PC at (718) 321-7460 to discuss your case. We are not a volume-based practice and either Mr. Popick or Mr. Rutman will discuss your case with you.
