Long Island Medical Malpractice Lawyer
When you need medical help, you rely on healthcare professionals to diagnose your problem(s) correctly, perform surgery and administer medications competently. If a hospital, doctor, nurse or dentist, fails to deliver the standard of care expected of them and causes you serious injury or the death of a family member, it is considered medical malpractice.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), medical negligence is the third-leading cause of death in the United States. Furthermore, in 2012, over three billion dollars was paid out by the medical profession as a result of medical malpractice. But it is important to understand that not all bad outcomes from medical treatment are the result of medical malpractice. There are often times when a doctor’s treatment does not achieve the intended outcome even though the care provided was appropriate.
