(Go here for a list of Common Types of Medical Malpractice)

Medical malpractice refers to any situation where a Manhattan medical professional deviates from the accepted standard of care, resulting in harm or injury to a patient.

Victims of medical malpractice in Manhattan may suffer from physical, emotional, and financial damages, including pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and even long-term disability.

Are You A Victim Of Medical Malpractice?
Here’s What You Need To Do Next.

If you believe that you are a victim of medical malpractice, here’s what you should do next:

Seek medical attention: Your health and wellbeing should be your top priority. If you are experiencing any negative symptoms or complications as a result of the medical treatment you received, seek immediate medical attention from a different healthcare provider or hospital.

Document everything: Documenting everything related to your medical treatment is crucial. Make sure to keep a detailed record of all medical records, bills, prescriptions, and any other relevant information related to your treatment. Also, write down your recollection of the events leading up to the malpractice incident, and note any conversations or interactions with the healthcare provider or hospital staff. Some doctors and healthcare providers may deny that they’re liable in case of an injury.

Contact the healthcare provider or hospital: It’s important to communicate with the healthcare provider or hospital to express your concerns and seek a resolution. You can try to speak with the provider or hospital directly, or file a complaint with their patient advocate or customer service department.

Consult with a medical malpractice attorney: Medical malpractice attorneys like Merson Law can help you understand your legal rights and options. They can review your medical records and help determine if you have a case. It’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible, as there are typically time limits for filing a medical malpractice claim.
