Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice Lawyers in New York City

Healthcare providers have both a professional and legal obligation to perform their duties with competence and diligence. If a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional fails to perform his or her duty in accordance with the prevailing professional standard of care, and you suffer an injury due to that negligence, you can be compensated for your injuries.

Medical malpractice is not simply an undesired outcome or medical complication. To result from malpractice, the undesired outcome or complication must be due to a healthcare provider’s negligence. This can require a great deal of investigation and analysis by experts.

Medical Malpractice includes—

  • When a healthcare professional fails to diagnose or treat a medical condition properly, and that failure results in a new or aggravating injury to the patient.

Barasch & McGarry puts the client and their needs first. Always. Their staff is knowledgeable and professional. The attorneys are accessible and responsive and take the time to explain what could be dense information for those not familiar with it. In my experience, I have always been impressed with their level of service and attention and I’ve never waited for a call back.
