Medical Malpractice

New York Medical Malpractice and Medical Negligence Lawyer

Medical Malpractice takes place way to often. Doctors, hospitals, labs and nurses make many mistakes. This often has tragic effects upon the victim and their family.

During labor, delivery and birth mistakes can result in brain damages babies, cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy. Doctors fail to recognize fetal distress, a failure of labor to progress, uses excessive tractor, improperly uses a vacuum extractor or forceps, fails to perform a cesarean section, improperly delivers a breach presentation, and many other conditions. All can result in devastating injuries. For decades I have handled these types of cases. I have also worked and handled cases for Fitzgerald and Associates.

Many signs and symptoms of cancer are not properly investigated. X-rays, Ct Scans, PAP Smears, MRI’S, Mammograms are often misread and cancers are not diagnosed timely. These delays in diagnosis can lead to the cancer spreading and even death.

Other complications and mistakes include surgical errors, fistulas, medication errors and mistakes, IV infiltration and IV burns, foreign objects left after surgery including sponges, clips and instruments.

Whether the mistake is by a surgeon, obstetrician, gynecologist, pediatrician, radiologist, internist, hematologist, chiropractor, orthopedist, emergency room doctor or other professional, I have investigated and handled these claims for decades.

Cases involving surgery, brain damage, paralysis, coma, quadriplegia, paraplegia and other complications often result from medical malpractice. Failing to treat conditions can result in blood clots, thrombosis, heart attacks, amputation, and death.

You need an attorney with the expertise to investigate what happened. Doctors, nurses and other medical providers often cover up and fail to reveal what really happen. Hospital records, medical records, lab reports, x-rays and fetal monitor strips most be expertly reviewed. Often times there are missing records. You want an attorney who can prove what is suddenly missing to a jury.

Medical malpractice cases are the most difficult of all personal injury cases to bring to a successful conclusion. Alan Chorne learned this area, first representing many of New York’s largest hospitals and doctors. After having learned this, he has taken these skills to help the victims of malpractice for the last 20 years.

Victims of malpractice and their families need to be a lawyer with the expertise to hold the doctors and hospitals responsible and to compassionately help your family and aggressively seek justice for you in Court.

Whether a private doctor, hospital, New York City Health and Hospitals, New York State or other is responsible, I have handled these cases successfully.

Over twenty five years of experience in handling medical malpractice cases has taught me that determining if a medical error rises to the level of professional malpractice requires a dispassionate analysis of the records. One can expect a vigorous defense from the doctor’s or hospital’s attorneys and insurance carriers. Understanding the records and retaining experts for your case is the first and most crucial first step on the road to bringing a successful malpractice claim. Having been on both sides also has helped me retain the top experts that cases require.

If you have been injured or if a family member has been injured or died as a result of medical malpractice or nursing home negligence you may well be entitled to collect money damages.
