Ossining Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When you see a doctor for a regular check-up, specialty appointment, or a procedure, you trust them to uphold a standard of care for your health and well-being. Unfortunately, many medical professionals breach this trust and cause you harm. If your doctor’s carelessness or negligence caused your injuries, our passionate lawyers at Lever & Ecker, PLLC, can seek justice on your behalf and hold them accountable for their actions. 

After suffering injuries due to medical malpractice, your recovery should be your top priority. Our Ossining medical malpractice lawyers handle every aspect of your case, including litigation, so you do not have to worry about the stressful and complicated legal process. We provide high-quality guidance and unmatched legal services, as we have in our 65+ years of combined experience as lawyers. Medical malpractice claims often involve major hospitals, but we have the skills to take on any challenge, regardless of circumstances. With our open communication, you can understand the full scope of your Ossining claim and the best path to achieve the resolution you deserve.

What Is the Standard of Care in New York Medical Malpractice Claims?

When you see a doctor, nurse, specialist, or another medical professional, they owe you a standard of care. Specialists with years of training, like anesthesiologists, cardiologists, and radiologists, are also held to a high-level standard of care. While this standard does not have a singular definition, healthcare workers meet the standard if other physicians with equivalent skills would have followed the same or similar procedures under the same circumstances. 

If a medical professional fails to uphold this standard of care by causing you harm, we can listen to your story and determine if you can file a medical malpractice claim. We may do this by calling for testimony from a medical expert with similar training and experience as the responsible party. This witness can testify to the reasonable standard of care in your case, how the liable party breached the standard of care, and how their negligence caused you harm.  

How to Prove Fault in Ossining Medical Malpractice Claims

As the victim of medical malpractice, you must present clear evidence that the responsible party neglected the standard of care and directly caused your injuries and damages. Our skilled Ossining medical malpractice lawyers can build a strong claim to prove these points, relying on, among other potential evidence:

  • Hospital records
  • Medical records
  • Bills and statements
  • Photos of your injuries
  • Prescriptions
  • Test results
  • Video footage
  • Witness testimony

New York law also generally requires the lawyers for medical malpractice victims to file a written certificate of merit. This certificate confirms we have reviewed the case’s details and consulted with at least one licensed physician to conclude you have reasonable cause to file a medical malpractice suit. We ensure your claim meets all the legal requirements and has ample evidence to demonstrate liability.

Potentially Recoverable Damages for New York Medical Malpractice Claims

In addition to proving fault, we can fight for the compensation you deserve for your injuries and financial future. Based on the severity of your injuries and other circumstances, you may recover:

  • Pain and suffering (past and future)
  • Lost wages and income (past and future)
  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Disability
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical therapy
  • Prescribed medications
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Rehabilitation
  • Surgery costs

Our dedicated Ossining medical malpractice attorneys review every bill and statement and listen to your story about how your injuries have affected you emotionally and mentally to accurately determine your claim’s value. Unfortunately, insurance companies and defense lawyers try to use tactics to undermine your claim and offer you an unfair settlement. While we will make good faith efforts to settle your claim out of court, we are prepared to go to trial if necessary.
