We've Served the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and the NYC Metro Area For More Than 30 Years

There are risks involved in all medical procedures, but when doctors fail to follow professional standards, those risks can be much higher. If you’ve been injured during medical treatment either in a doctor’s office or hospital, or your doctor failed to diagnose a disease, you may have a legal claim for medical malpractice. Doctors and hospitals are held to a high standard of care in their treatment of patients. Deviation from that acceptable level of care may entitle a patient to recover money damages.

Medical errors, medical negligence, and failure to provide an acceptable standard of care can lead to serious injuries, worsening of the initial health complaint, and even death. If your loved one passed away because of a doctor’s careless or negligent actions, you may have a valid medical malpractice case. Call on Oresky & Associates, PLLC to help you understand your legal options for holding the negligent doctor accountable.

Call Concerning Any Medical Malpractice Wrongful Death Case

Unfortunately, medical malpractice can lead to deadly complications and even lethal injuries. This is especially true when the patient’s original medical concern was serious, such as cancer, and the doctor failed to diagnose or treat the patient or provided the wrong treatment. In this instance, it might allow the cancer to spread, and the patient might be too weak to survive once the mistake is discovered.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Can I bring a car accident lawsuit if I am undocumented?
Personal injury lawsuits can be brought without regard to your immigration status. Even if you are undocumented you have the right to sue for money damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.
How does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? Read our full article here.
Can I Get Compensated if I Was Partly at Fault for My Car Accident?
The short answer is yes - many times, you can be compensated if you are partly at fault. Again, New York is a no-fault insurance state in which your own insurance pays for your out-of-pocket costs such as limited lost wages and medical bills up to $50,000.  When you make a claim for pain and suffering as well as certain economic loss above no-fault, the percentages of fault will be considered in your recovery. Your injury from your car accident may have a certain value, however, fault will be taken into consideration at the time of trial or settlement.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
What Happens if the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
If the other driver was uninsured we can file an uninsured motorist claim under your vehicle’s insurance policy.  Automobile insurance policies written for New York State motorists are required to have uninsured protection.  This insurance will provide financial compensation to you, if the at fault driver does not have insurance. If you must file through your own insurer, you need a skilled law firm to help you recover the maximum money damages available.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident?
You can argue that the best time to hire a car accident lawyer is shortly after your accident happens. By hiring a car accident lawyer from our firm, you:
  • Protect yourself from insurance companies
  • Have a buffer between you and the parties who caused your accident
  • Reduce the risk of your rights being violated
The insurance company may try to get you to accept a low settlement offer. These offers come quickly but generally do not cover your long-term losses. A lawyer from our team will shield you from lowball settlement offers by fighting for the full scope of your damages. You can learn more by reading our full blog post here.
Can I Sue For A Work-Related Injury?
You can sue for a work-related injury under certain conditions. Typically, employers in New York have immunity from personal injury lawsuits, but there are exceptions. There may be other liable parties (other than your employer) who do not have this immunity. You can read our full blog post here to find out more.
How Is Fault Determined in a Car Accident?
Fault is determined by the way that the accident happened.  Did a driver go through a light or stop sign?  Was the driver speeding or driving unreasonably under the circumstances?  New York is a comparative fault state, meaning you can still recover some compensation for damages even if you are the mostly at-fault driver. Many times, the crash is a result of both drivers who share percentages of the fault.
