Personal Injury Attorneys Representing Victims of Negligent Doctors in New York City

Patients rely on medical professionals to act responsibly and in their best interests when providing treatment during their most vulnerable times.

When medical professionals are negligent, victims can take legal action to recover the damages sustained and hold them responsible for the harm caused. Queens medical malpractice lawyer Marc S. Albert has over two decades of experience representing patients harmed by a negligent doctor or medical facility. Having secured millions of dollars for injured patients, including a $3.25 million award in a recent failure to diagnose and treat claim, he has shown his dedication to making sure that victims have the resources that they need to cope with an injury caused by negligent medical treatment.

Situations Involving Medical Malpractice Claims

Medical malpractice refers to actions taken by a medical professional that fall below professional standards of care for those in the medical community. Although surgical procedures and many illnesses have inherent risks and potential complications, malpractice claims arise when a doctor, or another professional, fails to act as a reasonable professional would in the same specialty. Medical malpractice can involve a broad array of situations, including:

  • Administration of the wrong kind, or amount, of medication.
  • Surgical errors.
  • Failure to diagnose, or delayed diagnosis.
  • Emergency room errors.
  • Birth injuries.
  • Errors in administering anesthesia or monitoring a patient under anesthesia.
  • Failure to monitor or take action based on patients’ changes in vital signs.
  • Nursing home patient neglect or abuse.

Medical malpractice lawsuits are complicated, requiring a careful investigation into the circumstances surrounding a victim’s injuries as well as gathering and interpreting very specific medical evidence. Serving patients in Queens and beyond, knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney Marc S. Albert has the resources and experience necessary to assist victims in pursuing these types of claims aggressively.

Holding Negligent Parties Liable

A victim may be entitled to damages, such as medical expenses, lost income, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering, when a doctor, a hospital, or another health care provider has committed medical malpractice. To establish liability, certain elements must be met. Medical malpractice requires proof that the victim and the defendant had a doctor-patient relationship, in which the medical professional agreed to treat the patient. Once this relationship is established, the medical professional owes the patient a duty of care to act within the standard recognized as acceptable by the medical community. A Queens medical malpractice attorney thus must show that the duty of care was breached by a medical professional’s unreasonable actions. They also must show that the breach caused the victim’s injuries and that damages resulted.

In many medical malpractice claims, showing that a defendant medical professional’s actions caused a victim’s injuries is a challenging task, since he or she could have pre-existing conditions that complicate the matter. Aside from holding individual medical professionals responsible, a hospital or facility can also be held vicariously liable for an employee’s gross negligence by showing that the individual was acting within the scope of employment when the injury occurred.
