Medical malpractice results in thousands of injuries and deaths in New York every year. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes death or injury to a patient. Medical malpractice can be based on errors or omissions related to diagnosis, treatment, follow up care or health management.
The medical malpractice statute of limitations typically provides patients, or their families, 2.5 years from the date of their injury to file a claim. This is a much shorter period than many other types of claims.
Proving negligence in suspected malpractice cases can be difficult for those involved, whether the patient or relatives of a deceased victim. To justify a claim of medical malpractice, there must be a lasting harm and there must be evidence that the medical professionals deviated from the accepted medical standards.
Examples of Medical Malpractice include:
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Medical errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Hospital malpractice
- Orthopedic mismanagement
- Emergency errors
- Birth injuries
- Wrongful death
- Nursing home abuse
