Helping Victims of Medical Negligence

Our Experienced Attorneys Can Help You with a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

Medical professionals such as surgeons, physicians, nurses and dentists in the Buffalo Niagara Region are some of most revered members of our community for good reason. In Western New York, we are truly lucky to have a thriving and envied healthcare industry. We trust them to treat our illnesses and we rely on them to care for us and for our loved ones in times of extreme vulnerability and weakness. Unfortunately though, there are rare instances when medical professionals make critical and avoidable errors that result in injury or death. When these incidents do occur it is critical to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in order to recover compensation for the damages incurred by negligent medical practice.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Since medical malpractice cases are some of the most complicated personal injury cases to prove and win, it is virtually impossible to do so without a highly trained and experienced medical malpractice lawyer. There are many nuances to this type of case that make an attorney’s experience a vital factor in the eventual outcome of the lawsuit. Only a veteran medical malpractice attorney and his or her legal team, such as those you might find when searching for a Buffalo personal injury lawyer, can effectively.

  • Listen to the circumstances surrounding your case and determine if there is justification for a lawsuit
  • Examine and interpret the medical records to find out if they offer supporting evidence
  • Know how to extract critical information from the physician and his or her co-workers concerning your treatment
  • Research and find previous cases which constitute precedents (cases which resemble the present case) and determine whether they resulted in successful lawsuits
  • Find medical experts who can and will testify on your behalf
  • Represent you in court against high-powered defense lawyers hired by the physician and/or medical facility in question

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

Doctors, nurses and all other medical professionals are, of course, required by law to use a reasonable amount of discretion in providing health care.  Because most of us are only familiar with medical professionals who are always well within the boundaries of the law, it is astonishing that 90,000 people per year are killed or injured due to medical errors.

The two most common forms of medical malpractice are the misdiagnosis of a medical condition and the mistreatment of a medical condition. Here are some common examples of each:

  • Misdiagnosis of a medical condition: This could be the failure to diagnose cancer or another life-threatening disease when the symptoms and signs of the disease are present and should have been detected. For instance, if a doctor fails to diagnose lung cancer despite clear symptoms that could be linked to asbestos exposure, consulting with an asbestos attorney in Buffalo may be beneficial.
  • Mistreatment of a medical condition: this could be something such as the failure to perform an emergency C-section when a pregnant woman or baby is in distress. The consequences of this unacceptable error could be a life-long disease such as Cerebral Palsy.
