Manhattan Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Injured Because of Medical Negligence? We Can Help!

When most attorneys represent the victims of medical malpractice, they understand the legal issues at stake, but rarely understand the medical aspects of these cases. Our firm is different.

LawMD is one of the few law firms of its kind. In addition to providing fierce legal representation, our attorneys have worked as physicians and can fully understand the medical issues at the center of your case. This gives us insight into the causes and liability of your injuries and knowledge on what treatment may be needed for you to heal or manage your injuries. We can determine the resources you will need and will fight to get the compensation you deserve.

Examples of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional makes an error while caring for a patient. The mistake must be one that you could expect most other medical professionals would not have made in the same situation. Mistakes can result from a variety of issues, including inexperience, lack of preparedness, defective drugs and medical devices, or just simple carelessness. A doctor may be overworked and fatigued and make mistakes or may not be provided with the resources necessary to properly administer care. Medical malpractice can also be the result of negligence throughout a hospital or healthcare organization, not just an individual practitioner.

Any case of medical malpractice can result in significant expenses for the victim and their family. Our Manhattan medical malpractice lawyers can help you recover compensation that pays for your medical bills and additional damages, including your undue pain and suffering.

Cases of medical malpractice may involve:

Proving Liability for Medical Malpractice

To demonstrate that a doctor committed an act of medical malpractice, it must be proven that an expected or acceptable duty of care was violated. Duty of care is a standard that all medical professionals must meet. Essentially, they must provide the best medical attention and treatment they possibly can, and in a way that other medical professionals would have reasonably done.

When a patient did not receive the care they need, it’s possible that they were a victim of medical malpractice. Most law firms have to rely on the input of medical experts to examine malpractice cases and identify liability, but LawMD is different. Our Manhattan medical malpractice attorneys are also experienced physicians — we know how injuries and illnesses should be treated and can identify when a doctor did not follow accepted medical standards. We also understand the healthcare system and can determine if the negligence of a third party was a cause of your injuries.

Free & Confidential Case Evaluations

We understand how intimidating it can be to begin a medical malpractice case. The financial and emotional aspects of recovering from an injury are overwhelming on their own, and these feelings can amplify if you add a legal case to the situation.

With LawMD on your side, you don’t need to worry. We will support you throughout your case and ensure you understand your rights at every step. Allow us to handle your case while your family heals.

WHY YOU MAY BENEFIT FROM A DOCTOR IN YOUR COURTROOM

  • WE UNDERSTAND YOUR INJURIES, BECAUSE WE’VE LIKELY TREATED THEM.

    Most of our physician-attorneys are either current or past treating doctors in, collectively, a wide range of medical specialties. There is a good chance one or more of our physician attorneys have actually treated medical conditions similar to the ones from which you or your loved one now suffers. That translates into care and understanding as your Counselors, and know-how as your Advocates.

  • TIME- AND COST-SAVINGS FOR YOUR CASE

    Any honest medical malpractice attorney will tell you that one of the greatest expenses in a medical malpractice case is having to pay physician experts to study the details of the medical issues in your case and, if necessary, provide testimony at deposition and trial. While even our physician attorneys may also need to hire outside medical experts for your case, our medical know-how allows us to perform a significant amount of the medical analysis necessary for your case in-house which may translate into significant savings at the conclusion of your case.

  • RAPID RESPONSE WITH SOLID ANSWERS TO YOUR SERIOUS QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR CASE

    Because we have in-house medical know-how, we can evaluate the medical questions in your case and provide answers without a lengthy wait. Our internal process involves getting the issues in your case quickly in front of the right physician attorney who, based on his or her medical experience and training, is most likely to have the answers you seek about whether you have a case and how we might help you get the compensation you deserve to help secure a brighter future for you and for your loved ones.
