What Rights Do You Have When A Doctor’s Negligence Causes More Injuries Or Even Death?

Recent headlines regarding the treatment of Joan Rivers in the hospital, as well as the factors that may have contributed to her death have many in NY thinking about the risks one takes when you go into a doctor’s office or hospital. You are placing yourself in the hands of the doctors and surgeons, but sometimes those hands that are meant to heal actually harm instead. It is an unfortunate occurrence, and one that medical malpractice lawyers in NYC see all too often.

As a patient in a doctor’s care or receiving medical treatment, you have certain rights and entitlements if you are injured or a doctor was found to be negligent. Referred to as medical malpractice, it is the doctor’s responsibility to ensure the safety of his patients, and if he or she, or a medical facility itself, is found to be negligent, then you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. If you have lost a loved one due to possible medical malpractice, you are also entitled to compensation for emotional anguish, pain and suffering, and other damages such as lost income and benefits.

Hospitals may often try to provide you with a quick settlement, because medical malpractice is of course bad for business. However, it is important to consult with a medical malpractice attorney in NYC first before accepting any offer, because chances are the settlement they are offering you is a figure much lower than what you deserve, especially if their negligence caused a death or lasting injuries requiring extensive treatment.
