Staten Islanders and people throughout New York City who seek medical treatment will have the right to expect that they will be given the proper diagnosis, get the medication they need and have the care that is required to improve the injury, illness or condition. However, medical mistakes are all-too common today, and those who make the mistake should be held accountable for what went wrong.
An error can arise due to a misdiagnosis, hospital negligence, anesthesia errors, medication mistakes and more. With the financial and personal costs that accompany a medical mistake, it is critical to have legal assistance to consider a lawsuit. The medical error could be related to any problem the person presented when he or she went for treatment. If there is a symptom of a major disease such as cancer, a mistake in testing and formulating a diagnosis can cost a person his or her life. If it is a broken bone, a cut or other physical damage and the treatment leads to a worsened condition, this too can cost a person greatly. The wrong medication can cause extensive damage.
