Medical malpractice lawsuits hold physicians accountable

Staten Island residents generally have a lot of faith in doctors, and this faith is usually justified. Physicians are required to undergo years of schooling and training to make sure that they have an acceptable level of skill and judgment. When a patient undergoes a surgical procedure or receives treatment for an ailment or injury, things don't always go according to plan and sometimes the patient suffers. Sometimes this suffering is unavoidable due to the nature of the surgery or treatment. At other times, however, this suffering is a direct result of malpractice by a medical professional.

Elements of a medical malpractice case

When you receive medical treatment from a health care professional in New York, you should expect to receive care in accordance with the standards in place within the medical profession. When appropriate care is not received, patients may face serious injuries, illnesses or even death.
