Compensation For Medical Negligence
There are good reasons why the medical profession has strict rules of professional conduct. When doctors, nurses and others in the medical profession fail to live up to these professional standards, the patients suffer. The results are often catastrophic, including serious illnesses, injuries or losses of life. To further exacerbate the problem, medical malpractice claims are notoriously complicated. Negligence is not easy to prove, and most hospitals and medical offices have highly skilled legal representation providing strong defenses against lawsuits.
If you or someone you love has been harmed by medical malpractice, you need the help of an experienced attorney. At Arze & Mollica, LLP, our two attorneys each have 20 years of legal experience representing injured clients in Brooklyn and throughout New York. We take a dedicated, detail-oriented approach to case preparation and an aggressive approach to litigation. We will do whatever it takes to get you the compensation you deserve.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Essentially, medical malpractice is negligence on the part of a doctor or another health care provider. When these medical professionals depart from accepted medical practice and injury or death of a patient occurs as a result of that deviation from the standard of care, the doctor or any other health care provider can be liable for their actions. Under such circumstances, the patient is entitled to submit a claim for past and future pain and suffering, medical expenses and loss of earnings. A spouse (or, if a minor is injured, the parents) can take legal actions for loss of services. In a death case, the next of kin can recover compensation for their loss.
