Helping Families in Legal Matters for Over 30 Years

New York Medical Malpractice Lawyer

At Hartstein & Hartstein Attorneys at Law, we defend New York patients who have been injured due to negligent medical care of all forms and from any medical provider. Due to the number of people and procedures involved, the treatment of even one condition can be complex. Identifying where the treatment went wrong requires an analytical New York medical malpractice attorney who can identify improper conduct, surgical errors, physician or hospital negligence or the other possible defects or missteps that could have occurred.

Lawyers Experienced In Failure To Diagnose Cases

In New York, patients have two-and-a-half years to file a medical malpractice claim. If contacting the physician or hospital that failed to provide a reasonable standard of care does not successfully resolve your problem, you might consider contacting the medical board that oversees your physician's practice. However, filing medical malpractice lawsuit could be the only way to recoup the losses made from the believed medical error.

An attorney can help with the first step, which is filing a certificate of merit. This is prepared after another licensed physician reviews the medical situation and medical documents related to your potential lawsuit. If the physician believes an incident of medical malpractice was possible, he or she will incorporate that in the certificate of merit, which is then filed with the court to show that the lawsuit is warranted.

When managing the most complex cases from beginning to end, while keeping the process as simple as possible. We have become known as the "plain language" attorneys who clearly communicate with our clients, promptly respond to emails and phone calls, and offer clear answers to our clients' questions.
