By definition, medical malpractice occurs as a result of negligence by a professional health care provider, which can lead to more serious health complications or death.  New York doctors and patients alike are concerned with the potential for mistakes to lead to such complications.

Every medical procedure requires skill, sanitation, and proper aftercare, as one misstep can lead to complications and increased risks for patients.  Even if procedures are handled appropriately, patients may be subject to unexpected results due to misinformation.  If a doctor, surgeon, or medical staff member fails to warn patients or family members of any potential risks, attorneys can help victims seek compensation.

When healthcare professionals fail to provide an appropriate standard of care, your health is at risk.  The process to recover damages may seem overwhelming, but with the help of NY attorneys, you may be able to bring a case against the individuals who are responsible for your mistreatment. If you or someone you know has suffered as the result of a medical malpractice incident, contact Rubenstein & Rynecki today for a free consultation. No recovery, no fee.
