What if my doctor denies wrongdoing in my Brooklyn medical malpractice case?
Many doctors and other medical professionals accused of medical malpractice insist they did nothing wrong. The insurance companies and lawyers defending the health care providers are skilled at coming up with creative ways to blame the patient. They will point fingers at patients even when the negligence is blatant. That's why it's important to contact a lawyer immediately if you suspect you're a victim of medical malpractice in Brooklyn.
Our highly-trained staff knows how to carefully investigate complicated cases involving doctors, surgeons, nurses, pharmacists and others. We routinely review and analyze medical records in search of critical details to determine liability. We want to find out what really happened in the operating room or doctor's office.
Am I eligible for medical malpractice compensation?
Financial costs can add up quickly. Obtaining compensation in medical malpractice cases in a timely manner can be extremely difficult. The burden of proof in such cases can often be very high. Without sufficient evidence, you may have a hard time proving you are the victim of medical malpractice.
Fortunately, our knowledgeable attorneys know what is required to get results and have a proven track record of success. We have won many major, multi-million-dollar medical malpractice cases in New York, including:
- $22.97 million verdict for brain damage linked to a delay of treatment in 2014. One of the top medical malpractice verdicts in U.S. that year.
