Representing Victims of Negligent Doctors in New York City
Patients rely on medical professionals to act responsibly and in their best interests when providing treatment during their most vulnerable times.
In some cases, doctors, hospitals, nurses, or other healthcare facilities and professionals do not take the care required for a specific situation. Negligence, when dealing with a person’s health, can lead to severe, life-long injuries and even have fatal consequences.
When medical professionals are negligent, victims can take legal action to recover damages and hold the responsible people accountable.

Cases Involving Medical Malpractice Claims
Medical malpractice refers to actions taken by a medical professional that fall below professional standards of care for those in the medical community. Medical and surgical procedures are always associated with a level of risk. Doctors, hospitals, and other medical professionals are also often confronted with injuries or illnesses which are beyond the point where current medical care can be effective.
Bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit is not reasonable in every case where a patient is beyond help. Medical malpractice cases are brought when there is a failure to act as a reasonable professional would in a similar situation. When such negligence results in permanent, long-term injuries, or death, then a case may be brought against the practitioner in question.
Medical malpractice can involve a broad array of situations, including:
- Administration of the wrong kind, or amount, of medication.
- Surgical errors.
- Failure to diagnose, or delayed diagnosis.
- Emergency room errors.
- Birth injuries.
- Improper administration of anesthesia or negligent monitoring of a patient under anesthesia.
- Failure to monitor or take action based on patients’ changes in vital signs.
- Nursing home patient neglect or abuse.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are complicated, requiring a careful investigation into the circumstances surrounding a victim’s injuries as well as gathering and interpreting concrete medical evidence. Marc S. Albert has the resources and experience necessary to assist victims in pursuing these types of claims aggressively.
