Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. The negligence might be the result of errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or health management.

To be considered medical malpractice under the law, the claim must have the following characteristics:

  • A violation of the standard of care
  • An injury was caused by the negligence
  • The injury resulted in significant damages

How do I Know if I Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?
There are stringent regulations in New York state surrounding medical malpractice cases. Considering this, it is vital that you seek legal counsel from an experienced New York medical malpractice lawyer, in order to determine whether you have a valid medical malpractice claim or not. One of the most important things an individual must understand about a medical malpractice lawsuit, and any personal injury claim in general, is that the burden of proof lies on the victim or plaintiff and their legal team. At Gabriel Law Firm, with years of experience, and a proven track record dealing with medical malpractice claims of all types, our team is meticulous in our pursuit of justice, and obtaining you the damages you deserve! The most important thing about any medical malpractice claim is that an attorney must be able to prove four key elements in order to not only secure solid compensation for
damages, but to prove that a valid claim even exists for the injured party.

These elements include:

  • Doctor-Patient Relationship – The existence of a doctor-patient relationship between the two parties; proof that the defendant(s) treated the plaintiff(s) for some type of illness or condition.
  • Negligence – The medical treatment that was provided to the plaintiff(s) was negligent, or omitted certain vital steps that any other competent doctor would provide, when treating such a condition. The care for the illness or condition, went against what is considered by most medical professionals to be the conventionally accepted standards of care.
  • Causation – These negligent actions or omissions were in fact the cause of the plaintiff(s)’ injuries, illness, or health complications.
  • Damages – These future health complications, in some way, led to further damages – financially, emotionally, mentally, to others close to the individual and much more.
