New Jersey and New York City Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Whether you’re going in for a routine checkup, a more thorough evaluation to diagnose a disease, or even a surgical procedure, you expect the healthcare professionals who treat you to do everything with your best interests and safety in mind.
But statistics show that doesn’t always happen. An alarming number of patients in the U.S. go home from doctors’ offices and hospitals in worse health than when they arrived—and that can often be attributed to the mistakes and negligence of medical providers.
At SK Law, we believe that negligent doctors, surgeons, and healthcare facilities should be held accountable when their mistakes result in serious injuries, illnesses, or even deaths. The consequences of medical mistakes can be catastrophic for victims and their families, as they may result in permanent disabilities and huge medical bills.
If you or someone you love was affected by medical malpractice, we want to help you get fair compensation for what you’ve been through. Contact us today at 1-866-909-6894 or complete our online form for a free case review now.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice in New Jersey and New York
Healthcare providers are supposed to do everything in their power to help patients manage their symptoms and monitor recovery. Unfortunately, those healthcare professionals sometimes make preventable mistakes that put their patients’ health and lives at risk.
Some of those mistakes include:
- Diagnosis errors—Whether it’s failing to make a timely diagnosis or making an incorrect diagnosis, patients who don’t get the treatment they need in time often experience poor outcomes. Doctors are responsible for doing everything in their power to make the correct diagnosis right away.
- Surgical errors—Even routine surgeries still carry many risks. That’s why surgeons and their support teams must be careful and methodical before, during, and after every operation. When they are careless, devastating mistakes can occur, including operating on the wrong body parts, leaving surgical tools inside patients’ bodies, or administering improper dosages of anesthesia.
- Prescription drug errors—Prescription medications are powerful substances that can manage patients’ symptoms and promote healing. But they can be dangerous when they’re administered in dosages that are too large or too small for individual patients—or when they’re the wrong medications altogether.
It’s important to call your doctor and get in touch with a lawyer right away if you think you’re a victim of medical malpractice.
