Why It Is Important to Hire an Experienced Lawyer

What Is Necessary to Establish Medical Malpractice?
If you believe your potential medical malpractice case has merit, please contact us for immediate assistance.
Most medical malpractice and negligence cases hinge on the definition of a medical standard of care. This standard supersedes the reasonable expectation for individuals to act prudently to keep others safe. However, it may vary based on factors such as a patient’s age, medical history, or the nature of an illness. To establish medical malpractice, the attorneys at Peters Berger Koshel & Goldberg, P.C. in Brooklyn, NY will prove the care you or your loved one received deviated from the level of care that a reasonable doctor would deliver under similar circumstances. Additionally, we will argue on your behalf to prove this negligent treatment caused harm that would not have occurred if you were treated properly.
We are adept at proving medical malpractice in situations such as:
- Anesthesia errors
- Birth injuries
- Emergency room errors
- Failure to diagnose an individual
- Prescription errors
Understanding Who Can Be Held Accountable
You might be able to claim medical malpractice even if you received the proper care from your physician. Though most people think of medical malpractice through the lens of a patient-doctor relationship, its scope is much broader.
Under New York state laws, any of the following parties can be held liable for medical malpractice or negligence:
