Accomplished NYC Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight for Injured Patients
Dedicated law firm holds negligent healthcare providers accountable
When you visit a physician or other healthcare provider, you have the right to expect a certain level of competence. Unfortunately, studies have shown that medical and surgical errors are the leading cause of preventable injury in the country. If you’ve been harmed by a healthcare provider you trusted, The Tacopina Injury Firm is prepared to help. For more than 20 years, our dedicated attorneys have fought for injured clients, including patients who were harmed by substandard medical care. We thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your injury, and if there is evidence of negligence, we pursue the maximum level of compensation possible.
Meticulous care in building a compelling case for malpractice
There are several elements a plaintiff must prove to establish medical malpractice. There must be evidence a provider was careless and that the carelessness caused injury. Examples of medical malpractice include:
- A missed diagnosis of cancer or heart disease
- Prescribing the wrong medication or the wrong dosage
- Failing to check for dangerous drug interactions when prescribing medication
- Anesthesia errors causing a patient to awaken during surgery or depriving the patient of oxygen
- Surgical “never events,” such as performing the wrong procedure, operating on the wrong side of the body, or leaving instruments in a body cavity
- Causing damage with a careless incision
- Allowing post-surgical infection to occur
It’s important to understand that medicine is a complex science, so a doctor cannot be found negligent if other reasonably well-trained doctors could have made a similar mistake. Evidence must show the doctor’s performance was below an acceptable professional standard.
Compensation for the full extent of harm
Medical malpractice can have serious consequences. Cancer patients can go from an easily treatable Stage I cancer to a life-threatening Stage IV malignancy that requires radical treatment. Surgical errors often need corrective surgery. We consult qualified medical experts to understand the full extent of the harm you’ve suffered so we can aggressively pursue the maximum amount of compensation.
