Pursuing Claims for All Types of Medical Malpractice Fatalities

If the death of your spouse, parent or child could have been avoided if a doctor or nurse had been more careful, you deserve an opportunity to hold the negligent party accountable. Our firm pursues wrongful death claims for circumstances including but not limited to the following:
  • Failure to diagnose cancer: Any delay in the diagnosis of cancer can significantly reduce the patient’s chances of survival. If a doctor or other medical provider caused a fatal delay by failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing your loved one, your family may have a medical malpractice claim.
  • Birth injuries: The loss of a child as a result of a fatal birth injury is one of the most traumatic experiences anyone can possibly go through. Our experienced wrongful death lawyers pursue malpractice claims against obstetricians and other medical professionals.
  • Emergency room errors: Emergency room nurses and doctors have a responsibility to assess which patients need care immediately. If you have lost a loved one as a result of a heart attack, stroke or other emergency that wasn’t treated soon enough, we can help.
  • Surgical errors: Any type of surgery, including laparoscopic surgery, comes with significant risks, which is why there are specific steps that surgeons and nurses must follow in order to reduce the risk of serious and potentially fatal injuries to patients.
Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the types of compensation that are available under New York wrongful death law and will work diligently to maximize the value and the impact of your case. Let us put our experience and passion to work for you.
