Medical Malpractice Fatalities

Someone Else’s Negligence Should Not Go Unnoticed

The Perecman Firm fights on behalf of individuals who were victims of medical negligence by holding the responsible doctors and physicians accountable.

We Have Secured Millions for Victims of Medical Negligence

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our New York City medical malpractice lawyers help clients pursue wrongful death claims for medical negligence. Our attorneys have been practicing medical malpractice and wrongful death law in New York for more than 40 years.

When people put their lives in the hands of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals, they deserve to be treated with the utmost care and respect. Unfortunately, healthcare providers who do not follow professional standards can make fatal mistakes. When poor medical practice results in death, bereaved families and loved ones have the right to hold the responsible party accountable.

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 such as 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 endure. 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 potentially fatal injuries to patients.
