What is Medical Malpractice in New York City?
Medical malpractice is a legal claim designed to hold doctors, healthcare professionals, and their employers and hospitals responsible when they do not live up to a certain standard of care.
Although all medical care comes with some level of risk, healthcare providers in New York are legally obligated to perform their duties at a certain standard. That standard varies based on the situation. However, it is generally considered the type of care that a reasonably careful and prudent doctor or hospital would have provided under the same circumstances.
The money damages in these cases are largely intended to compensate an injured person for pain, suffering, and emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. Persons may also recover money damages for financial harm caused by the injury, which includes money for doctor’s bills, missed wages during recuperation, and any impact of the injury on the person’s long-term earning capacity.
In the tragic event that a person dies due to medical malpractice, their loved ones have the right to seek similar compensation for wrongful death.
