Hospital Malpractice And Medical Negligence Claims In New York City
Doctors and other medical professionals have a responsibility to provide a standard level of care to patients and to ensure that patients are never exposed to unreasonable or unnecessary health risks. Unfortunately, doctors do not always live up to this responsibility and patients are the ones who are left to deal with the physical and financial burdens.
It takes an experienced medical malpractice attorney to define the applicable standards, to show how those standards were violated and to pursue a claim of medical malpractice after establishing a clear link between the negligence and the resulting injuries. At the law firm of Paul B. Weitz & Associates, PC, we are equipped to handle medical malpractice cases in New York and have recovered significant verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients.
