New York City (Manhattan, Long Island) Medical Malpractice and Negligence Attorneys
There is a bond of trust between medical professionals and their patients. Patients turn to doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers with the faith that they will provide, at the very least, competent care. When this bond of trust is breached by a medical professional, serious injuries and even wrongful death can result. Fortunately, patients who are harmed by the negligent actions, or failures to act, on the part of medical professionals can seek compensation for their losses and expenses by filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

- Medical Negligence
- Informed Consent
Healthcare professionals are expected to provide care of a certain standard. Although this standard is open to some interpretation, it is basically defined by how a competent professional would act in, or respond to, a given situation. If a professional acts, or fails to act, as a reasonable peer would in a similar situation, and an injury or death ensues, he or she can be found guilty of medical negligence.

Prior to any treatment, patients must be made aware of the details of the treatment, including any risks or potential side effects involved. If patients are not properly informed in advance of treatment, they may be subjecting themselves to dangerous procedures, medications, or other treatments to which they otherwise would not have consented. In such cases, medical professionals may be liable for any harm that results.
Conversely, the signing of a waiver or consent form does not absolve a medical professional from responsibility for his or her actions. While such contracts certainly protect healthcare providers and institutions whenever an unpreventable injury or death occurs, it will not protect them if the injury or death occurred due to their own negligence.
