Were You Injured Due to Medical Malpractice in NYC?
Talk to a New York Personal Injury Attorney
Did you know that in NY, you have only 30 months from the date of your injury or the onset of your illness to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the negligent party/parties. If you fail to file within this statute of limitations period, New York law precludes you from obtaining any compensation from the responsible party/parties. That is why it's important for you to contact a medical malpractice attorney like Daniella Levi as soon as you can so she can review your case and prove negligence:
Failure to diagnose, delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis
Failure to order the proper lab tests or failure to properly interpret those ordered
Administration of the wrong medications or improper anesthesia dosage
Failure to obtain the proper informed consent to a treatment or procedure
Improper surgical technique (e.g. leaving a foreign object in the patient’s body)
Failure to sufficiently communicate with other members of the health team
So, if you sustained an injury due to the negligence of a health care professional or the entity for which they work, contact Attorney Levi today for a Free Consultation.

What is the statute of limitations in a medical malpractice case?
In New York, medical malpractice claims must be filed within 2.5 years from the date of the alleged negligent action or omission that caused the patient’s injury.
Can I sue my doctor if he did not tell me about the risks of a procedure?
If a patient believes their doctor failed to inform them of the risks of a procedure, and the patient sustained an injury as a result, the patient may be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim.
Whom can I sue if a nurse gave me the wrong medication?
A charge of negligence against a nurse can arise from almost any action or failure to act that results in patient injury-most often, an unintentional failure to adhere to a standard of clinical practice-and may lead to a malpractice lawsuit.
I am not happy with the outcome of my care. Is that medical malpractice?
If you had a medically necessary surgery or an elective surgery, and you weren’t happy with the results, it doesn’t mean that you can sue for medical malpractice. In order to have a valid medical malpractice claim, you will need a doctor/patient relationship, evidence that the surgeon was negligent and that the negligence caused you harm such as pain, deformity or disability.
What kind of damages can I recover in a medical malpractice case?
The damages you can recover in a medical malpractice case can compensate you for the harm you suffered because of a healthcare professional’s medical negligence. They include economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages include:
Reduced earnings capacity
Non-economic damages include:
Pain and suffering
Loss of enjoyment of life
