Injured by Medical Malpractice?
Western New York Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Each year, thousands of people die as the result of medical mistakes. Despite our high expectations when we place our lives and the lives of loved ones in their hands, medical care providers do make mistakes – sometimes with dire consequences. If the error causes injury to you or a loved one, especially if it was due to carelessness or negligence, you want things made right and you want those responsible kept from repeating the mistakes.
The medical malpractice lawyers at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zoshunderstand the sense of betrayal a patient can feel when a trusted doctor or other health care provider commits an error that causes harm. We work with people in Western New York to demand accountability from the medical professionals whose actions jeopardize the health, and possibly the life, of patients.
Medical Malpractice Takes Many Forms
Medical malpractice can occur in any area of medical practice and any phase of patient care, including:
- Delayed diagnosis
- Missed diagnosis
- Absence of informed consent
- Birth injuries
- Defects in medical devices
- Misread slides, ultrasounds and X-rays
- Pharmaceutical/medication errors
- HMO misconduct
- Dental malpractice
- Nursing home neglect and abuse
Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers of Western New York Can Help You
Pursuing a medical malpractice claim can be expensive and time-consuming and not every personal injury law firm will take on such cases. Many in the medical community refuse to corroborate evidence of wrongdoing by their colleagues, so winning the lawsuit is rarely a foregone conclusion. Our legal team at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh draw on medical malpractice case experience and resources like specialists and experts to prepare a compelling case that will stand up in court.
Once we’ve proven a medical provider is guilty of malpractice and liable for the injuries and other harm resulting from that malpractice, we show the damages our client suffered and the compensation needed to restore the client’s health and well-being. The costs to make things right can include doctor and hospital expenses, ongoing therapy, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and lost wages, among others. Our lawsuit demands compensation to cover all of those expenses, and we may seek punitive damages, as well.
Punitive damages are typically awarded in medical malpractice cases to punish the person, or persons, causing harm and prevent them from hurting other people.
