Medical Malpractice in New York

Don't let your suffering go unnoticed!

While medical malpractice seems like something that only happens on TV shows, it can happen in any hospital or doctor's office across the country. A doctor's negligence can bring unwanted pain and suffering that requires even further medical attention.

It can be difficult to claim deserved compensation after medical malpractice has occurred, but Durante, Bock & Tota, PLLC is equipped with the skills needed for such a case. Our Yorktown Heights medical malpractice lawyer has nearly 30 years of experience and will do whatever it takes to secure a positive outcome for you.

What can I be compensated for?

Medical malpractice can occur for a variety of reasons, including a misdiagnosis, failing to warn a patient of known risks, and inadequate or incompetent treatment.

In order to prove that malpractice took place, you must prove several factors:

  • Proof that there was a doctor-patient relationship
  • Proof that the doctor's carelessness caused your injuries
  • Proof that the doctor exhibited negligence
  • Proof that the injury resulted in actual suffering

In order to be able to file a lawsuit against your doctor, there must be specific damage that occurred, such as physical discomfort, medical bills for your care, lost wages, and mental anguish. The state of New York has a statute of limitations which states that you have up to two and a half years from the date of the injury to file a medical malpractice claim.
