What should I do if I believe my doctor committed medical malpractice?
If you believe that your doctor committed medical malpractice, the most important thing you can do is consult with an attorney that's experienced in medical malpractice litigation, and do it soon. One of the things that we find in handling these cases is that doctors are often able to sort of hide what has actually gone on in their records by using extensive medical terminology, and at the end of the day, the truth is, in New York, a doctor is not obligated to tell you if they've actually committed malpractice against you.
So, what you really need to do is find an attorney early who can look at the records, go through all your medical records, and then that attorney will consult with a doctor, which is required in New York, before filing a lawsuit. And, here at Faruqi & Faruqi, this is the kind of litigation that we handle frequently. Contact us.
