Medical Malpractice

When a doctor or medical professional makes a mistake or overlooks a medical condition, the long-term consequences can be devastating.  Individuals who have been injured because of a doctor's negligence may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.  Tarver Law Firm helps victims of medical, dental, and podiatric malpractice obtain just compensation for their pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when the actions of a doctor, or medical provider, fall below, or deviates, from the appropriate standard of care and causes an injury to a patient.  Some common types of medical malpractice claims include:

What is Informed Consent?

A medical malpractice case can also be brought if a doctor or medical professional fails to obtain the  "informed consent" of an injured patient.  This means the doctor must inform the patient of the possible risks, benefits, and alternatives to any treatment, surgery or medical procedure, and obtain the patient's consent to continue.

Why You Need an Attorney for a Medical Malpractice Claim

Medical malpractice law is highly complicated and claims of medical negligence are very difficult to prove.  These cases require a thorough investigation that involves, among other things, obtaining and analyzing all the relevant medical records as well as a medical expert that will affirmatively state that your doctor or medical provider not only deviated from the standard of care when treating you but also caused your injuries as a result.  In addition, there is a limited amount of time to file a medical malpractice lawsuit under New York State law.

Tarver Law Firm has experience in a wide range of medical malpractice cases, including those that result in major medical injuries and wrongful death.  We collaborate with qualified medical experts to assist with litigation both in and out of court.  If you, or someone you love, has suffered a serious injury as the result of the negligence of a doctor, hospital, nurse, or other medical professional or facility, call our offices today for a free evaluation of your case.
