Types of Medical Malpractice Claims
Not all medical malpractice cases are the same, and there are a variety of different claims one can make.
These claims include:
Mistakes when Prescribing and Administering Medication
When the doctor uses improper methods to treat a specific illness, they risk causing further harm to the patient.
These improper methods include procedures that cause you harm or incorrect medication prescriptions.
The doctor might also use the correct procedure but fail to execute it properly.
Misdiagnosis happens when the healthcare provider wrongly diagnoses a disease.
In this case, a qualified doctor would have given a different diagnosis that would have allowed you to seek proper treatment.
Not Being Truthful About the Risks Involved
If a doctor fails to inform the patient of all the known risks in any treatment or procedure, and it resulted in a patient’s injury or death, there is a possible case of medical malpractice.
Our NY medical malpractice attorneys represent patients in virtually all types of medical malpractice cases, including:
- Hospital negligence when malpractice occurs in a hospital setting

- Birth injuries to mothers and children
Medical Malpractice and COVID-19
In a pandemic, new opportunities for medical errors come to light. A study was done showing that doctors in the United States experienced some of the highest levels of burnout compared to doctors in other countries. As such, the chance of making a medical error is greater. That said, we likely won’t know the extent of medical malpractice claims due to COVID-19 issues until some years down the line.
