Any person in New York or elsewhere who seeks medical attention of any kind obviously places a certain amount of trust in those providing care. Each year, thousands of people are injured through medical malpractice. Some of these injuries are minor while others are far more serious, perhaps even debilitating.
Suffering serious injury because of substandard medical care may cause more harm than the physical aspect of a situation. Depending on the circumstances, a person may be so badly injured that recovery requires full-time living assistance. In some cases, grief is intensified when victims are children of minor ages.
At Coughlin & Gerhart, LLP, we have successfully obtained millions of dollars in monetary damages by fighting for clients throughout the state. We understand that those who are already suffering physically may also endure financial hardships directly related to their medical injuries; therefore, we provide all our services on a contingent basis. This means that unless we obtain an agreeable settlement, or verdict on your behalf in court, you owe no legal fees.
Those injured because of misdiagnoses, surgical errors or other medical mistakes may require ongoing medical visits (sometimes, even further surgeries) in order to recover. By requesting a free consultation, our dedicated team of attorneys in New York will review a particular medical malpractice situation. We can investigate your claim and help you identify any possible source of liability. We can also help determine the maximum amount of damages to which you may be entitled in a successfully litigated claim.
