MEDICAL MALPRACTICE When the Stakes Are High, Victims Choose Levy Konigsberg

Medical Malpractice

Every year, over 225,000 individuals die from medical errors. It is a common misconception that the majority of medical malpractice lawsuits arise because of mistakes in the operating room. In fact, most medical malpractice cases are the result of misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, diagnostic error, or the failure by hospital staff to follow doctors’ prescriptions or instructions. Unfortunately, such errors can carry enormous consequences, for example, if an eye doctor fails to recognize the symptoms of glaucoma, blindness can set in.

With over 25 years of experience, Levy Konigsberg LLP has extensive experience in handling medical and hospital malpractice cases. The firm has represented numerous clients who were the victims of professional negligence. Our clients have included the families of people who have committed suicide as a result psychiatric malpractice, as well as victims of hospital malpractice whereby, for example, a failure to medicate or diagnose an ailment has led to severe repercussions, such as brain damage.

Diminished Quality of Life

A delayed or misdiagnosed heart attack, or appendicitis, can have immediate and catastrophic consequences. However, with regard to a disease such as cancer, a delayed or incorrect diagnosis often leads to a much poorer prognosis, and limited treatment options, once the disease is finally discovered. If such an event occurs, the result may be a diminished quality of life and an increased chance of remission.

Further examples of medical malpractice include: unnecessary surgery, medication errors, contaminated blood transfusions, and infections in hospital and clinical settings.

Responsible parties may include doctors, nurses, hospitals, physical therapists, pharmacists, chiropractors, and podiatrists.

If you or a loved one has suffered from any of the following, you may be entitled to compensation:

  • Missed or delayed diagnosis for cancer;
