The Medical Malpractice Process

  • Establishing grounds for medical malpractice is
    the first thing you must ensure before taking
    legal action against the medical professional you
    believe caused your injury. In order to establish
    grounds for a medical malpractice suit, the
    healthcare professional must have acted or failed
    to act in a manner that was proper for your care
    and treatment, and which resulted in personal
    injuries.

Filing for Medical Malpractice
  • You will need to retain the services of a medical
    malpractice personal injury lawyer familiar with
    the laws. During your initial consultation, it is
    a good idea to bring along any medical records,
    documents, and other forms that can help
    establish grounds for filing your suit.
  • Do not worry if you are not in possession of all
    such records. Your lawyer will review what you
    have and let you know what other documentation
    they will need to obtain. In many cases, they
    will have you sign an authorization for release
    of your medical records.

Investigation Process
  • Your lawyer will conduct an investigation wherein
    they will consult with other medical experts,
    gather the required documentation, and start to
    build your case. Once they have everything they
    need, they will file a complaint in the
    appropriate court. In New York, cases valued at
    more than 25,000 are filed in New York Supreme
    Court. For values under 25,000, the case is
    filed at the Civil Court level.

Summons Issued
  • One your case has been filed in court by your New
    York personal injury attorney, the next step is
    to have the summons and complaint served on all
    parties you are suing. This could include the
    medical professional, the healthcare facility
    they are employed by, and others. Your injury
    lawyer will determine if more than one party was
    negligent and responsible for your injuries.

Proceed to Trial
  • During the trial, both your lawyer and the
    defendants lawyer can call witnesses, experts,
    and others to the witness stand to provide
    evidence. Any witnesses called to the stand are
    sworn in and can be cross-examined by the other
    partys lawyer.

Can the Verdict Be Appealed?
  • As you can see, how long does a medical
    malpractice suit take to go from filing to award
    largely depends on the specific circumstances of
    your case and the willingness to negotiate fair
    settlements by the insurance company. Our lawyers
    understand you might start to feel frustrated
    because it is taking so long. However, just
    remember that we are working in your best
    interests to ensure you receive a fair and just
    settlement.
  • If you were or a loved one was injured due to the
    negligence of a medical professional or another
    healthcare provider, it is in your best interests
    to speak with our personal injury New York.
