Medical Malpractice

Legal Help In Medical Negligence Claims

If a doctor, nurse or other health care professional made a mistake that causes you serious and permanent harm, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice claim and receive financial compensation for your losses.

The personal injury lawyers of Getz & Braverman, P.C., can tell you whether you have a valid claim. We pursue medical malpractice claims against medical professionals, hospitals and other health care providers.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

You can have a bad medical outcome and still not have a medical malpractice claim. In order to be successful in a malpractice case, we must prove the following:

  • The medical professional did not follow the accepted standard of care
  • The patient was harmed because of the failure to follow the accepted standard of care
  • The patient suffered damages because of the medical professional's negligence

Medical malpractice claims may involve:

  • Surgical errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Birth injuries due to medical mistakes during labor and delivery
  • Prescription errors
