Our Services To You — Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable

We must prove that the medical professional did not follow accepted standards of care, that you as the patient were harmed because of this failure and that you suffered damages because of the medical professional's negligent misdiagnosis.

There is a high bar to proving medical negligence, and medical professionals typically have very experienced and well-financed lawyers on their side to defend their actions and minimize your settlement to the furthest extent possible.

Our Bronx-based attorneys handle a full realm of misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis cases throughout the city, including:

  • Misdiagnosis of cancer, which can make a patient's chances of succeeding in the early stages of the disease much more difficult
  • Misdiagnosis of a heart condition, heart attack or stroke, which can cause permanent brain damage, cardiovascular damage or death
  • Misdiagnosis of infection, which can lead to a wide range of complications, including death

Improper screening for diseases and conditions or failure to perform appropriate medical diagnostic tests is difficult to prove. Our team will work aggressively on your behalf to prove that medical failures were avoidable mistakes and that you deserve maximum compensation for past and future damages.
