American doctors, surgeons and nurses are among the most highly trained medical professionals in the world. Unfortunately, they are also among the most overworked professionals in the nation.
A misdiagnosis or a mistake made in surgery can have a devastating effect on the patient, including a lifelong catastrophic illness or possible death.
At Kahn Gordon Timko & Rodriques P.C., our New York medical malpractice attorneys often talk with prospective clients who have suffered some amount of harm resulting from their doctor’s negligence. The courts know that doctors and nurses are human. Mistakes happen and recovering money in a medical malpractice lawsuit is becoming increasingly difficult. Unless there is a strong connection between the negligence and your actual financial losses, the courts are not likely to see the legal merit of your case. In short, if you can prove that a misdiagnosis or delay in treatment resulted in a longer and more costly recovery, you may have a case. But if the outcome of the medical condition would have been the same anyway, you are not likely to recover money damages.
