Under New York law, medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or medical provider departs from accepted standards of practice, and this departure causes an injury or death to the patient. We have handled hundreds of cases involving surgical errors, failure to make a proper or timely diagnosis of an obvious condition, delays in providing surgical treatment, failure to properly interpret an x-ray or other radiological study, failure to obtain consent for treatment or procedures, birth injuries, anesthesia errors, bed sores, delay in performance of necessary procedures, ophthalmological errors, medication errors and many others. Since a poor outcome or bad result following medical treatment is not necessarily malpractice, it is important to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney with access to medical experts to properly evaluate your potential claim.

Leder is uniquely equipped to handle your case and get you the compensation you deserve as a victim of medical malpractice. All initial consultations are free.
