If you need advice about your legal options in the aftermath of a surgeon's error, contact Kreindler & Kreindler LLP for a free consultation with a New York City surgical errors attorney. Our experience with medical malpractice claims of all kinds can help you understand your legal options for recovering personal injury or wrongful death damages caused by negligence in surgery.
Like other medical malpractice cases, surgical negligence litigation depends on your lawyer's ability to prove through qualified expert testimony that a medical professional's departure from a recognized standard of care caused your losses. You can expect the defense to dispute your claims on any of several grounds: The defendant professionals violated no recognized standard of care, your losses were primarily caused by other circumstances or health problems, or the nature and extent of your losses are less serious than claimed.
