Medical Malpractice Cases - Who Is Responsible for My Injury?

albany medical malpractice lawyers

Trusted Albany Medical Malpractice Attorneys

When we seek out medical treatment, we expect that our doctors will assess our full health condition and take steps to make things better. We expect our doctors to take responsibility for the care they are providing us, and to immediately and accurately address our concerns. Unfortunately, doctors may take active steps toward worsening your condition, especially in situations where you are working with numerous specialists for your various injuries.

At Powers & Santola, LLP., our New York City medical malpractice lawyers are here to help you determine whether a doctor is responsible for causing injuries as a result of medical malpractice or neglect. As a nationally recognized law firm, we focus our efforts on not just winning you the compensation you need, but also on providing you with the dedicated representation you deserve.

Ensuring Your Medical Care Providers Are Held Liable

For individuals who have suffered serious injuries, it is important that they have complete medical care to address all aspects of those injuries. Often, this means that one person could end up needing treatment from numerous specialists. Unfortunately, this results in no single doctor taking charge of the overall care and health of the patient, which allows each doctor to hide behind the argument that they cannot be held liable for medical malpractice because the injury was not part of their focused treatment.

We know how frustrating and confusing it can be to feel like your doctors are not looking out for your best interests. And we know that you likely feel angry and betrayed, knowing that your most recent injury was caused at the hands of a professional you trusted. We will do everything we can to determine who is liable so we can seek full and fair financial compensation for your injuries and losses.

Admitting, Attending and Referring Physicians

One challenge facing patients in medical malpractice cases is finding the doctor who is responsible for their care and injuries. With our medical system so streamlined and less personalized, it is common for a patient to see an admitting, attending and a referring physician during the course of treatment for one single injury. If this is what occurred in your situation, seek out our legal assistance. We can look at all the factors involved in your care, including your medical records, to determine whether we can bring a claim against any or all of your doctors for the further harm they caused you. We will also utilize the knowledge of medical experts when making such determinations.
