How Do I Choose A Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Hauppauge

When a doctor or medical professional has failed you as a result of medical malpractice, it can lead to solemn trust issues. You may have considered filing a medical malpractice suit, but you must have the right lawyer for the job. Having top-notch representation can help ensure damages you are entitled to are recouped. At Birzon & Associates, you can work with a healthcare attorney in Hauppauge, who will give you some of the best legal representation in the state.               

 

Can I File a Medical Malpractice Suit?

Before you begin the process of looking for representation, understanding what medical malpractice is will benefit you and help understand how the process works. No matter where you go, a certain standard of care is held to all medical practitioners. If you have been injured, harmed, or suffered damages due to a deviation from this standard, you may have been a victim of medical malpractice. 

Questions For Your Lawyer

After you have determined you want to move forward with filing a malpractice suit, you must find a lawyer who can produce strong legal skills and communication. At Birzon & Associates, we are confident you will find the right healthcare attorney in Hauppauge that will be best suited for your needs. However, we understand it is important that our clients do their due diligence so they can be confident in their decisions. Some important questions you can ask before committing to a lawyer could include the following:

  • How experienced is the lawyer?
  • How will the lawyer find medical experts?
  • Are you and the lawyer a good fit to work together?

We want our clients to feel comfortable working with us and are willing to answer any questions you have. That is why we feel we are best suited to answer all of these questions. You can have faith that we have the most qualified staff that is determined to see your damages be recouped. You can also look at our testimonials page to see just how we’ve helped other clients as well.    

Damages That Can Be Received

Once you are confident in teaming up with Birzon & Associates, we will work with you to put together a winning case. The damages you may be able to receive after a successful case include both compensatory and punitive damages. Your financial losses will be taken into account when determining compensatory damages, while punitive damages are a form of punishment placed on the defendant. Punitive damages can only be awarded when the plaintiff is found guilty of malicious or willful misconduct.  

Choosing a lawyer to represent you can be a daunting task, but not an impossible one.  We are confident that after you’ve done your research, you will find that Birzon & Associates has the healthcare attorney in Hauppauge. If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, contact us today.  

How Long Does it Take to Settle a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

Has a recent trip to the doctor or medical practitioner left you worse off than when you walked in? Have you been forced to empty your savings to deal with a doctor’s poor care? Do you feel like your last medical appointment was not up to its usual standards?  If the answer is yes to these questions, you may be a victim of medical malpractice. At Birzon & Associates, our medical malpractice lawyer in Hauppauge can help determine if you are a victim, and what can be done to right this wrong.             

What is Medical Malpractice

If you are looking to file a medical malpractice suit, you will be one of between 15,000 and 19,000 claims against doctors each year. But what takes place during medical malpractice? Healthcare providers are held to a certain standard of care. Falling below this standard, and creating harm for the patient, is considered medical malpractice.  

Requirements Needed for A Claim

To show you are the victim of medical malpractice, you will need to be able to prove the following specifications:

  • A doctor-patient relationship existed.
  • The doctor was negligent.
  • The doctor’s negligence caused the injury.
  • The injury led to specific damages.

A medical malpractice lawyer in Hauppauge can use all the facts of your case to help prove the above information.

Lawsuit

Once you feel confident that you were the victim of medical malpractice, you can file a lawsuit to seek justice for the wrong-doing. Before the case ever reaches trial, both parties may agree and settle outside of court. Should your claim end up going to trial, however, your lawyer must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant was negligent in their care. The judge will hear your case and come to a verdict based on facts that were presented. If the judge rules in your favor, they will determine what damages you receive. Damages you may be entitled to could potentially include the following:

  • Compensatory – economic damages awarded to cover the plaintiff’s past or future losses.
  • Punitive – can only be awarded if the defendant is found guilty of malicious or willful misconduct, used specifically to punish the defendant.

While there is every possibility an agreement can be reached before a case ever hits trial, there is no guarantee of this developing. Unfortunately, there are no set timelines for a medical malpractice suit to be resolved due to the variables within each case. However, Birzon & Associates will work towards closing your case as swiftly as possible and with extensive attention to detail.  A medical malpractice suit can be physically, mentally, and financially draining. You may want to file a lawsuit, but are worried about depleting your wallet even more than it already has been as a result of this situation. Do not fret about putting your trust in Birzon & Associates. We will pair you with a medical malpractice lawyer in Hauppauge whose main goal is to help you win your case.
