Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Few people look forward to visiting the doctor. We usually seek medical care when we are injured or have fallen ill, and in these situations we expect that the doctor, nurse or other medical professional we deal with will be accurate in their diagnosis and diligent in their treatment. We also expect to receive proper treatment and care for routine check-ups, dental care, plastic surgery, prenatal care and in the delivery of a new baby. Unfortunately, the medical care we actually receive is not always up to accepted standards. If you or someone you know has been the victim of medical malpractice of any kind, you have the right to hold the caregiver or facility responsible for their negligence.

Finding a medical malpractice attorney is crucial if you have been injured by a doctor's inexperience, carelessness or outright negligence. We built this directory to offer you a valuable source of information related to medical malpractice laws and lawsuits in the U.S. and also to help you find and compare qualified professionals in your area.

Firm Spotlight

Finding the right lawyer can be difficult, particularly when you are dealing with as complex a legal matter as a medical malpractice lawsuit. With a long history of representing the injured and a track record that includes more than $3 billion in verdicts and settlements, the team at Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP stands ready to represent injured patients across New York and throughout the U.S.

Medical malpractice is one of the most dangerous forms of negligence. It occurs when a doctor, surgeon, nurse or other professional in the health care field fails to provide a standard level of care to a patient, resulting in the injury or death of that patient. Medical professionals have an obligation to provide a level of care that is in accordance with their training and education and the resources at hand. They must take care to accurately diagnose patients, to develop proper treatment plans and to ensure these are carried out as they should be. They must also follow specific rules and laws when it comes to treating patients, such as getting informed consent prior to administering treatment. A single mistake or act of wrongdoing could cost a patient his or her life.

Handling medical malpractice lawsuits is no easy task. These cases are complex; doctors and medical facilities may have entire teams of attorneys to counteract such legal actions. With more than 150 years of combined experience and the resources to go up against even the most formidable of opponents inside and outside of the courtroom, Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik takes on medical malpractice lawsuits with confidence and competence. The firm handles these cases on a contingent fee basis, meaning you pay no legal fees unless your case is won.
