New York medical malpractice attorney Kenneth A. Pryor has almost 25 years of trial experience, and his practice has focused on personal injury and wrongful death litigation since 1997. His results for victims of medical negligence include a wide variety of cases, such as a $250,000 award for burns suffered by an infant surgical patient at a Bronx Hospital and a $1 million jury verdict for a Bronx woman whose facial scars were worsened by the plastic surgeon attempting to improve them.
The Pryor Law Firm offers free consultations in all medical malpractice cases. Clients also benefit from our ability to advance the expenses of evaluating and developing negligence claims against medical professionals. Because malpractice claims usually need the support of doctors qualified to express opinions about the performance of the potential defendant, it is not unusual to have to spend thousands of dollars in expert witness fees. We only recover these costs after we recover money for you through a settlement of your claim or a verdict at trial.
Meeting the Challenge of Complex Medical Malpractice Litigation
Not every bad outcome for a patient will support a medical malpractice lawsuit, and not every mistake by a doctor or nurse will lead to a settlement or damages award. However, there are many cases where medical malpractice lawsuits are clearly justified and the patient deserves to be compensated for damages caused by medical errors. In order to win a claim of medical malpractice, your lawyer needs to prove that the defendant’s mistakes were of the kind that similar medical professionals would not to commit. We also need to show the causal relationship between the medical error and the patient’s worsened condition.
Examples of the kinds of medical malpractice cases we handle include:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of illnesses like cancer, heart disease or stroke
- Negligence in emergency medicine
- Errors in prescribing or administering medications
- Claims against hospitals for negligence in postoperative care or allowing infections to spread
- Surgical errors, such as operating on the wrong organ or leaving surgical tools in body cavities
- Anesthesia errors
Some cases of medical malpractice involve multiple defendants, such as family doctors, radiologists, specialists in fields like oncology or neurology, surgeons and specialized nurse practitioners. Each might blame the others for the patient’s serious injury or death, and all might confuse the causation issues.
