You trusted your doctor with your health, your life. But your doctor failed you. You feel worse than you did before. In fact, you’re seriously ill due to your doctor’s negligence or incompetence. Then again, perhaps it’s not you but a member of your family who has been hurt by their own physician. Maybe a loved one even died because of such malpractice.
Either way, you’re frightened. The whole medical system is built on trust. If you can’t trust your doctor, whom can you trust?
Those worries come in addition to the other concerns you probably have: pain, possible disability, medical bills, and loss of income. How you will support your family if you can’t work? What do you do?
You need an experienced medical malpractice attorney. A lawyer who knows the challenges of going head to head with the medical establishment and comes out winning – for the patient! While there’s not much we can do to help your health, we may be able to help you with the financial fall-out of your doctor’s failure to do right by you.
The Law Offices of Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP have been dedicated to helping their clients for over 60 years. Started by our senior partner Harvey A. Sackstein, Esq., in 1952, we pride ourselves in providing our clients with an exceptional level of care. Our attorneys are among the most knowledgeable and competent you can find anywhere. Together with our diligent staff they will be happy to address all of your needs.
Whether you live in the five boroughs, Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, New York County, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester or even New Jersey, let us assist you with your medical malpractice case. We recognize the importance of effective communication, so we have both Spanish and Korean speaking bilingual attorneys and legal assistants on our staff to help you and your family.
In fact, miscommunication is one of many reasons why medical care can go awry. It is so important to communicate precisely, and many doctor’s offices or hospitals may stumble when it comes to language or cultural barriers. But that’s no excuse for substandard care.
Medical care is a complex and challenging field, and doctors are expected to live up to a high standard. That’s why they go through years of training, and that’s why we pay them so much money!
But something went wrong. Your doctors didn’t take that care. They didn’t recognize what they should have seen when looking at x-rays or lab results. A condition that may have been treatable has turned into a life-threatening situation because of the delayed diagnosis. Or maybe the diagnosis was just plain wrong.
Maybe your doctor didn’t take your complaints seriously and sent you home with the two aspirins – or even called you a hypochondriac. Now, you have to deal with the consequences.
Then again, perhaps you had surgery, and the surgeon operated on the wrong body part. Maybe he left you disfigured instead of improved after a case of botched plastic surgery. Perhaps you were given drugs to which you were allergic, the wrong drugs altogether, or the right drugs in the wrong dose. Maybe their improper hygiene resulted in a life-threatening infection.
There are many other possibilities: Improperly administered anesthesia. Understaffed hospital. Incompetent interns. Spinal injuries or bedsores due to improper care. The invariable result: you were not properly taken care of and have suffered serious health consequences because of it.
While it’s easy to see that something like that isn’t right and should never have happened, it’s not easy to get compensation for the pain and suffering that have resulted from such lack of care. Medical malpractice cases are notoriously hard to win because there are so many variations and pitfalls.
In order to win such a case, you have to prove that serious and usually permanent damage has been done, and that this damage was directly caused by a doctor’s negligence, incompetence, or mistake. That can be a challenge to prove in a field where outcome is never totally guaranteed (all those disclaimers they make you sign!) and where things can occasionally go wrong through no fault of the doctor or the hospital.
It takes an expert to navigate that minefield. And, of course, doctors and insurance companies have their own powerful lobbies and have worked hard at stacking the deck in their favor.
At Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP, we have the experience needed to navigate that minefield, and a solid track record of helping victims of medical malpractice and their families.
Be sure to take action soon – we don’t want you to miss your chance at getting compensation because of a lapsed Statute of Limitations!
Now you may wonder: how much will all that cost you?
The consultation is free, and while there may be expenses, you won’t have to pay any legal fees unless and until we win your case. Of course, there are never any guarantees.
