How do you file a medical malpractice claim?

If you go to your doctor or to a hospital for treatment, it is bad enough if they are unable to provide a cure or an effective method of managing your symptoms. However, this can be made a hundred times worse if instead you are misdiagnosed or given false hope and the wrong treatment.

Most medical professionals in New York go above and beyond to ensure that their patients receive the best care possible. However, there are sadly still those that do not work with due diligence. Their mistakes can exacerbate illnesses, cause limitless pain and suffering and even cost lives.

If you are the victim of medical malpractice, it is understandable that you might feel angry or upset. You may also consider filing a claim against those responsible. This is often an effective way not only to acquire some financial compensation for your injuries, but also to highlight issues within a hospital or medical practice, so they can be dealt with.

If you plan to file a claim, you should first contact the responsible medical professional. There may be a way for them to make amends. If this is unsuccessful, your next step is to get in touch with the medical licensing board and to arrange a medical assessment to confirm the harm caused to you.

As is explained here, there is a set period of time within which you need to file your claim for it to be considered valid. An attorney can advise you about the exact amount of time you have and may also be able to support you through the process of seeking justice and compensation for the harm done.
