Medical Malpractice Lawsuits in Upstate New York
St. Lawrence County ∙ Jefferson County ∙ Franklin County
Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional (a doctor, nurse or other person responsible for patient care):
- Fails to act with the level of professional care that another doctor with similar training would use in a similar situation
- And the doctor's negligence results in serious and preventable injury or wrongful death
Medical malpractice lawsuits are complex and extremely difficult to prove. Doctors, nurses and hospitals will fight medical malpractice with every financial resource they have available.
