Medical malpractice victims need a staunch legal representation with significant experience bringing injury claims against workers in the medical field. Fortunately, you’re in the right place. Our New York City & Westchester County personal injury attorney has extensive experience fighting for malpractice victims, and he is prepared to fight for you, too.
COMMON ACTS OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
As you can imagine, medical malpractice is not restricted to one specific mistake. Physicians can commit malpractice in many different ways. Some of the most common types of malpractice that our firm sees are as follows:
- Diagnosis errors (e.g. delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose, or misdiagnosis)
- Surgical errors (e.g. leaving surgical instruments in the body, anesthesia errors, or wrong-site surgery)
- Medication errors (e.g. prescribing the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of medication)
- Birth injuries (e.g. Erb’s palsy or cerebral palsy)
PROVING YOUR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIM
To win a medical malpractice claim, you and your New York City & Westchester County medical malpractice lawyer must prove several things. They are as follows:
- You were the physician’s patient.
- The physician owed you a duty of care.
- The physician breached that duty of care by taking an action that an otherwise reasonable physician would not have taken.
- The breach of care directly harmed you.
- The breach of care caused you to sustain significant damages.
As long as you can prove that you were harmed as a direct result of an act of medical malpractice, you should receive compensation to help you recover from the physical, emotional, and financial burdens you’ve incurred.
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIMS IN NYS
While the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in New York State is three years, this is not the case when it comes to medical malpractice claims. In New York, you are required to file your medical malpractice claim within 2.5 years of the date the incident occurred. This means that if you wait any longer than 2.5 years from the date of the malpractice, you will most likely permanently lose your right to sue. Our firm is prepared to assist you today.

José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.
- Elizabeth S.
Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.

Jose stuck with me in a very difficult case that many other lawyers would not even take on. It was a three-year battle and luckily with Jose’s help I was not charged criminally. Jose pays very close attention to details and his responses to the opposing side were thorough and full of substance.
