The Nassau County medical malpractice attorneys at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath Coffinas & Cannavo, P.C. are advocates for patients who have been injured by medical malpractice. We believe that medical professionals should be held accountable for negligent medical care. We also believe that those who have been injured by negligent medical care should be compensated for their losses.
We know that a financial recovery for your malpractice claim will not help with your physical recovery; however, it may help you and your family recover in other ways. Financial compensation can help to pay for your medical bills. It can also help you feel financially secure for future medical expenses related to your injuries.
Medical practices and professionals are held to a high standard of care. Patients put their full faith and trust in the medical profession, and the consequences of mistakes can be devastating to patients and their loved ones. In order to prove medical malpractice, you must prove that you received negligent care and that you were injured as a result.
Medical professionals are allowed to make mistakes, and not all mistakes amount to medical negligence. To prove medical negligence, you must show that the medical professional’s care fell below the medical standard of care. Even when a medical professional provides substandard medical care, it only amounts to medical malpractice when that negligent care results in injuries.
We know that medical bills can add up quickly and become unmanageable. Sometimes injured patients require around the clock care and injury accommodations, which add to their expenses. We also know that when patients suffer debilitating injuries, they lose income due to missed work.
When you are injured and have significant medical expenses, you may not have room in your budget for attorneys’ fees. Our attorneys do not charge for initial consultations and case evaluations. They also take medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee basis. You will not pay any attorneys’ fees until we have helped you secure compensation for your claim.
