That’s a devastating statistic and though not all hospital mistakes lead to death, they can easily lead to chronic pain and severe injury for the unlucky patient. However, the burden of proving that a member or most of the healthcare team were negligent is on the plaintiff. This is why you should work with an experienced NYC medical malpractice attorney to fight for your case in court.
The basic premise of any medical malpractice case is that you need to prove that the medical professional(s) who treated you were negligent and that you suffered harm because of this negligence. The first step that skilled NYC medical malpractice lawyers like those from The Law Offices of Joseph Lichtenstein would take is to try and establish the standards of care that a patient is entitled to. This refers to what sort of treatment a patient should have received.
