Medical malpractice defense can involve more than doctors

Contrary to what some people may think, doctors are not the only healthcare professionals who make mistakes in the course of their professional duties. In New York and elsewhere, medical professionals of all sorts, including the health care facilities that employ them, can be accused of wrongdoing and face medical malpractice claims against them. When this occurs, those accused may need a medical malpractice defense. 

A medical malpractice claim may be filed against anesthesiologists if there is a problem concerning the administration of anesthesia. Nurses can also be susceptible to claims of malpractice for any issues that arise with the care or medications they provide to patients. Physical therapists, dentists and virtually any other medical professional that takes on any role in caring for or treating patients can be the target of legal actions.

Health care facilities can also suffer greatly when lawsuits are filed against them. Nursing homes and long-term care facilities are frequent targets of malpractice claims. A hospital can also face claims for monetary damages when an incident resulting in injury or death occurs on its premises.

A malpractice case can be costly. In some circumstances, the medical professional may be at risk of losing the right to work in New York. The accused person's license to practice, career goals and finances can all be at risk, as can those of a medical facility. Our firm understands the scope of medical malpractice defense needs, and we have more information on our website about available defense options for those in New York who are facing such legal claims.
