You Need to Know if You Have a Valid Medical Malpractice Case. You're in the Right Place! Let's Start Exploring Whether You Have a Valid Case...

I know you have questions about your medical care. You think a doctor or hospital staff was careless. That's why you're here.

I'd like to answer them.
But first, I need to know the following things...

(1) WHERE did this happen? (What town & what State?)

(2) WHEN did this happen?

(3) WHAT injury did you receive because of whatever was done wrong?

(4) Has any doctor CONFIRMED that something was done wrong?


I need to know this information before I can help answer your specific questions.

First, I need to know that this happened HERE in New York. That's where I practice. Nowhere else. If your matter happened in another State, then I could not help you. (However, I might be able to refer you to an excellent attorney in another State).

Second, I need to know WHEN this happened. I need to know whether your matter is still timely. Every type of legal case in New York has a time limit attached to it. The time limits are different for adults and for kids. The time limit is different for a municipal hospital compared to a private hospital. The time limit is different if you continued to see and treat with the same doctor who caused your problem. The time limit is different if your family member died and you're looking to see if you have a valid case.

Third, I need to know what injury you suffered because of the wrongdoing. Is it permanent? Is it disabling? Is it significant? This will tell me how severe your injuries are. You'll find that most really good experienced trial attorneys in New York will not take on cases that have minor or limited injuries. That's because an attorney spends a tremendous amount of time, energy and resources to prosecute a medical malpractice case. If a lawyer is going to invest his time and resources to help an injured patient, he wants to make a significant impact to help that victim.

Fourth, I want to know whether any doctor has confirmed your belief that something was done wrong. Most of the time you will not have spoken to another doctor who criticized the medical care you received. However, if another doctor has told you something was done wrong, then I'd like to know about it. It gives me an insight in a physician's thinking about the treatment you received. It suggests there may be a valid case here.

These four questions are just the basics. You'll notice, none of these questions call for details of what happened. At least not yet. This is just a brief screening call.

If your matter is timely and if you have significant injuries then we'd invite you in for a full consultation. At that time, we'd spend a considerable amount of time learning all the details of what happened to you.

The easiest way to get your questions answered quickly is to pick up the phone and call. You know I answer questions like yours every single day and would love to chat with you. You can reach me at 516-487-8207.

Now...if you've read this far and are looking for more information about how cases like yours work here in New York, you've come to the right place! On my website I have thousands of useful articles to help you understand how these types of civil medical malpractice cases work.

I also have hundreds of educational videos that explain how different types of malpractice cases work along with real-life cases I've handled during my legal career. In addition, I wrote four very useful books just for you, to help you understand every step of the legal process in these medical malpractice and accident cases.

The books are free.
The videos are free.
The articles are free.
The call you make to me is free.

You might ask yourself why I'd create all this useful material and give it away for free.

Excellent question. My goal is to teach you. To help you understand. My goal is to help you. The more information you have about how your type of case works, the better informed you'll be. If you have a valid case, I find that the more informed you are, the happier you'll be with the legal process even though it can be frustrating and take a long time to resolve your matter.

At this point, I invite you to watch the video below to get you on your journey learning how your type of case works...
