Doctors in Manhattan and around the country are held to a higher standard of care than most people because of the special relationship between physicians and patients. Under the law, they must always use the level of care that another physician in the same field would use in the same situation. When they fall below this “standard of care” and cause harm to a patient, the patient has the right to file a lawsuit that alleges negligence. Parker Waichman’s attorneys are committed to helping injured patients recover for the ways they have been harmed and to holding doctors accountable for their actions. Medical negligence cases in Manhattan can be complicated, but our lawyers are tremendously thorough in investigating and litigating claims for our clients to be sure we achieve the best outcome possible.
