Saratoga Springs Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Serving Victims & Their Loved Ones throughout Upstate New York

We put a lot of trust into our medical care, especially when we are injured or ill. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers take an oath to do no harm, yet one small act of carelessness or a negligent action on their part can forever change a patient’s life. When a medical provider falls short of their duty and their mistake causes injury or death, the victim or their surviving family may have recourse to seek compensation for their recovery.

Medical malpractice cases are complex, and our experienced attorneys can help you through the legal process. Hacker Murphy is dedicated to assisting victims in seeking the full and fair compensation they deserve.

To discuss your matter, schedule your consultation by calling (518) 284-3183.

Medical Negligence Lawsuits in NY

There are numerous situations that can be considered negligent in the eyes of the law. Any deviation from the standard of care that harms a patient can be considered a negligent act in which the medical facility or healthcare provider may be held liable.

Grounds for a medical malpractice claim can include:

  • Failure to provide timely treatment
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosing a condition or illness
  • Prescribing or administering the wrong medication
  • Failure to follow routine procedures or protocols
  • Anesthesia or surgical errors, including administering improper levels of anesthetic or performing surgery on the wrong site
  • Birth injuries
  • Emergency room errors
  • Injuries from orthopedic devices

Getting to the underlying cause of an injury or death caused by malpractice or negligence requires the help of a lawyer who is not only well versed in the law, but who is committed to standing up against negligent parties and their insurance companies. Our Saratoga Springs medical malpractice attorneys take care to review a victim’s medical records to find the cause of the injuries. We will build a strong case in order to seek the full and fair compensation our clients need to recover.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
