Who Can Be Held Liable for Medical Malpractice?

Who Can Be Held Liable for Medical Malpractice?

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Our Newburgh medical malpractice attorney has years of experience investigating claims under New York law, and Mr. Rock knows how to determine who should be held liable for your damages.

While we would like to think that all of our healthcare providers are qualified and ethical professionals, sometimes the reality can be devastating. Reckless, negligent and incompetent services have become almost common-place in the healthcare industry, not only at the hands of poorly qualified doctors and surgeons, but within pharmaceutical companies and medical supply manufacturers.

There are a number of potential parties who can be held liable in a medical malpractice claim including:

  • Primary care physicians and specialists, including dentists, chiropractors and OBGYNs
  • Surgeons, including cosmetic surgeons for elective procedures
  • Nurse practitioners
  • General hospital and medical staff
  • Medical supply companies
  • Pharmaceutical companies

Generally, anyone who is involved in the medical field can be held liable for medical malpractice if they cause you harm due to negligence or recklessness.

Though the responsible party may seem obvious to you, it’s important to remember that our experienced medical malpractice attorney understands the dynamics of these cases, and sometimes you might be entitled to more compensation than you realize. The best way to determine the potential of your claim is to let Mr. Rock provide a professional assessment of your case.
