Have You Been Injured By Medical Negligence?
When you or a family member puts your well being in the hands of a doctor, you trust the doctor to help you, and not to create further injury and harm. Healthcare workers heal injuries and save lives every day, and most of them provide competent care. Unfortunately, some doctors, nurses and other professionals deviate from accepted standards of care when they are careless and injure someone as a result. To find out if you have a case, please call Shafran & Rock, PLLC, our experienced medical malpractice lawyer in Kingston at (845) 383-1170.
Holding Medical Professionals Accountable for Negligence
Most doctors, nurses and other professionals in the healthcare field are hardworking, ethical individuals dedicated to the health and wellness of their patients. It’s entirely possible for a competent, responsible healthcare worker to make a mistake. Mistakes and less than desirable outcomes are always a possibility in healthcare. The mistake becomes medical malpractice when it was caused by the negligence and carelessness of the medical professional. In such cases, the person’s negligence leads to your injury.
Our Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Kingston will be your Advocate
Charles N. Rock comes from a family of doctors and began his career working for a large medical malpractice defense firm. Soon after beginning this defense work, he saw that not all patients receive the same level of care he was accustomed to seeing responsible doctors provide. As a result, he became an advocate for patients injured by the negligence of healthcare professionals providing substandard care.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of malpractice, you need a lawyer who:
- Will fight aggressively to pursue compensation on your behalf
- Has the experience necessary to represent you in court if the case goes to trial
- Isn’t intimidated by large, powerful insurance companies
A number of medical malpractice cases go to trial because they can’t be settled. Sometimes the doctor’s consent is needed to settle a case, which can be difficult to get. Shafran & Rock, PLLC has handled numerous malpractice cases over the years, and he is experienced in many different avenues of resolving these cases, including settling out of court and representing the plaintiff at trial.
Due to insurance companies’ lobbying efforts, medical malpractice cases have a shorter statute of limitations than other types of cases under New York law. For this reason, you should contact our lawyers as soon as you suspect malpractice has led to an injury.
