Medical Malpractice

What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is essentially the failure of medical providers — including doctors, pharmacists, radiologists, laboratory technicians and nurses — to use reasonable care in treating a patient, resulting in harm.

Those who survive a medical error may be injured such that they are entitled to compensation. The medical malpractice attorneys at Reich & Binstock want to help those who have been harmed by a medical error.

What Constitutes A Medical Error?

Errors include a delay in diagnosis or a misdiagnosis, improperly administered treatment, and the administering of either the wrong dose of a drug or the inappropriate drug. There are additional practical definitions of a medical error, and the experienced attorneys at Reich & Binstock can examine your situation, or that of a loved one, to determine whether damages may be recoverable.

Medical Malpractice Happens In A Variety Of Settings

Although errors may be more easily detected in hospitals, the problems extend to every health care setting, including day surgery and outpatient clinics, retail pharmacies, nursing homes and home care. Add the financial cost to the human tragedy and medical error easily rises to the top ranks of urgent, widespread health problems.

The medical malpractice attorneys at Reich & Binstock have filed lawsuits for clients who have been victimized by medical negligence, an area of tort law in which the provider rendered care that was below the required standard. That standard of care is established by the use of highly trained and qualified medical experts.
