Brooklyn Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical malpractice and hospital errors claim the lives of 98,000 patients every year. Even more alarming, the Harvard School of Medicine reports that almost 18 percent of hospital patients are injured during their stay. These injuries and deaths are exceptionally heartrending because they are caused by health care professionals who promised to help, save and protect. Medical negligence extends to physicians, nurses, hospitals and other health care personnel who fail to perform their duties with the highest level of competence and care.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries or wrongful death resulting from medical mistakes, speak with a Brooklyn medical malpractice lawyer to learn your rights. The Sanders Firm has been serving Brooklyn and the greater New York area for more than four decades, helping injured victims recover significant damages in cases where medical malpractice was to blame.

In a recent medical malpractice settlement, New York resident Tabitha Mullings was awarded $9.4 million by The Brooklyn Hospital Center and another $8.5 million from the city, totaling $17.9 million. The claim was settled out of court with the victim who had her hands and feet amputated as a result of gangrene that spread through her body due to hospital negligence.

Multi-million dollar settlements are not rare, but since liability issues are often complex, the experience of a veteran Brooklyn medical malpractice attorney is essential to your case.
