Long Island Medical Malpratice Lawyers

Each year, more people die from medical errors than from car accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS, according to a study by the National Academy of Medicine. Even more disturbing, malpractice has become one of the top ten leading causes of death in the country. Health care professionals who work in hospitals and clinics are required to meet an industry standard of care. When a failure to meet these standards results in serious injury, a patient may be eligible to sue for medical negligence.

The Sanders Firm understands the burdens – both financial and emotional – that medical mistakes place on their victims and those whom they love. If you have been injured due to the negligence or misconduct of a medical professional, you have the right to demand damages from the responsible parties. Our skilled medical malpractice lawyers in Long Island have the expertise and resources to ensure victims are fairly compensated for their injuries.
