Thousands of New Yorkers visit a medical professional each day, seeking relief for a physical ailment. For many, the visit is successful and within a few hours or days of their visit, they feel immensely better. Others, however, actually sustain further harm because of a mistake made by the person providing them with care.
Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed because the medical professional treating them failed to follow the accepted standard of care. For example, if a patient presents with symptoms that would indicate they were suffering from a cardiac condition but the doctor treated them for a GI disease instead, allowing the cardiac condition to worsen, this could be considered medical malpractice.
Common forms of medical malpractice include:
Medical malpractice lawsuits can be filed against the medical professional and hospital involved. These legal complaints provide patients harmed through medical malpractice the opportunity to fight for compensation which can help to pay for the ongoing care that they will require.

You’ve been injured in a construction accident. You’ve taken the steps that you’ve been told would protect you financially and physically, like filing a workers’ compensation claim. But now you’ve learned that your claim has been denied or that the payments that will be made aren’t enough to cover your financial losses. Do you have any other options?
A construction accident lawsuit may be the best option.
Construction accident lawsuits are filed against a third-party whose negligence resulted in your injury. This lawsuit can help a plaintiff recover full compensation for all past and future medical expenses, lost earnings, physical pain and suffering, and emotional trauma. The total amount that can be recovered does vary from case to case.
If you are a construction worker who is struggling to pay your bills after an accident, contact Banville Law.
Anyone can be hurt at work, even in the safest of environments, which is why workers’ compensation exists. This insurance is required by law and is supposed to provide injured workers with coverage for the medical care they require because of work-related injuries. In cases where an employee is unable to return to work because of their injuries, it can also provide a fraction of lost wages. In return, workers’ compensation prevents an employee from filing a lawsuit against their employer.
The problem is that insurance companies train their adjusters to find ways to deny claims so that the company saves money. Appeals can be filed but the appeals process is even more difficult than filing an initial claim. The best way to obtain fair and fast compensation through workers’ comp is to work with an attorney.
Banville Law’s lawyers want you to be able to focus your energy on healing instead of the stress of filing a workers’ comp claim. Call our law firm now to learn more.
