When you needed assistance, you went to a doctor. They erred, and as a result you have to bear the consequences. Your injuries should be compensated for by the physician, facility, or healthcare professional that contributed to your injuries.
Although you might be entitled to compensation, this does not guarantee that getting your hands on the money will be simple. Regrettably, New York regulations frequently serve to defend medical professionals and insurance providers rather than hurt clients like you. You are immediately at a disadvantage as a result of this.
The playing field will be levelled if you retain legal counsel to manage your medical negligence lawsuit. You’ll have more time to devote to improving, and it will also place you in the best possible position to receive the money.
