What is Medical Malpractice?

People injured by medical error often wonder the amount of compensation they can recover from a medical malpractice claim. Because each case is different, the extent of the injuries suffered will vary and, therefore, so do the damages and potential compensation. However, those injured by medical malpractice may receive compensation for damages including but not limited to:

  • Loss of income
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional suffering
  • Physical pain
  • Cost of medical and rehabilitative services (past and ongoing care)
  • Cost of medical equipment now needed due to the injury

Many victims of medical malpractice may not initially recognize their experience or treatment amounts to a claim. That’s where we can help. It is important to contact a Queens medical malpractice lawyer even if you are unsure you have a case as soon as possible. The statute of limitations on filing a malpractice claim in New York is only two and a half years.

Client Reviews

Title: This Firm was the Best Decision I Could Have Possibly Made

I came to Robert Miklos of Silberstein, Awad & Miklos when I was unhappy with my attorneys representing me in a medical malpractice case. Switching to Robert Miklos and his firm was the best decision that I could have possibly made for me and my husband after the tragedy that we had suffered through. Robert and his firm were very professional and thorough. He always made sure that he explained everything to me and my husband and made us feel comfortable through the entire process. One thing that stood out to me about Robert is that he was not willing to accept any low settlement offers, and fought to the end so that we could receive fair and reasonable compensation. I highly recommend Robert Miklos and the firm of Silberstein, Awad & Miklos.
