People seek the help of a medical professional with the expectation they’ll receive adequate care. Unfortunately, sometimes this goes wrong. Suppose a healthcare provider neglects to follow general practice guidelines for medical care when treating a patient or performing a medical procedure. In that case, the outcome can be devastating because people get hurt.

It’s especially heartbreaking to learn a personal injury or wrongful death associated with medical negligence could have been prevented had the healthcare professional acted or responded appropriately to their patient’s needs. All healthcare providers are supposed to follow a “standard of care,” which means they are supposed to adhere to generally accepted procedures based on the patient’s condition and individual circumstances (e.g., age and ailment).

If you or a loved one have suffered injuries due to the actions or decisions of a doctor, nurse, hospital, nursing home, or another healthcare treatment provider, the Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm may be able to help you. Our medical malpractice lawyers have more than 40 years of experience helping people in Brooklyn and New York. If you’d like to receive legal advice, our caring and compassionate legal team is just a phone call away. Contact us today at 212-869-3500, a free consultation.

Common Types of Brooklyn Medical Malpractice Cases

Patients go to doctors, hospitals, urgent cares, nursing homes, or other healthcare facilities with the expectation they’ll be treated for their injury or illness. In the majority of cases, people receive the level of care they expect and are properly treated. Tragically, others don’t. Sometimes patients end up in a worse condition than they were before they sought treatment.

Medical negligence can occur at various points of treatment between diagnosis and aftercare. It can also occur during the course of routine treatment. Below are some of the most frequent acts or mistakes that have caused injury and death in Brooklyn healthcare facilities.

  • Surgical Errors
  • Birth Injury & Negligence
  • Brooklyn Hospital And Nursing Home Negligence
  • Brain Injuries
  • Cancer Misdiagnosis
  • Nursing Malpractice
  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Hospital Negligence
  • Stroke Misdiagnosis
  • Failure To Diagnose

Unfortunately, incidents of medical malpractice are not uncommon. According to a Johns Hopkins report, about 250,000 people in the United States die every year from an incident involving medical malpractice. Next to heart disease and cancer, it is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Injured patients in New York are entitled to file a lawsuit if a healthcare professional didn’t align treatment with an acceptable standard of care and the result was injury or wrongful death. In some cases, medical negligence could also mean a failure to act.  

Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

If you’ve been injured after being treated by a medical professional, you may have the grounds for a medical malpractice case. A personal injury lawyer can evaluate your case and determine if you meet the New York State’s specific criteria by law.

  • Verify you or your loved one had a relationship with the provider.
  • Show the provider’s standard of care wasn’t consistent with generally accepted practices.
  • Demonstrate causation, meaning the injury is directly linked to the provider’s actions.
  • Establish an injury was the result of the provider’s medical negligence.

Negligence or a violation of the standard of care isn’t enough to warrant malpractice under New York State law. Usually, a serious injury must have occurred due to medical errors, misdiagnosis, or other negligent acts.

How Does Compensation Work in Brooklyn Malpractice Cases?

Patients in Brooklyn who file lawsuits related to medical negligence are entitled to seek compensation for the harm caused to them. This compensation, called damages in legal terms, may include money for medical bills, ongoing medical treatment, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity. Depending on the situation, an NYC court or judge may award additional compensation for non-economic damages for any pain and suffering you or your loved one may have experienced or continue to endure. Not as common, but in egregious injury claim cases where a healthcare provider acted recklessly or fraudulently, a court of law may also award punitive damages.

Our Clients’ Reviews


I cannot rate the firm any higher! we are extremely happy with the service we received from Brad, Chris and the team. We are northern Irish citizens and as such had no experience of the US justice system, Chris and Brad helped us navigate this and made sure we understood every step of the process and we were kept informed of what would happen with the case.

We also felt that Brad and Chris had a genuine interest in our story, what the implications for us as a family were and they were genuinely invested in how they could help our situation.

We were reassured by the manor in which Chris and Brad dealt with us and trusted that the advice we were given was always well balanced and in our best interests. We were extremely happy with the outcome the firm achieved for us and feel that we only got this outcome due to the hard work of Chris and Brad. I would not hesitate to recommend the firm to anyone who is considering a case and wants to feel as though they are really valued as a client.

Many thanks to the firm for all of their hard work on our behalf it truly is appreciated.
