Manhattan, NY , United States, 07/12/2021 / Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC – NYC Medical Malpractice Lawyer /
When you are ill and go to the hospital for treatment, you expect to be cared for. When you are admitted to the hospital, you have the expectation of appropriate and considered care by the doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who treat you. Should you receive less, and your condition worsens, the hospital may be liable for any losses you experience as a result of inferior care. If a treating physician or other medical professional makes a mistake which causes harm to you, the medical professional and the hospital may be liable for your injury, your lost wages, your pain and suffering and maybe other forms of compensation under theories of medical malpractice as well.
Medical malpractice attorneys at Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC, understand the impact of such negligence on families. The firm has represented victims and families whose lives have been turned upside down because of medical negligence. One case, which resulted in one of the top verdicts, involved a teenage boy who suffered permanent, debilitating injuries.
Attorney Jonathan C. Reiter won a $22.9 million verdict for a family whose 16-year-old son was allegedly not provided the accepted standard of care for his illness while he was a patient at a famous NYC Medical Center in New York. The lawsuit alleged a mistake was made by a treating pediatrician during the child’s treatment. The 16-year-old was debilitated as a result of the mistake, and ultimately the hospital where the child was a patient was ordered to pay the child and his family millions of dollars for his suffering, his medical expenses and his lost future.
