Personal Injury Law

Quite often the reaction is negative when someone mentions “Personal Injury” and “Attorney” in the same breath. But personal injury is a serious matter and it is important that you identify an attorney who will handle your case with care. With hundreds of thousands of accidents happening daily, it is important you know what your rights are when it comes to making a personal injury claim. Just because you have suffered due to someone’s negligence doesn’t guarantee you will be able to collect your claim. While the decision to hire an attorney is a personal choice, they can make sure that you come out on top either at the settlement table or in court.

Unlike many in this practice area, the Personal Injury lawyers at Tully Rinckey won’t begin and end with Insurance Company negotiations. If it’s not fair, your Personal Injury attorney will take the steps necessary to get you relief in your case. At Tully Rinckey each case is unique and it is treated as such. You’re more than a number and our attorneys will make sure to pursue a full and fair compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered due to the negligence of others.

Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Upstate New York

Every day, patients throughout New York State place their lives in the hands of physicians, surgeons, dentists, podiatrists, nurses, and other medical professionals.

Medical Malpractice Claim Requirements

There are two factors that must exist to show medical malpractice:

Types of Malpractice Cases

Many types of medical negligence or medical malfeasance may be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Depending on the degree of your pain and suffering, injured parties or their distributees (in the event of a wrongful death claim) can be awarded tens of thousands—or even millions—of dollars in damages. Below are a few of the types of cases Tully Rinckey’s New York State medical malpractice attorneys typically handle:

  • Failure to Diagnose/Misdiagnosis
  • Surgical Error/Surgical Injury

Failure to Diagnose/Misdiagnosis

Research shows that one (1) in twenty (20) American adults at outpatient clinics are misdiagnosed annually. With many diseases, disorders and ailments, the earlier they are diagnosed, the better the patient’s prognosis may become. When a physician or other medical professional fails to diagnose or misdiagnoses a condition, such as breast cancer or melanoma, patients may miss an important window to be properly treated. Consequently, the failure to diagnose or a misdiagnosis could aggravate the patient’s condition and cause him or her more pain or suffering—or even death.

Injured parties or their family who are the victims of a physician, dentist, podiatrist or other medical professional’s failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis can file a medical malpractice lawsuit to obtain damages for their pain and suffering. It is crucial for victims of medical malpractice in New York State to immediately consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Injured parties generally have two years and six months after the failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis to file a medical malpractice claim.

Surgical Error/Surgical Injury

There is little room for error during any medical surgery and precision is a must. Yet, things that should never happen during surgery actually happen all the time and patients often suffer greatly because of these surgical mistakes. In fact, John Hopkins patient safety researchers estimate 4,000 of these so-called “never events” occur annually in the United States. Events include sponges, towels or other foreign objects being left inside the patient’s body (39 times weekly), performance of the wrong procedure (20 times weekly), and operations on the wrong side of the body (20 times weekly).

People suffering from a surgical injury caused by surgical errors or other negligence can be compensated for the pain and suffering caused by medical malpractice. Tully Rinckey’s New York State medical malpractice attorneys are experienced in representing surgical injury victims and other victims of medical malfeasance.

It is crucial for surgical injury victims to immediately contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney so they can preserve their claim before the statute of limitation expires. Generally, medical malfeasance victims have two years and six months to file a claim. In the event a foreign object is left in the patient’s body, the filing deadline is one year from when the foreign object was discovered or from when facts indicating a foreign object was left in the body were discovered.

How We Can Help

In representing surgical injury victims, our New York State medical malpractice attorneys will focus on:

  • Preserving your medical malpractice claim;
  • Collecting and reviewing medical documentation;
  • Procuring medical expert testimony to support the medical malpractice claim;
  • Proving the physician or medical professional deviated from the standard of care; and
  • Proving the physician’s or medical professional’s surgical errors caused specific injuries.

Surgical injury victims can be awarded tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. Don’t delay in taking steps to preserve your medical malpractice claim.
