Attorney Representing Victims of Medical Malpractice in Albany
When a person sees a physician for medical care, most of the time the treatment they are administered improves their condition and leaves them feeling healthy. Unfortunately, on rare occasions, a visit to the doctor can go wrong. Incorrect or incomplete diagnosis, improper treatment or failure to warn a patient of potential risks can have severe consequences. This situation is known as medical malpractice, and if you or someone close to you has experienced it, Brimberry, Kaplan & Brimberry of Albany may be able to provide you with the counsel and representation necessary to get justice and due financial compensation.
Consequences of a Doctor’s Negligence
Medical malpractice can have negative effects on a person in physical, mental and financial capacities. The damage caused by a physician’s negligence can include:
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
- Additional medical bills
- Lost wages and/or lost earning capacity
Persons affected may be left with permanent injuries, exacerbated or additional illnesses and may need to pay for more medical attention as a result. Time spent incapacitated as a result of these complications could also lead to lost wages due to absence from work, or even the loss of one’s job due to inability to perform it any longer. A medical lawsuit involves many steps and can take time. In addition, there is something known as a statute of limitations, which means victims of malpractice have a limited amount of time to file a suit. An attorney may be able to speed up the process and make sure all of the proper steps are taken.
