How a Long Island Medical Malpractice Lawyer will HelpYou

Reports state that medical malpractice is the cause of a third of wrongful deaths each year. These deaths are caused by the negligence of someone in the medical field, whether it be through botched surgery, inadequate care, or a misdiagnosis. When you or someone you love has been injured or a loved one has died due to the incompetence of a professional caregiver, you will need a quality Long Island medical malpractice lawyer to represent you in your court case. Before you consult with one, however, make sure you have everything you will need to prove your case.


Your Long Island medical malpractice lawyer will assist you in the investigation to solidify your case against the medical institution and/or personnel who caused you harm. However, you can speed things up by providing your representation with all the documentation and information you can beforehand. Bring witnesses if you have any and ensure that these witnesses speak to your lawyer at some point if they are not on hand for the initial consultation. Give a list of interested parties to your lawyer so that he or she can contact them at their convenience.


You can bring a lawsuit against a doctor, nurse, therapist, pharmacist, pharmacy, or hospital that is directly involved in your injury. Nurse's aides and various technicians can also be negligent in their duties and cause damage. Your Long Island medical malpractice lawyer will help you determine who is responsible and who should be named in your case. They may suggest that you bring your suit against someone you didn't feel was responsible. Trust your lawyer to suggest the best choices for you and always ask questions to clarify before making decisions. Stay on top of your case so that you always know what steps are being taken. Offer to help whenever you can but stay out of the way if you are not needed.


The Long Island medical malpractice lawyers at Siben & Siben know just what to do to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries. When you go in for a consultation, take all of your documentation and have a list of witnesses you think will help with your case. Discuss the information and details with your attorney in depth. Don't keep anything back, even if you think it might hurt your case. Let your lawyer handle the obstacles. Hiding information could be disastrous. You can trust the lawyers at Siben & Siben to handle your case professionally and effectively.
