Medical Malpractice

Our New York Malpractice Attorneys Fight For Victims of Medical Negligence

When you go to the doctor for a wellness check, injury, or illness, you expect to receive focused and competent attention. When you go to the hospital for an emergency, surgical procedure, or testing, you expect to receive reasonable treatment from doctors, nurses, and technicians.

Medical and healthcare providers are people we trust. When we need help, we turn to them, hoping their training and experience will result in good advice, correct diagnoses, and treatments that will make us feel better.

Medical Malpractice Cases on the Rise in NY

Sadly, those we trust the most might not always act according to the proper standards set by the medical community. When a healthcare provider fails to provide treatments and services that meet these standards, and injuries or death results, it is called medical malpractice.

If you or a loved one is a victim of medical malpractice or have a question about your legal rights, call our lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP. Our personal injury lawyers have years of experience handling medical malpractice cases in New York. We know how to hold doctors and hospitals accountable when they make mistakes that cause serious injuries.

At Alonso Krangle, LLP, you will find malpractice lawyers that take the time to listen attentively to your story and patiently explain your legal rights. We can determine if you have a New York medical malpractice claim and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

What is Medical Malpractice in New York?

The action or inaction by a healthcare provider must rise to the level of negligence to be considered malpractice. In other words, just because a doctor, nurse, or hospital makes a mistake does not automatically mean you have a malpractice claim.

Malpractice must involve a healthcare provider’s failure to provide a level of treatment that meets the accepted standard of care. The standard of care is usually one set by the professional community.

The analysis of negligence might involve asking questions such as: “Did the doctor act the way another competent doctor would have under similar circumstances?” or “Was it unreasonable for the doctor to make this decision?” or “Would other doctors have done something differently?”

How Do Healthcare Providers Commit Malpractice in New York?

Medical malpractice can occur in a multitude of ways and can result in serious injuries and death. Generally, our New York medical malpractice lawyers handle malpractice claims that fall into one of the following categories:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer – ignoring symptoms, not performing tests that a reasonable doctor would conduct
  • Surgical errors – leaving items in someone’s body after surgery, operating on the wrong body part, failing to follow sterilization protocols
  • Failure to diagnose heart disease
  • Improper treatment of a disease or illness – not following reasonable standards and recommendations for treatments
  • Medication errors – giving a patient medication to which she has a documented allergy, prescribing the wrong dose of something, dangerous drug interactions
  • Misdiagnosis – failing to perform a reasonable test based on symptoms
  • Failure to diagnose pulmonary embolism
  • Birth injuries such as Erb’s or cerebral palsy – failing to monitor the baby’s heartbeat or failing to perform a timely C-section
  • Failure to diagnose meningitis
  • Anesthesia errors – administering the wrong amount or failing to monitor a patient who is under anesthesia
  • Failure to diagnose bowel disease – not pursuing reasonable testing options based on symptoms
  • Failure to diagnose DVT
  • Failure to warn patients of risks of treatment, surgery, medication

Proving Causation Requires Help From Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers

One tricky aspect of medical malpractice cases in New York is proving that the healthcare provider’s negligence caused injuries or death.

Because many victims of malpractice are already sick, it can be challenging to show that “but-for” the negligence, the patient would have a different result. There must be evidence that the doctor or hospital actually caused harm.

For example, suppose patient dies from pancreatic cancer. Even if there is evidence that the doctor missed this diagnosis and was negligent, it can be challenging to prove that the negligence caused the patient’s death and that the cancer would have been fatal regardless of the diagnosis.

This is why it is so important to speak to our experienced medical malpractice lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP. We have the resources and skills to uncover and prove medical malpractice. Many malpractice claims require expert testimony, reviews of medical records, and scientific reports, along with knowledge of special legal procedures that might need to be followed.

At Alonso Krangle, LLP, our negligence lawyers will fight for your rights to obtain the damages you deserve when medical malpractice causes injury or death to someone you love.

Thank You From The Bottom Of My Heart For All Your Help


I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help. Tonight is the first night since January that I can finally breath a sigh of relief. Your determination and dedication to my case was by far beyond what I could ever imagined.

We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.
You’ll be in good hands!

I was involved in an accident and needed a good Personal Injury Attorney. A friend referred me to David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. After my initial phone conversation with David, I was confident that I found the right Attorney. David was not only extremely thorough, he kept me updated on every stage of my case. Most importantly, he was always available for questions and followed-up promptly. In most cases, the same day. Since there was a 3-hour time zone difference, I was very appreciative from a client stand point.

With his expertise and guidance, I had a successful outcome. I felt very fortunate that David and his wonderful staff represented me.

If you ever find yourself in need of expert legal advice and guidance. I highly recommend you contact David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. You’ll be in good hands!

David came recommended to me from a member of my family and now I know why . He achieved a very good result for my case. He kept us informed every step of the way and made sure all our questions were answered.
Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.

Dave Krangle Worked Restlessly On This Case Until We Won
I consider David Krangle as my attorney for many years now. Going back about 13 years ago my father was involved in a hit and run accident. David had gone the extra mile to win our case….. Mr. David Krangle worked restlessly on this case until we won the case. Since then, if anybody asks for a good attorney I recommend David Krangle with confidence. He has helped a number of my friends and relatives and they all appreciated his professionalism, prompt responses to any inquiry during case development, careful study of all details pertaining to their case. He treats his clients as family. Thank you, Mr. Krangle, wishing you a continued success, good health and prosperity.
