Long Island Medical Malpractice Lawyers

If You Were Injured by Medical Malpractice in New York, Our Lawyers Can Help

Medical malpractice in New York can happen in a variety of ways, and when it does, it can leave victims and families feeling shocked, anxious, and fearful. No one seeks help from a doctor expecting their illness or injury to become worse after the consultation or treatment. But this occurs with alarming frequency.

Medical professionals make mistakes. Whether in New York City, Long Island, the 5 boroughs or elsewhere, serious mistakes happen that impact people’s lives.

Many doctors, nurses and medical technicians are individuals who care deeply about assisting others and providing the best possible care. However, mistakes are often the result of negligence or recklessness. In cases where health care providers fail to meet the proper standard of care required by law, malpractice occurs.

Victims of Medical Malpractice May Recover Damages for their Injuries

The victim who suffers harm may have a medical malpractice claim and be able to collect monetary damages for their physical, emotional, and financial injuries caused by the negligence.

If you think a doctor, nurse, hospital, or technician acted negligently and caused you to suffer harm, our medical malpractice lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP may be able to help you. Our lawyers have the experience and skill needed to navigate all types of malpractice claims successfully. We can help determine the course of action that will get you the results you want. Whether it is negotiating a settlement or bringing your case in front of a jury, our malpractice lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP will work tirelessly toward getting you the compensation you deserve.

What Are Some Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle?

At Alonso Krangle, LLP, our lawyers are qualified to handle a wide variety of medical malpractice claims. Medical errors can occur at any step during the process of seeking help for an ailment or injury. Each case has a unique set of facts and circumstances, and medical conditions do not always present the same or require the same treatments. These are just some of the reasons that malpractice cases can be complicated.

There are, however, some types of medical malpractice that are more common than others. They generally fall into the following categories:

  • Birth Injuries
  • Failure to Diagnose or Misdiagnosis of a condition
  • Surgical errors
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Prescribing conflicting medications
  • Prescribing the wrong dose of medication

Our attorneys have experience handling negligence cases that fall into all of these categories and are ready to help.

Are you asking yourself, “Do I have a medical malpractice claim?” We can help answer that question.

Medical Malpractice Can Cause Birth Injuries

In New York and nationwide, malpractice lawyers like the ones at Alonso Krangle, LLP, frequently work on cases that arise from injuries during childbirth.

Birth injuries often cause permanent brain damage and a lifetime of developmental and physical disabilities. Cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, hypoxia, and traumatic brain injury, are just some of the birth injuries that give rise to malpractice claims.

When these injuries occur, it can be because a doctor and/or nurse did not exercise the proper standard of care. This means someone was negligent. If your child suffered a birth injury, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Were you in labor for an unusually long time?
  • Did the doctor fail to notice signs that the baby was in distress?
  • Did the doctor use a vacuum or forceps to remove the baby?
  • Did the doctor fail to perform a timely C-Section?
  • Were there signs of trouble that someone missed?

Consider reviewing these questions and their answers with the lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP to find out if you have a medical malpractice claim.

Surgical Errors Can Have Catastrophic Impacts on Patients

All surgery has risks. Every time something goes wrong, it does not mean that you have a meritorious malpractice claim. For example, there is always the risk of infection or the development of blood clots. If you get an infection, it does not guarantee that you will win a malpractice case. There are other factors that matter.

The injury that occurs during or after surgery must be the result of negligent behavior. The surgeon or other practitioners must have failed to adhere to the proper standard of care.
Consider the following:

You suffer a post-surgery infection. You learn that the operating room nurse did not sterilize the surgical instruments according to proper hospital standards. You would likely have to prove that if the instruments were sterilized properly, you would not have become infected. In all negligence cases, including medical malpractice, you have to show that the negligence actually caused you to suffer harm/injuries.

Other surgical errors that often result in malpractice claims include:

  • Leaving instruments in the patient’s body
  • Leaving sponges and gauze in the patient’s body
  • Operating on the wrong patient
  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Damaging nearby organs and tissue during surgery
  • Not following proper procedures during surgery

Failing to Diagnose and Misdiagnosing are Frequent Subjects of Malpractice Claims

Leaning that your doctor missed a diagnosis can be traumatic. We go to doctors expecting them to help us get better. When a diagnosis is incorrect, delayed, or missed altogether, the result can be the inability to seek meaningful treatment. If you or someone you love was misdiagnosed and is suffering because of it, you must ask,

  • “Should the doctor have done something differently?”
  • “Would another doctor have seen it on the scan?”
  • “Should I have been referred to a specialist?”
  • “Why didn’t anyone ask about my symptoms or history?”

These cases require sensitivity and tenacity, especially when it is too late for the patient to seek relief. Our lawyers understand how painful and emotional this type of situation can be for clients and their families and are ready to assist you in getting the justice you deserve.

Other Medical Malpractice Claims Our Lawyers Handle

There is no end to the types of malpractice claims that experienced lawyers come across. Birth injuries, surgical errors, and misdiagnosis are simply a few of the more common ones. At Alonso Krangle, LLP, our lawyers also handle medical negligence cases that arise from:

  • Prescription errors
  • Injuries to the mother during labor and pregnancy
  • In utero injuries to the fetus
  • Treatment errors
  • Defective medical devices
  • Mistakes administering medication
  • Broken hospital and testing equipment

Who Is Liable For Malpractice?

It is not always the doctor who is responsible for medical malpractice. There may be other negligent parties involved in your case. Some of the parties who may be involved in a malpractice claim include:

  • Nurses
  • Medical technicians
  • Doctors
  • Medical students
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Medical device manufacturers
  • Hospital administrators
  • Hospital owners/operators

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.

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.

Absolutely Instrumental in Helping Me Expose Medicare Fraud That My Former Employer Was Engaging In
When you have to fight Goliath you better call David. Dave was absolutely instrumental in helping me expose Medicare fraud that my former employer (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world) was engaging in. Dave took the time to listen to my concerns and my evidence. He worked tirelessly to bring the best resources to table so that our case would be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted. In the end, the Goliath was defeated thanks to Dave!

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.
