Medical malpractice occurs when a provider, usually a doctor or a health care facility, fails to provide treatment that meets the customary standard of health care provided by the medical industry. The failure to satisfy the standard of health care, or medical negligence, must result in an injury to or wrongful death of a patient. Negligence may include an error in diagnosis, treatment, or illness management, and can implicate the doctor, hospital, health facility, or government agency that manages the hospital or health care facility. Our firm identifies the medical malpractice and holds the negligent party accountable, whether in-house or by referral.
Our firm will seek compensation for the victims of medical malpractice and their family, ensuring that the negligence of others will not leave their clients financially suffering into the future. Due to the complexity and length of most medical malpractice lawsuits, Rifkin has the resources and skills necessary to take these cases to verdict or to a settlement negotiation, or in many cases refer to our network of colleagues. Victims of medical malpractice have already suffered emotionally and physically, we will make sure that they do not have to suffer financially as well.
