You believe the hospital violated its own rules, regulations and procedures. What does that mean?
Every hospital in New York has written rules, regulations and protocol that they must follow.
What happens if the hospital staff and its doctors fail to follow their own rules and regulations and you suffered injury as a result of that?
During your medical malpractice trial we ask the judge to instruct the jury that the violations are some evidence of negligence. The jury is allowed to determine what weight those violations will carry when deciding whether or not they were departures from good and accepted medical care.
Simply because there was a violation of a rule or regulation does not in and of itself mean that the violation resulted in your injury. There are multiple steps that must be answered first in order for the jury to come to that conclusion.

Here's a cardiac malpractice case where I was able to achieve a $6 million dollar settlement for my client.
Here's a foot surgery case where a Westchester, NY jury awarded my client $1.55 million dollars for her pain and suffering.
