Gerry's Educational New York Medical Malpractice Website
In a medical malpractice case in NY, a doctor who is being sued is considered a medical expert. What that means is that during his deposition, which is a pretrial question and answer session under oath, I have the opportunity to ask the doctor questions as if he were an expert.
That means I can ask him opinion questions about the treatment that was rendered that calls for opinions or conclusions. In addition, I can also establish through this witness what the standards of care were for treating your particular type of medical condition.
This is important to establish a baseline of the basic standard of care that the doctor should have provided to the patient. Then I will have the doctor go through his own records to determine whether his treatment conformed to his own definition of the standard of care.

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.
To learn more about how medical malpractice cases work in the state of New York, I encourage you to explore my educational website.
