Gerry's Educational Medical Malpractice Website
You decide to bring a lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries caused by improper medical care of a doctor or hospital here in New York. You believe you have a strong valid case. You are surprised when the defense turns around and denies all of your allegations.
One of their big defenses is that the doctor was simply exercising his best judgment when deciding how to treat you and your medical condition.
Did you know that a doctor who exercises his best medical judgment may not be held responsible for your injuries as long as the choice of treatment he opted for was within acceptable medical standards?
If however the doctor had a number of choices to treat you, most of which were acceptable medical care, but the one he chose to treat you was unacceptable and departed from good and acceptable medical care, it is possible that a jury could find the doctor deviated from good medical practice by choosing a medical option that was not appropriate.
Some injured victims believe that simply because they have suffered a complication as a result of a doctor's choice of treatment automatically means that they are entitled to win their New York medical malpractice lawsuit. This is not true.
We must show that you are more likely right than wrong, that the choice of treatment the doctor chose was unacceptable and departed from good and acceptable medical care.
