We Have The Resources And Experience To Handle Your Medical Malpractice Claim

If your doctor did not order a medical test, incorrectly diagnosed your illness, delayed treatment or performed faulty surgery, you may have a right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against your doctor, medical staff and health care facility for the injuries you suffered. You may seek compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages and more.

Medical malpractice cases are almost always highly contested. Doctors ordinarily do not admit wrongdoing and can almost always find a colleague to defend their professional judgment. Law firms accepting medical malpractice cases must invest significant time and resources to prove that unreasonable conduct by a medical professional caused harm to a patient.

At Chopra & Nocerino, LLP, our firm has the resources and experience to handle this challenging area of law. We receive referrals from other lawyers and take cases throughout New York.
