Medical Malpractice

The Law Office of Mark A. Siesel, with offices in White Plains, the Bronx, and a satellite office in Peekskill, New York has the background, dedication and experience to prosecute claims of medical malpractice for clients who have suffered injuries due to the negligence and carelessness of doctors, nurses, dentists, psychiatrists, podiatrists, chiropractors, hospitals, and other health care providers. Particularly when pursuing cases of medical malpractice, in which the defense lawyers retained by the doctor’s insurance companies are generally more experienced and medically knowledgeable, it is vital that you retain a firm which can match the experience and background of those seeking to deny just compensation for your injuries. Further, unlike general negligence cases such as car accidents or construction accidents, the time with which you have to commence a claim for medical malpractice is shorter. Thus, with time being of the essence, it is essential that you retain attorneys with the necessary experience to prosecute your case effectively and successfully.

In medical malpractice cases involving public hospitals, there is an additional requirement of filing a prompt notice of claim to ensure that a lawsuit can be pursued if a medical expert determines that there was a departure from good and accepted medical procedure. With all of these intricacies, you must retain attorneys with the requisite knowledge and experience. The Law Office of Mark A. Siesel, armed with that experience and background, will vigorously and aggressively litigate your case with the responsible parties and insurance companies to maximize compensation for your pain and suffering, lost earnings, loss of enjoyment of life and medical expenses, both past and future.

Our firm handles a variety of medical malpractice claims, including those arising from:

  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Missed diagnoses
  • Lack of Informed Consent
  • Surgical Injuries
  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Failure to Refer to Proper Specialists
  • Orthopedic Surgical Injuries
  • Neurological Injuries
  • Obstetric / Labor and Delivery Surgical Injuries
  • Patient Neglect
  • Nursing Home Abuse
  • Spinal Cord Stimulator Injuries
  • Improperly Prescribed, Dispensed or Filled Medications
  • Unreasonable Conduct of a Health Care Provider

The Law Office of Mark A. Siesel understands that injuries suffered as a result of medical malpractice can be devastating, life altering and severe. We recognize that in addition to recovering the maximum compensation for physical, emotional and psychological pain and suffering, our clients also want to ensure that their past and future medical expenses are accounted for, any lost wages are reimbursed to prevent any financial suffering, that any loss of employment opportunities or potential are recognized, and that the insurance companies accept responsibility for all potential damages if the case is resolved prior to trial.

Our office will work tirelessly and aggressively to ensure that you receive the maximum possible compensation as expeditiously as possible. Knowing that the number one complaint of clients with other firms is that they are not kept up to date on the status of their cases, we pledge to return all phone calls or emails within 24 hours of receipt, by someone in our office with specific knowledge of your case.
