WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS YOU TRUSTED MAKE NEGLIGENT DECISIONS THAT INJURE YOU OR SOMEONE YOU LOVE?
When you put your health—and sometimes your life—in a doctor's hands, you trust that she will take care of you to the best of her ability. Unfortunately, healthcare professionals sometimes make poor decisions that can negatively affect a patient's life forever. If this has happened to you, you may have a medical malpractice case on your hands.
Hospital and nursing home negligence is far too common and can lead to things like bedsores, infections, and physical or emotional scars. If you or a loved one experienced negligence at a hospital or nursing facility, D'Orazio Peterson wants to help you.

A healthcare professional makes a bad decision, failing to maintain a certain standard of care, and you or a loved one must suffer through the pain and confusion. This is not fair and you should not have your world turned upside down because a doctor fails to do their job properly.

PODIATRIC MALPRACTICE IN ALBANY COUNTY:
FAILED FOOT SURGERY, MISDIAGNOSIS
People don't always think about podiatrists when it comes to medical malpractice, but malpractice can happen in any type of medical situation, no matter how specialized. Podiatric malpractice frequently occurs when a patient goes in for some type of surgical procedure, such as bunion surgery, correcting a nerve injury, or fixing a ruptured Achilles tendon.
These procedures are not always successful, but failed surgeries are not always the result of malpractice. Podiatric malpractice happens if the podiatrist does not maintain a certain standard of care. Standard of care equates to the understanding that another podiatrist in similar circumstances would make the same reasonable decisions regarding a patient's well-being. If what a podiatrist did to you is completely off-base from what other skilled podiatrists would do, that's when you may have a problem.
