What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is not always immediately evident; in fact, failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, and other types of medical negligence often are not noticeable until some time after the patient receives improper care. Speaking with our medical malpractice attorneys during a free consultation can help determine whether you or someone you love should file a medical malpractice claim. In order to prove liability in a medical malpractice case, our White Plains attorneys must show the following:

Patient Duty

A hospital, doctor, or medical care provider accepted the patient and agreed to provide treatment.

Breach of Care

This healthcare practitioner or facility must have broken that agreement by failing to provide proper care according to accepted industry standards.


Our medical malpractice lawyers must show that the failure to provide the standard of care caused the patient to be injured or harmed.


Our lawyers will submit evidence to show that there are damages (economic or non-economic) sustained by the patient.
