Hospital NegligenceIf you or a loved one were injured due to negligence of hospital staff, you need the help of experienced NYC medical malpractice lawyers. Call us at 212-943-1090 for a free consultation.

Hospital negligence can lead to serious injury or death and includes malpractice by doctors, nurses, nurse's aides, physician's assistants and technicians who are employed by the hospital. Some of the types of hospital negligence include inadequate staffing, inadequate supervision, or the failure to perform or properly interpret diagnostic tests.

However it occurs, there is no excuse for placing patients in danger by providing inadequate or negligent care. Licensed and regulated by Federal and State law, hospitals must adhere to certain policies and procedures in order to ensure the health and well-being of their patients. When patients are injured due to negligence, hospitals are liable for the injuries they cause.

Hospital Errors in ERs

Our firm also handles emergency room error claims. Emergency rooms must care for critical and non-critical patients in a fast-paced environment. Staff in emergency rooms are trained in triage—the assessment of the seriousness of a medical condition in order to provide prompt care when needed. A incorrect assessment of a patient's condition can lead to delayed diagnoses and delayed treatment, which can lead to death for critically ill or injured patients.

We also seek to help you get the care you need so that you and your family can begin to recover.

Throughout your case we will remain attentive and responsive to your medical and legal needs and meticulously prepare your case for trial. Our firm seeks out and retains the top medical specialists in the field to bring a comprehensive knowledge base to your case that will surpass the medical expertise on the other side. If necessary, we also retain expert accountants and financial analysts because many hospital negligence cases have their own set of associated losses including lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs. In order to accurately assess what these costs will be for the remainder of a victim’s life, we use financial professionals to derive fair resolutions for injury victims.

  • $3,000,000 wrongful death settlement for the family of patient who was overdosed with opioid pain medication by his local hospital. The death occurred after a nurse made an error and incorrectly transcribed an order for Dilaudid, an opioid pain medication, raising it to a fatal dose. The order was filled by the hospital pharmacist who never questioned it. The hospital never told the family about the deadly medication error. Our skilled medical malpractice attorneys investigated the case and uncovered the truth. We were able to hold the hospital accountable for their negligence and obtain compensation for the family of the patient despite the fact that he did not experience any pain and suffering and had a limited income to support his family.

I met Diana Carnemolla and Howard S. Hershenhorn during the darkest time of our lives, when my husband was in a coma with very little chances to survive, due to a car accident. The compassion and professionalism that they showed myself and my family during such a difficult time combined with an incredible willingness to get the best results for us have shown us that we had made the absolute best choice. They not only fought extremely hard for what proved to be a very difficult case, but they also emotionally helped us through this incredible ordeal and have been a caring advocate for our family and our case. They got us the best results we could have expected given the circumstances and didn't give up when things got more challenging. We would absolutely recommend their Law Firm to handle the toughest of cases while providing such a great deal of personal support. Diana proved to be personally invested in our case ultimately seeking the best outcome for our family. We cannot thank them enough for what they have done for us. V.P.

She performed impeccable work ethics and professionalism whole time throughout, with her constant follow ups and communication skills, for that I’m very appreciative of. August 2020, my mother was in a horrific car accident. I contacted Gair Gair Conason to handle my mother's case. Everyone at the firm who helped us with the case did such a fantastic job with being so efficient. We could not have been more satisfied with the services we received. Diana M.A. Carnemolla, Esq. was so fast, quick answer for every question that we asked and gave us honest information about the possibilities concerning the case. She resolved our case much faster that I would expect. Thank you so much! I am very happy with this law firm. Especially the outcome from it all and how easy they helped make it be for us. We had a tough case to fight regarding the incident with the other driver, thankfully it all worked out in my mothers best interest. Diana M.A. Carnemolla helped us settle our case easily, helped us get out of it with a much needed win. I’m surprised it wasn’t as bad of experience as I thought it would be. We were pretty worried in the beginning with much thanks to this team they’ve helped solve this for my mother and put much of my worries as well as my mothers to ease. Thank you again from my family to your whole team for an awesome job!! I would highly recommend this law office to anyone in need of outstanding representation." K.C.
