Claims Our New York Medical Malpractice Law Firm Handles
Morelli Law Firm Handles all types of medical malpractice claims including:
Medication errors can happen for several reasons. Your doctor may have misdiagnosed your condition and prescribed the wrong medicine. Your order or dosage may have been miscoded, leading to an overdose. In some cases, you may have an allergic reaction to the medication. If so, we can help you seek compensation for the error.
Surgical errors occur when medical professionals make a mistake in a medical procedure. Mistakes can cause irreversible harm and cost you thousands of dollars in ongoing medical care. Doctors may commit errors such as cutting a nerve, operating on the wrong area, performing an unnecessary operation, or an improper application of amnesia.
It is not uncommon for doctors to misdiagnose a medical condition. The results can either lead to unnecessary treatment or cause you to miss out on the required treatment. Misdiagnosis can cause you unnecessary suffering and can shorten your life. We handle all types of misdiagnosis cases.
Lack of Informed Consent
A doctor or medical specialist may take matters into their own hands without allowing you to provide authorized written consent. While this may be necessary under certain conditions such as a surgical emergency, in most cases it is not handled properly. In other cases, a doctor may not have informed you of the possible consequences of treatment before administering it. If so, they are liable for your injuries.
Morelli Law Firm handles medical malpractice cases. Regardless of how you were injured, our New Rochelle medical malpractice lawyers can handle your case and help you pursue compensation for your injuries and other damages.
Determining if You Have a Medical Malpractice Case
Due to the highly technical aspects of the medical field, most patients are completely oblivious to the treatment or medication that they receive. Consequently, when something goes wrong, they may not fully understand what happened or if the doctor was at fault from the problem.
A Morelli Law Firm medical malpractice attorney can review your current medical situation to determine if you have a case. To prove a case, we must demonstrate one or more of the following:
- The physician had a duty of care to you, the patient.
- The doctor breached the duty of care or acted in an unconventional way.
- The breach or error is what caused you further harm.
- You were not properly informed of the medical treatment you received.
- There were extraordinary consequences to the treatment.
In addition, we must demonstrate that the doctor or medical facility either did inform you of the mistake or failed to inform you of the mistake. In either case, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. A New Rochelle medical malpractice lawyer can look at the evidence to let you know if you have a case and what your best course of action is, legally.

Damages in a Medical Malpractice Case
In a medical malpractice case, you may be awarded damages for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, or wrongful death. We calculate your damages based on economic and noneconomic losses such as:
Severe injuries from a medical error can lead to high medical bills. They may include further emergency surgical procedures to correct the initial error. In addition, you may be able to claim further testing, consultation, pain medication, doctor visits, rehabilitation, or medical devices.
If a doctor’s error causes you to be out of work for several weeks or months, you may be entitled to compensation for lost pay, lost benefits, or even estimated lost bonuses or tips. We can work with your employer to determine the full extent of your lost income.
Lost Future Earning Capacity
Some medical mistakes can cause permanent disability, leaving you unable to work or draw the same amount of income prior to the accident. If so, you may be able to claim disability or add your diminished future earning capacity to your claim.
In addition to medical expenses, lost wages, and disability, you may also be able to account for physical agony that you have experienced, as well as emotional trauma from the accident. We can also explore other damages such as loss of consortium or overall loss of quality of life.
Wrongful Death in Medical Malpractice Cases
Morelli Law Firm also provides legal representation for wrongful death cases. We understand that nothing can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, your family can recover all of your burial and funeral expenses, as well as other damages such as loss of household income, pre-death medical expenses, and pain and suffering of the deceased. Pain and suffering is defined as compensation for your physical and emotional distress.
We can investigate the accident, gather evidence of negligence, and pursue compensation for damages on your behalf. We can manage your case while you and your family are grieving. We take the burden off of dealing with the insurance company during this difficult time.
