If you listen to information provided by some insurance companies, medical groups, and media organizations, you might believe that you are the bad guy for filing a New York medical malpractice lawsuit. These groups would have you believe that it is your fault that medical malpractice insurance is so high and that tort reform is necessary.

Don't believe them.

If you have been injured by medical malpractice then you have the right to contact a New York medical malpractice attorney and file a lawsuit to recover damages for the harm that someone else's negligence has caused you. You are not the bad guy. You are not the one who caused your injury, and doctors, nurses, hospitals and medical professionals should be held accountable for their negligent mistakes. You should not have to bear the financial cost of their mistakes in addition to the physical costs that you are already suffering.

Further, several studies have found that medical malpractice costs are not the reason for high medical malpractice insurance premiums. For example, in 2009 a Georgetown University Panel found that medical malpractice only accounted for 2-3% of health care costs. In other words, even if medical malpractice cases were never filed, health care costs would remain at about 97-98% of their current levels.

If you have been hurt by medical malpractice in New York then you have the legal right to file a lawsuit. You have the right to collect damages. Please call a New York medical malpractice lawyer at 1-800-PAGAN-911 for more information.
