Medical Malpractice

At the Law Offices of Kenneth Hiller, we understand that the pain and anguish victims of medical malpractice suffer from extends far beyond their physical injuries. We trust our medical providers—sometimes absolutely—and when they abuse that trust, we feel deeply violated.

Therefore, we seek to build trust with our clients and make it our number one mission to be honest, responsible, and caring. As ethical medical malpractice attorneys, we will never make outlandish promises that we cannot keep.

Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice focuses on serious errors caused by doctors and other medical professionals due to negligence. These errors can have long-term and, often, permanent emotional and physical consequences.

The injuries that victims suffer don’t just occur in hospitals, they can occur anywhere care is administered. Medical Malpractice lawsuits are complicated and require the use of law firms.

Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

If you believe you have a medical malpractice case, one of the most important things to consider is that time is limited. In the State of New York, you have up to two years and six months from the date of your injury to file a case.

If you suspect you are a victim of medical malpractice, then time is of the essence when it comes to consulting with a medical malpractice attorney.

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed Diagnosis
  • Failure to Treat

  • Medical Products Liability
