Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyers Serving Clinton County And Upstate New York

Holding Doctors And Medical Staff Accountable For Medical Negligence

When you seek medical help from your doctor or agree to surgery, you expect the best care and advice possible. If a mistake is made by your doctor, the hospital or other medical staff, your life may be on the line. The health complications that may result from medical errors can result in permanent disabilities and even death. You need skilled legal representation to pursue full and fair compensation for your injuries.

At Poissant, Nichols, Grue, Vanier & Babbie, P.C., we have extensive experience in medical malpractice, including cases involving:

  • Surgical errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to perform necessary tests
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • Drug interactions
  • Nursing errors
  • Nursing home abuse

Our Clinton County, St. Lawrence County and Franklin County medical malpractice attorneys have an excellent reputation for handling medical malpractice lawsuits. These complex and challenging cases often revolve around the "standard of care," the standard used by other, similar health care providers at other, similar institutions. We work diligently to show how the standard of care was deviated from in your case and to show how it has impacted your entire life, including issues of disability and disfigurement.

Attention To Detail

Our lawyers will review your entire medical history, so we can determine when the error occurred and how it relates to your overall health and well-being. We begin by obtaining and examining all relevant medical records. We have connections with medical specialists around the country in various areas of expertise who review our cases to evaluate and explain the deviation from the standard of care on the part of the medical professionals involved. These experts testify at trial in support of our clients.

We know the level of difficulty involved in proving a case of medical malpractice. We explain the legal process to you and educate you on your available options so you can make the best decisions for yourself and your family. We understand the pain and frustration you are going through, and we want to help.

We negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. Frequently, mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) are used in medical malpractice cases. Two of our attorneys are trained mediators and understand the process well. We will attend mediation or other alternative dispute resolution sessions with you. If we cannot come to an agreement with the parties involved, we will take your case to trial.
