NYC Medical Malpractice Lawyers
When we visit the hospital or schedule a medical appointment, we place our lives in the hands of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. While we trust these medical professionals to do their jobs competently and correctly, sadly, this trust is sometimes misplaced as even doctors can make mistakes — mistakes that can have serious, or even deadly, consequences.
At Edelman & Edelman, P.C., our lawyers understand just how frightening it can be when you realize your doctor may have made an error when treating you, especially given how much trust we place in these individuals. After all, doctors and other medical professionals are supposed to help treat medical conditions, not cause them or make them worse.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to seek compensation under New York law, including damages to cover your current and future medical care, which may be substantial. We handle a broad range of medical malpractice claims, including those related to:
- Birth-related injuries and other fetal complications, including those involving hypoxia and brain damage, cerebral palsy and shoulder dystocia, which can result in Erb’s palsy or brachial plexus
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of serious medical conditions, including cancer, heart attacks and strokes
- Surgical errors and mistakes

The Attorneys You Want Handling Your Medical Malpractice Claim
There are many factors that set us apart from other personal injury and medical malpractice firms in New York City, including:
We seek the truth behind medical conditions: Not only is our founding attorney, Martin Edelman, widely known for his medical knowledge, but our entire firm is dedicated to pursuing the truth behind your medical issue. We do not take a doctor’s initial report as the final say, especially when the results are not adding up. We find the experts and medical professionals who are doing the most cutting-edge work and using the most recent technology to identify the exact injury you have and the treatment you will require. Simply put, we will keep digging until we have the answers we need to prove your case and obtain the compensation you deserve.
We pursue superior results: Our cases require special legal representation, and we deliver special results, as evidenced by our long history of successful results. No matter the circumstances, we will invest the money, time and resources needed to prove your case. You can count on us to do everything in our power to obtain the maximum recovery for you and your family.
We go the extra mile: While many firms will end the attorney-client relationship as soon as they resolve your case, that is not how we operate. Too many times, we have seen instances in which insurance companies will stall on paying court-ordered compensation, all while you continue to suffer. We will work with you until you actually receive the full compensation awarded to you, and we will handle any complications that may arise along the way.
