Medical Malpractice

Bronx Medical Malpractice Attorney

There are no guarantees in medicine, but serious mistakes that should never happen often do happen because of negligence. One moment of thoughtlessness on the part of a doctor or surgeon can have tragic consequences for a patient. But this is where a medical malpractice lawyer can help.

If a physician, nurse, or other healthcare professional fails to act in full accordance with standard, accepted procedures, and harm to a patient is the result, the injured victim or surviving family may file a medical malpractice claim. This can include a range of different circumstances, from a traumatic birth, to medical errors during the diagnostic process, inappropriate medical treatment or negligence during surgery.

The Bronx medical malpractice attorneys at the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin have more than six decades of combined experience advocating for the injured victims of medical malpractice, and we earned

Law Lavin 5.0/5.0 stars – based on 26 reviews.
New York City and the surrounding region is home to many hospitals and medical clinics, but even the best, most reputable medical facilities can be the site of medical errors and medical malpractice incidents.

If you or a loved one has been harmed in a medical malpractice incident, an experienced lawyer can help you win compensation for injuries caused by:

  • Healthcare provider negligence;
  • Lack of adherence to safety regulations/procedures;
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose;
  • Birth-related injuries;
  • Emergency Room or operating room mistakes; and
  • Mistakes and errors during surgery.


Legally, a mistake or a poor medical result does not always prove that negligence or malpractice occurred. A good Bronx medical malpractice attorney will have to prove that a healthcare professional failed to perform competently and with due care. Sometimes it can be challenging to prove that a healthcare provider was responsible for harming a previously-injured or sick patient, but a top Bronx medical malpractice law firm can enlist the help of independent medical experts.

Our law firm works with some of the world’s leading physicians, surgical experts and other professionals as we investigate and gather evidence that you suffered unnecessary physical pain, mental anguish, medical expenses, or that you lost function or earning capacity as a result of the malpractice incident.

I was badly injured in an auto accident that required surgery and lost time from work. The other driver was completely at fault, but he only had $25,000 in insurance coverage. I chose Mr. Lavin as my attorney, and I am so happy that I did. Mr. Lavin recognized that there was another insurance policy that we could go after. We settled with the first insurance company for the maximum of $25,000, and pursued the second which resulted in a $825,000 settlement. Mr. Lavin’s office is smart, aggressive, and very professional in pursuit of their clients’ claims. They stand up to the insurance companies and don’t take “No” for an answer. I highly recommend The Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin. – Elvin Mateo
