Medical Malpractice


A bad outcome of medical treatment is not necessarily grounds for a malpractice lawsuit. Even with good facts, a patient is not automatically entitled to compensation. Medical malpractice cases hinge on complicated legal standards and technical issues of medicine. Your best opportunity for justice lies with an attorney who has specific experience in this field.

The Gucciardo Law Firm has successfully litigated medical malpractice cases for clients across the five boroughs of New York City, as well as Nassau County and Suffolk County. Our attorneys have secured multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts through our meticulous attention to the relevant details and our willingness to invest in cases all the way through to a jury decision.

“I will take whatever time is needed to get the case prepped for trial, to the detriment of everything else in my life. Nothing is more important than the client I am representing at the time.” ∼ Charles Gucciardo

Our recoveries in medical malpractice cover a wide range of cases, including:

  • Birth injury — cerebral palsy or nerve damage
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or life-threatening medical conditions
  • Surgical mistakes — wrong procedure, anesthesia error, collateral injury, infection
  • Medication errors — wrong drug, wrong dose, contraindications

If we determine that you have a viable case for malpractice, we will pursue compensation for the costs of medical intervention and damages for disability, lost earnings, and pain and suffering past and future.

We Will Gauge Your Possible Malpractice Claim At No Cost To You

The threshold is quite high to hold doctors accountable for malpractice. There must be serious and lasting harm and evidence that the doctor deviated from accepted medical standards, meaning that the doctor or other health care professional did something they should not have done or failed to do something they should have done, and this error caused harm to the patient. You deserve the time from an attorney to have this explained to you in detail.

New York law also requires that an allegation of malpractice be supported by an expert in the same field of medicine as the malpractice before you can file a lawsuit. Our lawyers understand the criteria and how to find and select those qualified medical specialists who will attest to a legitimate claim. We determine which medical providers to sue and how to frame the complaint against them. Our research, knowledge, and expertise from 30-plus years of experience trying malpractice cases gives us the ability to anticipate all defenses that will inevitably come from the sophisticated counsel hired by the health care providers and their insurance companies.

It costs nothing to have us evaluate your claim and we charge no attorney fees unless we take your case and obtain compensation for you.
