Medical Malpractice

When we place our physical well-being into the hands of doctors, nurses and health care specialists, we trust them to take care of us. When a health care provider makes a mistake because of negligence, the results are often tragic. The administration of the wrong medical treatment, or failure to properly diagnose an illness or injury can result in disfigurement, vulnerability to future illness, or the need for life support.

At Zwiebel and Fairbanks, LLP, we represent the victims of medical mistakes in the Hudson Valley and Capital Region of New York. We handle cases involving:

  • Birth injuries (to mothers or their children)
  • Emergency room errors
  • Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose
  • Medication errors
  • Nurse malpractice
  • Preventable infections
  • Surgical mistakes

Real Results

For more than 30 years, our firm has been extremely successful representing patients in medical malpractice cases. For example, as a result of our representation:

  • A medical malpractice victim recovered $950,000 after a nurse's mistake caused him to lose a leg (Soderquist v. Albany Medical Center).
  • $1.25 million was obtained from an Orange County jury on behalf of the estate of our client who suffered for 90 minutes before dying because a hospital failed to treat his emphysema, even though he showed signs of respiratory distress after having been involved in an accident.

  • We obtained a $500,000 settlement for a woman whose breast cancer was not diagnosed for three years, requiring a double mastectomy.

While we cannot guarantee a particular result for your case, we do guarantee that we will leave no stone unturned in its investigation, negotiation and litigation. For an honest assessment of your case, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation with an attorney.
