Medical malpractice is a legal cause of actions that occurs when a medical or health care professional deviated from standards in their profession, thereby causing injury to a patient.
The most common types of medical malpractice include misdiagnosis, childbirth injuries, surgery errors and medication errors. In the state of New York, the medical malpractice statute of limitations typically allows victims 2.5 years from the time of the injury to file a medical malpractice claim.
