The results of medical professional negligence can be catastrophic and life-altering, resulting in injury, illness or even death. If you or a family member has been affected by medical malpractice, it is important to seek justice with help from an experienced lawyer.

No matter how complex the circumstances, you can trust your case to me, attorney John M. O'Dowd Jr. From my office in Staten Island, I handle medical negligence cases for clients throughout the New York metropolitan area. With more than 29 years of personal injury experience, I am able to take on cases across various medical specialties. This includes the following types of cases:

  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or other serious illnesses
  • Misdiagnosis of illness or injury
  • Prescription errors, including wrong medication and wrong dosage

  • Podiatry surgery errors, such as when a podiatrist performs surgery despite not having correct qualifications

Ensure That You Have A Solid Negligence Claim

It is not enough to be unsatisfied with the results or have a negative consequence to the treatment or procedure. In every medical malpractice case, the claimant needs to show that there was a deviation from the accepted standards of care. Typically, this is achieved through medical expert testimony.

Finding a competent expert in the appropriate field and gathering information for these claims is a long and arduous process. It requires an attorney with a high level of proficiency, dedication and attention to detail. I possess these skills and can guide your claim through the entire legal process. My goal is to help you obtain justice as well as the compensation you deserve to cover medical expenses, lost income and other damages.
