Video Transcription

You can file a medical malpractice case against a medical professional that is not an MD, if they meet the same criteria of the deviation from good and accepted practice. Again the standard would be, was there a deviation from good and accepted practice by this chiropractor, by this podiatrist, by this nurse practitioner, by this pharmacist?

Yes those cases can be brought. It’s the same standard in New York State to be evaluated by a group that practices that same specialty, whatever it is, and be told by another expert that there was a deviation from good and accepted practice. And of course, we have to have an injury as well.
