Syracuse Lawyers Helping Victims of Medical Malpractice
When we are ill, we turn to medical professionals for treatment. Ultimately, we have the final say over what kind of treatment we receive. Medical professionals are negligent when they fail to keep patients informed about their treatment options. When unauthorized treatment results in harm, the medical malpractice attorneys at Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC can help.
In New York, as in other states, patients have the right to information about their medical condition, treatment options, the risks of treatment, and prognosis. This information must be presented in a way that is easy to understand so they can make an informed decision about their treatment. Since treatment can carry risks, such as harmful side effects, it's important for patients to know what to expect.
