NYC Medical Malpractice Attorney Handles Psychiatric Malpractice Cases
No psychiatrist or physician specializing in mental health in New York City wants to be at the receiving end of a malpractice lawsuit or a board complaint. However, a lot of these healthcare providers face such complaints for the simple reason that malpractice occurs and has devastating consequences to patients. Fortunately, with the help of a medical malpractice attorney in NYC, patients or their families that are victims of psychiatric malpractice can find justice. Psychiatric malpractice is the failure of a doctor to exercise a degree of skill expected of him in the treatment of mental illness, which has led to personal injury or even death of the patient. In the case of a psychiatric patient, wrongful death usually involves suicide. Psychiatric or psychological negligence is indictable by law and anyone who suffered or representing a sufferer of such act can file a lawsuit against the doctor in question.
