Hospitals are where we go for emergency situations or if we need more extensive medical care. While hospitalists and staff do what they can to provide good medical care, sometimes preventable medical errors occur that cause extensive and unnecessary injuries. For some, there are delays in diagnosis of serious and life threatening conditions. For others, errors occur as a result of not providing appropriate care or failing to adequately monitor patients while hospitalized.
No matter what the cause of your injury, it is important to hold the responsible party accountable. At DeFrancisco & Falgiatano, we represent victims of hospital malpractice throughout central New York. To speak to a malpractice attorney in a free consultation, please call 315-479-9000.

"As a result of multiple medical errors I sustained very serious injuries both physically and financially. Due to my chronic pain and significant physical limitations I have been deemed to be totally disabled. I contacted Jeff DeFrancisco regarding my circumstance and from the initial phone conversation until the completion of the settlement he displayed a level of professionalism, knowledge of both medical malpractice law and medicine that can not be surpassed. In addition, he was a compassionate, caring attorney through the whole process. Mr. DeFrancisco ultimately settled my case to my satisfaction.
