Harmon, Linder & Rogowsky Reviews Medical Malpractice Criteria

Many believe that any mistake by a healthcare provider means medical malpractice has taken place, but this is not necessarily true. Doctors are human and can make mistakes like the rest of us. While some medical errors can be more costly than others, not all are grounds for a lawsuit.

It is important to note that medical malpractice is never presumed. Malpractice cannot be presumed by the fact that a patient had a bad result.

The definition of medical malpractice is: An action or omission by a healthcare provider, which falls well below the acceptable standard of care that other healthcare providers would have given under the same circumstances, resulting in injury to the patient.

Two factors must be met before a medical malpractice claim can be made:

  1. A healthcare provider provided treatment below the medical standard of care
  2. The provider’s action or inaction resulted in a verifiable, serious injury

If you’ve received medical treatment and these criteria are met, the attorneys at Harmon, Linder & Rogowsky can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Medical malpractice is one of the most common types of personal injury claims made, however, it is also among the most difficult and complex types of personal injury cases. It often requires expert witnesses to testify to the standard of care that should have been used and how the breach of that standard of care caused the patient’s injury.

The personal injury lawyers at Harmon, Linder & Rogowsky have the experience to help you decide if a medical malpractice suit is right for you, and if needed, they’ll handle the ins and outs of your medical malpractice case.

Harmon, Linder, and Rogowsky Reviews Distracted Driving Cases to Ensure Victims Receive the Compensation They Deserve


Do you text and drive or eat while you are driving? You should stop that immediately as you could potentially be violating the law. Two years ago – roughly around this time – Governor Cuomo announced a crackdown on distracted driving to prevent what many officers, law officials, and public administrators have noted as a growing problem. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3,154 people were killed and 424,000 were injured nationwide in distracted driving accidents in 2013. In addition to that, ten percent of all fatal accidents involved a driver who was classified as distracted.


Who Is a Distracted Driver?


It takes roughly five seconds to send a text. If you are going 55 mph, which is the standard limit on many NY highways, you should cover a football field in that time. Obviously, there is a lot that can go wrong here in that time and within that distance so it’s important to avoid texting and driving. However, texting and driving is just one instance of distracted driving. Here are several others:


  • Eating fast food or another snack while you’re driving.
  • Talking with others in the car while driving.
  • Picking something up off the floor while driving.
  • Tuning the radio while driving.
  • Turning and addressing a child in the backseat while driving.


It’s important to avoid all of these instances whenever possible as you’re more likely to get into an accident. If you have been involved in an accident that was the fault of a distracted driver, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries as well as any damage sustained by your vehicle. The law firm of Harmon, Linder & Rogowsky reviews distracted driver cases all of the time to help victims defeat the insurance companies and receive the compensation they deserve.
