Medical negligence is a growing concern in New York. Every year hospitals, health professionals, and other care providers spend over $3 billion paying out medical malpractice claims, paying an average of over 30 claims per day for medical errors.
The medical malpractice lawyers at Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm have helped hundreds of New York families recover compensation after injuries that have resulted from negligent medical care.
Located in Midtown-Manhattan, New York, our law firm serves patients that have suffered medical negligence throughout New York City (including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island).
The medical malpractice statute of limitations typically provides patients, or their families, 2.5 years (30 months) from the date of their injury to file a claim - a much shorter period than many other types of claims.

What Does It Take To Justify A Medical Malpractice Claim in New York?
The Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm holds physicians and hospitals accountable for medical negligence resulting in lasting disability, grave illness or fatality. Our lawyers work hard and are recognized as leaders in uncovering medical malpractice and making those providers pay. An unsuccessful surgery or other adverse outcome is not necessarily malpractice.

- Failure to Diagnose Cancer
- Emergency Room Errors
- Surgery Errors
- Medication Errors
- Birth Injuries
- Nursing Errors

Our founding attorney, Howard Raphaelson, is the grandson of Jacob D. Fuchsberg, the first attorney in the U.S. to obtain a $1 million recovery for a personal injury. In affiliation with his grandfather’s namesake firm, our legal team has recovered numerous million dollar verdicts and settlements in medical malpractice cases.
A $2.2 million award on behalf of a young teaching aide who is legally blind because of repeated failures to diagnose the cause of her severe headaches, despite three emergency room visits in one month. We proved that timely referral, diagnosis, and treatment could have prevented the irreversible damage to her vision.
A $750,000 settlement for a 45-year-old woman whose breast cancer went untreated for six months because her OB-GYN doctor failed to inform her of a suspicious mass found on a sonogram. The award for the complications she suffered from the delayed diagnosis.
