Investigating Your Claim and Gathering Valuable Evidence
We utilize essential resources in order to initiate an investigation into your claim, including working with medical experts that may testify on your behalf as to how your medical provider breached their duty of care and what standard care would have been if you had seen a different provider with similar skills and experience.
We also evaluate the severity of your injuries by assessing medical records, diagnoses, and other details to showcase how their breach of duty of care resulted in a decline in your ability to live your day-to-day life as before.

We ensure that we prepare your case for trial by evaluating all relevant strengths and obstacles and strategizing for the best possible outcome so you may obtain the compensation you deserve for the harm you have suffered.
Determining Liability in a Nassau County Medical Malpractice Claim
There are various parties that may be held liable for the injuries you have suffered due to medical malpractice. If a medical professional’s performance falls below the accepted standards of care and results in harm to the patient, the physician, surgeon, nurse, anesthesiologist, technician, or hospital may be held liable for medical malpractice.
In order to have a successful medical malpractice claim, you must prove elements of negligence caused your medical malpractice injuries:
- Establishing a lawful duty of care: There was a patient-doctor relationship, which established a lawful duty of care.
- Violation of duty: The medical professional failed to uphold the standard of care, which resulted in a medical error or significant injury.
- Causation: The medical professional caused you direct harm by violating the standards of care.
- You incurred damages: You suffered tremendous losses, such as costly medical expenses, lost wages, disability, scarring, disfigurement, or other negligence-related losses.
At Cohen & Jaffe, we can help you prove the negligent care of your medical provider by conducting an investigation into the incident, examining evidence, and building a case based on the testimony and evidence we obtain.
