New York City Malpractice Law Firm Champions the Rights of Patients

As the debate over healthcare continues, the attorneys at The Lurie Law Firm, a New York personal injury law firm that specializes in medical malpractice cases, say that protecting a patient’s right to justice is paramount.

Online PR News – 05-October-2009 – New York, New York – According to the staff of medical malpractice experts at Lurie, Ilchert, Mac Donnell and Ryan, LLP (, a leading Manhattan injury law firm that specializes in championing for the rights of victims of medical malpractice, a number of doctors have called for limitations on a patient's ability to sue for malpractice within the framework of the current government healthcare debate, calling many malpractice suits frivolous.

“A reputable law firm never takes frivolous medical malpractice lawsuits, as some would like the public to believe,” says George W. Ilchert, Esq., a partner with the firm of Lurie, Ilchert, Mac Donnell and Ryan, LLP ( “When it comes to medical malpractice lawsuits, the law requires plaintiffs to call upon respected physicians to testify that the defendant was negligent and malpractice insurance carriers generally hire tough lawyers to fight for the physician responsible.”

According to Ilchert, that keeps “frivolous” suits out of the court system or from going too far.

Ilchert notes that professionals such as lawyers, engineers and doctors, are well-paid for their specialized expertise and when any of them makes a mistake that causes harm to their client or, in the case of a doctor, their patient, they should be held accountable.

“Trampling on patients’ rights when it comes to medical malpractice, will not lower health care costs but will likely diminish the level of care that patients currently receive,” says Ilchert. “Ask any one of the countless medical malpractice victims that we have represented and successfully won awards for and you will understand the pain and suffering that medical malpractice can cause.”
