MR. IRA SLAVIT: Levine & Slavit has represented many people who have been injured as a result of malpractice throughout the New York metropolitan area, including Long Island in various situations, including: a failure to timely diagnosis conditions, failure to prescribe medicine and make timely referrals to specialists, prescribing medicine improperly, injuries during childbirth and different situations where the doctor has departed from the good standards of care that are accepted in the community. At Levine & Slavit we make a point of trying to stay on top of the latest developments in medical law so that we can have that for the benefit of our clients. We also have experience in consulting with experts to determine whether or not there is a viable claim of malpractice. Not every bad result means that there was malpractice. We have the ability to contact doctors to get opinions before a lawsuit is started. Because you can't even file a lawsuit in New York state unless you're able to file a certificate of merit. So we do get that opinion early, if there is an opinion that there is a viable malpractice case.
