We rely on psychologists, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals to assist us at our most vulnerable times. Unfortunately, sometimes our trust is betrayed.
If you or someone you love has suffered harm as a result of the negligence or misconduct of a mental health professional, contact a White Plains malpractice lawyer at The Law Offices of Jason B. Kessler today. We handle all types of psychological malpractice claims for clients throughout White Plains and the surrounding areas, including Yonkers, Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx. We can file a claim for you and negotiate with the insurance company to make sure you receive the maximum monetary compensation possible for your physical injury and emotional suffering.
Psychologists and psychiatrists are trained to recognize the symptoms of mental illnesses. When they fail to pay close enough attention, the results can be devastating. If you or someone you love has been injured because of a psychologist’s failure to treat mental illness properly or due to a psychiatrist’s error in prescribing medications, we can assist you.
Handling Your Case for Intentional Wrongdoing
The harm that psychologists and psychiatrists can inflict on their patients does not always derive from negligence. Sometimes mental health professionals use their positions and training to take advantage of their patients, committing boundary violations with disastrous consequences. If you or someone you love has been abused by a psychologist or has been coerced into sexual relations with a psychologist, we can represent you.
Sophisticated Legal Experience for Your Psychological Malpractice Claims
When you bring a claim for psychological malpractice, you probably will not be dealing with the psychologist or psychiatrist directly. You will be fighting largely with the insurance companies, who will do everything they can to avoid accepting liability. To fully protect your best interests, you need an attorney who is familiar with the tactics and strategies used by insurance companies.
Prior to founding our firm, attorney Kessler worked for insurance companies defending professional malpractice cases. He knows how to protect your rights.
