During this coronavirus pandemic, Governor Cuomo recently issued an executive order that limits liability of medical professionals during this pandemic. This means that if you were being treated in relation to COVID-19 and you are injured by a medical professional while being treated for COVID-19 you can not later come back and sue them for medical malpractice. Unless you can show that that medical professional acted in a grossly negligent manner. It is important to know that this new order and heightened gross negligence standard only applies to current treatment rendered for COVID-19. Therefore, if you believe that you've been injured due to medical negligence from a doctor or other healthcare professional that has nothing to do with COVID-19, you may have a claim for medical malpractice.
