New York: Medical malpractice ranking and statistics

Living in New York, there's a possibility that you'll need medical care at some point in your life. One thing you might be worried about is the likelihood of medical malpractice. Fortunately, there is data that can help put your mind at ease.

One-time doctor convicted of malpractice aims to practice again

How would you feel if you found out that the person performing medical procedures on you had been accused and convicted of medical malpractice in the past? What would you say if you found out that the doctor had changed his name and performed services he was no longer able to perform?

Are medical errors really the third-leading cause of death?

Medical errors aren't just little things like forgetting to check on a patient. They can be serious and cause permanent injuries or death. It's vital for nurses, doctors and other medical professionals to be at their best at all times and to make sure they give their full attention to each patient they see.

You can pursue compensation for a breach of confidence

A breach of doctor-patient confidentiality is its own kind of negligence. Whether or not it hurts a patient directly, it's expected that doctors will respect the privacy of their patients. Telling someone about a patient's welfare can impact him or her, whether it leads to termination at a job or difficulties between family and friends. Doctors have access to patient financials as well as medical conditions, both of which are protected under law.

Death of Joan Rivers: Doctors take responsibility

Anyone who loses a loved one after a routine medical procedure may have questions about what went wrong. Sometimes, there was no way that a doctor could know that the patient would struggle with anesthesia or other conditions during surgery. However, in many cases, mistakes that are made can lead to life-threatening conditions or even the death of a patient under the medical team's care.

You can seek compensation after suffering medical negligence

Medical malpractice cases form in the most dire of circumstances; a patient suffered an injury because a doctor performed the wrong surgery, a baby suffered brain damage because an OB-GYN didn't recognize signs of trouble, or a patient suffers a life-altering infection because of improper sanitation in the hospital. All of these situations could be like one that causes you to suffer an injury. When you do, it's important to know that you do have the right to seek out compensation.

The high personal and financial costs associated with medical mistakes

Medical doctors are among the most respected and trusted of all professionals. Every year, millions of Americans seek medical advice and entrust their health and very lives to doctors who they rely upon to provide a correct diagnosis and effective treatment plan. Unfortunately, while doctors are highly educated and trained, they are not infallible and this fact is evidenced by the estimated 210,000 to 440,000 patients in the U.S. who die annually due to medical mistakes.
