It can be heartbreaking to learn that a loved one has died as a result of a doctor's negligence. This is grounds for a medical malpractice suit in New York. It is important to file this type of claim quickly following a malpractice situation.
Most New York residents think of a blood draw as a routine procedure. A trip to a medical office to have their blood drawn, followed by a needle stuck in a vein and the blood draw itself. The patient is typically on their way after just a few moments. Unfortunately, one little girl from another state was not so lucky, and her parents are now claiming hospital negligence.
It is a sad but true fact: hospital negligence occurs much more frequently than we would like. This is true here in New York as well as across the rest of the nation. Currently, a woman's son is filing a lawsuit against a hospital in another state where he alleges hospital negligence injured his ailing mother.
As a general rule, C-sections are very beneficial because they often save the lives of unborn children and their mothers. However, in some cases, complications can arise. When the hospital staff does not have the appropriate medication or tools on-hand to combat the complications, it can lead to the mother's or the baby's premature death. Unfortunately, that is what reportedly happened in a recent case outside of New York, when a mother lost her life during a c-section surgery; and this tragic case has led to the filing of a medical malpractice claim.
New York residents may be interested in a shocking case of the husband and eight children of a woman in another state who learned that she may have been frozen while she was still alive. The family has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital allegedly responsible. The 80-year-old woman died in 2010 after suffering a heart attack at home. She was transported to a hospital where medical staff said that their reviving efforts were in vain, and she was pronounced dead.
To many in New York, doctors are considered miracle workers. Unfortunately, they make mistakes just like the rest of us. However, physicians and hospital staff are required to provide a certain standard of care when dealing with patients. When that level of care is not provided and results in the serious injury or death of another, they can be held liable for their negligence. Recently, a young boy's family filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a doctor and the hospital where he practices for allegedly misdiagnosing their son, which ultimately resulted in his death.
From time to time, the waiting room of hospital emergency rooms can become very crowded. As a result, patients may have to wait for quite some time before they can receive medical attention. For some people, time spent waiting is just a major inconvenience, but for others it's the difference between life and death.
Being in the hospital can be a scary experience for many people. Whether you are in the hospital for a routine procedure or you are trying to get your unknown medical condition diagnosed and treated, you usually don't think about the impact a medical error would have on your health.
