Was your child injured playing school sports?


The purpose of an individual going into the hospital for surgery is of course to rectify a malady. Unfortunately, over 200,000 people each year die from malpractice, with thousands more coming out of surgery in worse condition than when they went in. Believe it or not, medical malpractice is the third largest cause of death in the United States, right behind heart disease and cancer. In fact, personal injury attorneys in NY can tell you that many of those unfortunate fatalities happen right here in the city.

Medical and surgical malpractice is not to be confused with an individual who suffers illness or death simply because treatment or surgery was unsuccessful. Rather, it is when illness or death occurs because a surgeon, physician, nurse, or other medical professional was negligent and did not properly follow medical procedures and standards.

If you or a loved one has suffered due to the negligence of a medical professional, you’ll want to contact an NYC serious injury lawyer as soon as possible, so that you can receive the compensation you deserve. If a medical malpractice attorney can prove that a doctor, hospital, or other medical facility or professional was negligent, you have the right to receive compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income and ability to earn income, and compulsory damages for care you may need for the remainder of your life. If a family member has died due to negligence, then remaining family members can receive compensation of mental anguish as well.
