Bankruptcy disrupts medical malpractice award

Unfortunately for the thousands of patients and families forced to endure the consequences of surgical mistakes that occur every year in the state of New York and all across the country, the process of pursuing a case and gaining compensation for injuries can take years. Not only are medical malpractice victims left to live with the pain and often permanent results of their surgery-related injuries but they may also have to account for the lack of income and financial security they incur as a result of the incident. That is why judgments, however delayed, awarded to malpractice victims are often crucial in supporting them and their families. Having survived a surgery that resulted in serious injuries and complications, one woman endured the process of winning a malpractice suit only to walk away with nothing in the way of compensation.

New trends present new risks for medical malpractice

Each time an individual visits their doctor or seeks medical attention at a New York hospital, personal information regarding everything from their medical history to their medication list to their contact details becomes accessible to a number of other parties. That is why strict policies and safeguards are in place to protect patient confidentiality. With advances in technology and changing approaches to modern medicine, however, some fear that the rights and privacy of patients may be at risk, leading to other issues like medical malpractice.

Potentially limiting legal recourse in birth injury cases

Any time anyone feels that they were subjected to the negligence and/or hurtful actions of another, they have the right to seek legal counsel and pursue a case against the liable party. In the event that a child is hurt, it's often the responsibility of their family to act on their behalf and ensure that their safety and medical needs are accounted for. One state is currently considering legislation that would affect some medical malpractice guidelines and put legal restraints on birth injury victims and their families.

Painkiller prescriptions and potential doctor errors

Incidents of prescription drug dependency and overdose are a major issue in the state of New York, and it's important that physicians and patients both understand how serious the problem is around the country. The findings of a recent survey suggest that a large demographic of patients may be vulnerable to serious medical errors as a result of being prescribed opioid painkillers from multiple sources.

VA accused of unreasonably high medical malpractice rates

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is one of the largest medical groups in the country, and treats millions of patients every year. Countless retired service members and their families rely on medical treatments provided by VA facilities in New York, and expect to receive the same level and quality of care provided by other leading medical carriers. If the findings of more than one recent study are correct, however, VA patients may actually face more incidents of medical malpractice then those treated by other groups.
