Medical malpractice and the New York Medical Indemnity Fund

Complications that occur at the time of birth often result in serious and chronic injuries. Infants who survive preventable birth injuries may require life-long care, as well as ongoing medical treatment and rehabilitation. Medical malpractice damages awards can assist in compensating victims and their families for expenses relating to medical costs and day-to-day care needs, but even that is not always enough. That is why it is important for medical malpractice victims and their families to be familiar with New York’s Medical Indemnity Fund.
