New York appeals court emphasizes importance of judge neutrality

Dealing with a birth injury can be a draining and expensive experience for a parent in New York City and often they choose to file a lawsuit against the hospital or doctor in an effort to meet the additional medical care their child needs. Many injuries caused by medical staff can result in a child who struggles with cerebral palsy, requiring ongoing medical care for the child's entire life. The role of a justice or judge to make sure that the atmosphere in the courtroom remains neutral so that a jury can decide for themselves if the doctor or hospital is at fault.

New York legislation proposes new time limit for medical lawsuits

Our readers may remember the story of a woman in Queens who was the victim of multiple emergency room mistakes in diagnosing her condition, before it was discovered that she had lung cancer. While the woman had been planning to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, she was unable to do so before her death due to New York law and time limits. According to the law, victims of urgent care errors and other medical mistakes must file within two and a half years for a private hospital and 15 months for a city hospital.

Surgical errors result in loss of New York man's nose

Doctors in New York City who decide to specialize in surgery spend years learning from more experienced physicians and therefore it is difficult to understand why surgical errors happen. When a patient is injured during a surgery, that person may have to undergo additional surgeries in order to repair the damage, experience undue pain and suffering, and face thousands of dollars in additional medical care.

State court clarifies rule in medical malpractice case

When a hospital error is made, sometimes the patient may find themselves with an injury that requires additional medical care, separate from the problem that they came in with. People in New York City have a general trust in their hospitals and for the most part, many go to a hospital, receive the right treatment and are able to return home again. Others are not so lucky and may be a victim of incorrect treatment, a missed diagnosis or even a surgical error.

Nursing home abuse a growing problem nationwide

There are many older people that live in New York City and at some point in time, children and family members may have to make the difficult decision of placing their older family in a care center. Caring for an elderly adult that suffers from physical or mental issues can be taxing on family and often they believe that in a nursing home, the person will receive the care and attention that they require.
