Social media posts suppressed in medical malpractice case

Anyone with any type of experience with the legal system, and even those who watch courtroom dramas on television, know the importance of evidence. Essentially, the strength of your evidence compared to the strength of the other side's evidence makes the difference in a case, regardless of type.

Those who fail to utilize these rules may be taken advantage of and find themselves facing unwanted outcomes.

Can you spot elder abuse? The ER may not, according to new study.

Our New York firm anticipates medical malpractice defenses

When negligent doctors, nurses and the hospitals that employ them leave a patient harmed, they should be held accountable for their actions. Although errant medical professionals in New York may be punished by licensing boards and looked down upon by their peers, this does nothing to aid their victims in their pursuit of recovery. The damages suffered as a result of medical malpractice can be quite extensive. Victims may suffer physical and emotional pain and suffering, and their medical expenses may be exorbitant. Additionally, those victims who are so injured that they cannot work may lack the income needed to provide basic financial stability for themselves and their families.

What are some common medical malpractice defenses?

Advances in medical technologies and treatments have truly reshaped today's health care industry. Many New Yorkers who may have once been left without any diagnosis and treatment options might now be able to have their pain reduced or eliminated, and their medical condition slowed or completely cured. Yet, an efficient and effective medical diagnosis and treatment is dependent upon a medical professional's competency. When a doctor fails to properly diagnose a medical condition, or commits a surgical error, medication mistake or some other form of negligence, then a victim may be left with significant damages.
