New York Medical Malpractice Wrongful Death

Recovered Millions on Behalf of Our Clients

It is estimated that there are approximately 50,000 or more preventable deaths every year that are deaths from medical malpractice. When a patient dies because of hospital or physician negligence, the family of the deceased individual has the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible parties. If your loved one died because of medical malpractice, you need to speak with an experienced New York medical malpractice lawyer about your legal rights.

Medication Error

Mistakes in the dosage and administration of prescription drugs are the leading cause of malpractice wrongful death. Patients who are sick or injured are already in a compromised state because their bodies are weakened by their illness. When a drug error is made, their bodies are susceptible to the adverse side effects of the incorrect drug. Even the smallest error in dosage can be fatal to a patient. If your family member was prescribed the wrong drug or administered the wrong dosage and it resulted in their death, you should speak with a NY wrongful death attorney about filing a claim for compensation.

Misdiagnosis & Surgical Errors

Another cause of medical malpractice death is misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious condition. The failure to diagnose often occurs with cancer patients, and it deprives them or precious time to fight their cancer. If your loved one died because their illness was misdiagnosed or went undiagnosed for too long, they were the victim of medical malpractice.

Surgical errors can also be fatal to a patient. Loss of blood, errors in surgery, or the retention of a surgical tool can kill a surgery patient. The frequency with which these preventable deaths occur is horrifying, particularly with regard to surgical tools, especially surgical sponges, being left inside the patient.
