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.
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.
