Family receives compensation after negligence-related death

New York residents may be interested in a recent jury decision which awarded a family $2.4 million. In 2007, a woman died after seeking emergency treatment for severe pain in her abdomen and back. Two years earlier, she had undergone gastric bypass surgery, a relatively common procedure. Often, bowel obstruction is a complication in this type of surgery, but the suit claimed that the failure to diagnose this lead to her death.

Woman sues medical center after death of baby

A recent out-of-state case reflects many aspects of a medical malpractice suit that may be found in New York. The woman is suing the doctors, midwife and two medical care centers after her baby died during birth. Cases of birth injury are always devastating, but it is important to note that these cases occur, and there are legal courses that can be taken.

Hospital negligence results in lost legs for New York woman

While undergoing a simple gynecological procedure, a New York woman's colon was punctured. As a result, the woman suffered from blood poisoning and gangrene, went into cardiac arrest three times in intensive care, lost some of her hearing due to the antibiotics and then had her feet amputated at the ankle. As if this weren't enough for one woman to bear, her legs were then amputated below the knee, all as a result of a surgical error.

$7.5 million settlement reached in oxygen deprivation case

When a patient comes into the hospital, especially a woman who is pregnant, doctors must take all of her complaints seriously, as not only could the patient be in danger, but so could the woman's unborn baby. In fact, these doctors and nurses have a legal duty to uphold a reasonable standard of care.

Breast density law aims to reduce missed diagnoses of cancer

When a doctor looks at a mammogram, he or she could mistake a tumor for dense breast tissue. In fact, a 2011 study by the Mayo Clinic showed that in 75 percent of women's mammograms that indicated dense breast tissue, doctors failed to detect cancer that was present.
