A person in New York who is sick enough to visit the emergency room places a great deal of faith in the medical care providers he or she will see while there. Often, these patients are in too much pain or experiencing too much anxiety to fully understand their medical situation. Unfortunately, the decisions that doctors must make often have life-altering implications. For example, a lawsuit filed on behalf of a woman in a persistent vegetative state claims that doctor errors resulted in brain damage.
For most people in New York, having a baby is a time of excitement and anticipation. However, because there are potential complications that can be devastating for mothers, they need skilled medical care.

Many parents in New York and across the country dream about their children's future as soon as they learn they are expecting. They often wonder what kind of student their children will be and what sort of career they will choose for themselves. Unfortunately, a lawsuit claims that the dreams that parents in another state had for their son were drastically altered due to doctor errors that led to birth injuries.
When an expectant mother in New York has experienced a relatively complication-free pregnancy, she typically goes into the labor and delivery process with the expectation that she will leave the hospital with her healthy baby a few days later. While this is typically the case, not all deliveries go according to plan. In fact, a family and hospital recently settled allegations that doctor errors caused severe damage for a child born there.
When people are experiencing pain, they often want relief instantly. Regardless of the type of doctor they visit, they expect that they will receive care that is appropriately responsive to their medical needs. As a result, it is likely that no one in New York expects that a simple visit to a chiropractor will ultimately turn fatal. A lawsuit filed in another state, unfortunately, claims that doctor errors led to a model's death after she sought a chiropractic adjustment.
The brain is an amazing organ whose mysteries have not been fully discovered. Unfortunately, brain damage can create lasting, significant harm to a person. When such harm comes as a result of doctor errors in New York, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be appropriate. One woman in another state has recently chosen such action, alleging a neurosurgeon's decisions caused her lasting harm.
With the advances in modern technology, woman and babies in New York and across the country typically have a much safer experience as they go through labor and delivery than they did hundreds of years ago. However, doctors and other medical care staff must often make split-second decisions to protect lives. Failing to do so can have long-term consequences. For example, a judge in another state has recently ruled that a child's brain injuries were caused by doctor errors.
Most people in New York are aware that people who play certain sports are likely at an increased risk of injuries. For example, football players and boxers may face the risk of brain damage, but there is an expectation that doctors and other personnel will take measures to protect such athletes from preventable harm. Unfortunately, a recently filed lawsuit claims that doctor errors prevented a boxing match that occurred in another state from being stopped even though one of the boxers showed signs of brain damage, ultimately leaving the boxer in a persistent vegetative state.
For most parents in New York, the impending birth of a child is a time filled with hope and anticipation. Unfortunately, that experience turned to tragedy for parents in another state. A lawsuit stemming from the child's birth claims that doctor errors resulted in severe brain damage to their infant.
The medical profession revolves around making important decisions. While many decisions may seem relatively minor, in reality they could mean the difference between life and death. Even those who survive after an overlooked diagnosis in New York, for example, may experience the consequences of the failure to run a simple test for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, one woman in another state claims that a misdiagnosis due to doctor errors left her paralyzed and living in a nursing home.
