Many people in New York undergo routine dental procedures. Often, the fact that these procedures are considered "routine" puts patients' minds at ease.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
