Medical malpractice involving a child can have a devastating effect on the lives of both the parent and child. Children are vulnerable and more often than not do not understand what is happening with them. While adults can at least vocalize and have the ability to question medical treatment, children simply do not enjoy this luxury. Even in pain children are pacified and made to trust doctors and nurses treating them.

Cancer patients in New York might be surprised to learn that, since 1970, a doctor has been treating patients with antineoplastons, for which there is insufficient evidence to prove that they work. Despite being backed by actress Suzanne Somers and famous surgeon Dr. Oz, the Texas Medical Board has investigated the doctor, and he could lose his license for medical misconduct.

According to the Journal of the American Dental Association, there are certain types of dental procedures that require more intensive surgeries or complicated processes in which malpractice is more common. Consequently, dentists may be more prone to make errors when administering or performing these treatments when compared to other, more simple procedures.

When it comes to injuries caused by medical malpractice during emergency medical care, there are special rules that apply. "First responders" are protected by state laws from most lawsuits. And although there are no such protections for doctors and nurses in the emergency room, the very nature of emergencies lowers the professional expectation to avoid medical mistakes.

When a person undergoes a surgical procedure, no matter how simple or complex, there is always a chance of risk. The risk stems not just from the medical procedure, but also from the process of administering anesthesia and patient care.

Between 1999 and 2008, a high proportion of medical malpractice claims were filed in New York State. Court Statistics.org reports that in 2008 medical malpractice cases resulted in 7.4% of all tort cases, and 1.1% of all civil lawsuits filed in the state. As medical malpractice laws differ from state to state, it is important to understand the New York State laws pertaining to medical malpractice before filing a lawsuit.

New York patients may find it interesting that poor communications between patients and hospital staff contributed to about 7,000 of 23,000 medical malpractice claims that were filed between 2009 and 2013. Of these claims, more than 1,700 involved the death of a patient. The numbers indicate that miscommunication is a major problem that needs to be addressed by hospitals and staff.

New York patients may be interested in a study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, that looked into the rate of recurring malpractice claims against physicians. People implicitly and explicitly trust their doctors on a daily basis, but medical errors can and do sometimes happen. Knowing some of the statistics behind malpractice claims can help patients make a more informed decision about their own well-being.

Paraplegia is characterized by complete paralysis of the lower half of the human body, along with nonexistent sensory and motor functions. Typically, some error during a spinal-cord surgery or a direct injury on the spinal cord can lead to paraplegia.

New York patients may be interested to learn that, according to a study published in the The New England Journal of Medicine, doctors who have been sued for malpractice are more likely to be named as a defendant in another malpractice lawsuit. The study found that, during the period in question, 1 percent of the physicians analyzed were involved in 32 percent of the claims that were paid.
