New babies are born in New York every day. Many are born without incident and are able to go home with their loving parents. Unfortunately, for some newborns, they do not have the luxury of going home to grow up with their health intact. Due to the negligence of the health care personnel responsible for their wellbeing, these innocent babies are left with a lifetime of struggles.

The New York State Department of Health Board for Professional Medical Conduct is charged with the responsibility of investigating and prosecuting claims of medical malpractice against physicians, who are also licensed by the state. Distinct from a medical malpractice lawsuit, these proceedings can result in professional sanctions against a doctor for his or her actions. In addition to censure and reprimand, the Board can issue fines, order education or retraining as well as community service. It can also order revocation or surrender of the physician's license. While the Board serves an important function, one cause for concern is that its determinations often come too long after the conduct that formed the basis for the original complaint.

It seems as if every state in the U.S., including New York, is experiencing an increase in medical malpractice lawsuits. While cases such as surgical mistakes get a lot of press, other cases are beginning to receive more attention. Claims of medical malpractice based on drug abuse or prescription drug overdoses are receiving increased scrutiny in our courts.

When a New York medical malpractice investigation looks into a claim of hospital negligence, the inquiry focuses on at least two principal areas. First, what actually occurred and how did it happen? Second, what did the hospital do or not do that caused or contributed to the injuries? Considering the second question, were there previous complaints of hospital negligence similar in nature? If so, what were the specifics and what did the hospital do to address the issues?

Although there are not a lot of publicized medical malpractice cases pending in New York City, it is topic that has taken the spotlight following the death of the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray is facing charges that claim he breached care standards that ultimately caused Jackson's death. The claim is that he committed medical malpractice by administering anesthetics to the singer in a negligent manner.

It is a sad day in New York when a doctor makes a mistake during a common medical procedure. A 74-year-old man incurred serious injury that eventually led to his death, after receiving a thoracentesis. This procedure involves placing a needle through the chest of the patient, in order to collect a fluid sample from the space around the lungs. Regrettably, hospital injuries are a growing cause of concern across the country.

Medical malpractice is part of the curriculum at the University of Buffalo Medical School in New York. An adjunct research instructor of family medicine knows from personal experience the havoc that medical errors and other forms of medical malpractice in hospitals can create. Citing the fact that 180,000 Medicare patients die each year across the country due to medical error, the teacher asks students to consider the very human side of each tragedy. She should know; her mother was one.

Misdiagnosis is a serious problem in the New York medical community. Sometimes the advice given to patients is simply wrong and often the patients tragically follow the recommendations they have been urged to observe. One recent misdiagnosis, which brought the entire issue into focus, actually resulted in good news. But it was only because the patient refused to follow the doctor's advice.

When you have sought medical treatment for an injury or illness, only to suffer additional injuries because of negligence by a doctor, nurse or other medical caregiver, an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer can help you pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses. The laws and procedures governing medical malpractice in New York can be confusing and intimidating. You can find it difficult to know whether you have a claim, and what you need to do to get the compensation you need to cover your losses and move forward with your life.

A fatal birth injury resulting from medical malpractice is catastrophic for the mother and family. The months of planning and pregnancy, the hopes and dreams for the life of a new family member, are snuffed out in a matter of moments. The mother is left to grieve for a life that never got the chance to live.
