NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE

Under the Public Health Law of the State of New York, nursing home residents are afforded specific protection from neglect. There are rules that mandate proper care to be given, such as proper nutrition and hydration. There are also specific requirements that nursing homes prevent the development or progression of decubitus ulcers, commonly referred to as “bed sores”. Usually these cases include elderly individuals, who typically have multiple medical conditions, defendants usually refer to these as “comorbidity factors”. This usually means that there are complicated issues of causation, or essentially what damages have been sustained as a result of the neglect. It is essential that your potential action be reviewed by attorneys experienced in this area of the law, in order that your loved one has the full benefit of the law which is designed to protect the welfare of nursing home residents.

CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS

Under the labor laws of the State of New York, the Legislature has offered many statutory protections to construction workers, which is a reflection of the legislatures desire to place the responsibility of providing a safe working environment on employers as opposed to workers. Unfortunately, insurance company attorneys have been somewhat successful in recent years in eroding these protections; making it slightly easier for insurance companies to defend these cases. It is therefore extremely important that an injured worker retain an attorney that is experienced in litigating these cases to get the full benefit of New York’s worker friendly labor laws.

Some of the cases we have represented are: Ladder / Scaffold Accidents- Premises / Liability- Workers’ Compensation – On-The-Job Injuries – –Construction Accidents

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Medical Malpractice cases are complex and can involve several different theories, such as failure to diagnose, failure to provide proper treatment, surgical error and lack of informed consent. In order to prove a case of medical malpractice a plaintiff must prove that the particular physician departed from the standard of care in the locality in which the Doctor practices medicine. Unlike other personal injury cases, an attorney must certify to the Court that there was a consultation with an appropriately qualified physician and there is merit to the lawsuit. As such, this involves a comprehensive review of the relevant medical chart(s) by the appropriate expert. Additionally, a large percentage of medical malpractice cases go to trial, as most physicians must consent to settle the case and often times Doctors are unwilling to do so. Therefore, it is essential to have your case reviewed by attorneys who are knowledgeable in this area.

Some of the Medical Malpractice cases we have covered are: Dental Malpractice – Birth Defects / Injury – Brain Damage – Surgical Error – Wrong Diagnosis – Wrong Medication – Pharmacy Error – Failure / Delay Cancer Diagnosis – Plastic Surgery – Implants – Podiatric Malpractice – Bed Sore / Decubitus Ulcer cases – Opiate Opiod Dependency – Dangerous Prescription Drugs – Defective Products – Defective Drugs – Defective Medical Devices
