What is the purpose of declaratory judgment actions?

At times, an insurer and its insured are at odds with each other. Declaratory judgment actions filed here in New York and elsewhere can head off any potential controversies between the party by outlining each of their rights and responsibilities under an insurance policy as they move forward. Important matters of law are outlined and decided in order to remove any extraneous issues that could hinder negotiations and any future legal actions involving the parties.

How the actions of physicians relate to medical malpractice

Doctors are human, and are, therefore, at risk of making a mistake when it comes to their care of patients, which is something that patients here in New York and elsewhere sometimes fail to remember.
