Medical professionals support new bill

Most will agree that being ill enough to warrant time as a patient is one of the worst things one may have to endure. However, the medical professionals providing the necessary care may also have cause for trepidation, especially in the event that the medical facility may face a malpractice lawsuit. New York is home to many medical care providers, and one of their concerns is likely the high costs of malpractice claims.

New York insurance industry will face challenges in 2017

The evolution of technology touches nearly every aspect of life. Cell phones now seem to be an extension of some people's arms, and they impact New York families, business and leisure. They also impact the highways, but cell phones are just one area of technology that promises to have a major effect on the auto insurance industry during the upcoming year. Some of the changes in the future of transportation include automated vehicles and damage claims regarding distracted driving.

Woman claims medical malpractice after nurses mix up babies

Hospitals take every precaution to ensure newborns are protected and well cared for. Many hospitals in New York and across the country now provide high security in their maternity wings, and nurses tag babies with identification bracelets and tracking devices to prevent them from ending up in the wrong hands. Nevertheless, a mother in another state is suing a hospital for medical malpractice after her baby was given to the wrong mother.

Medical professionals under scrutiny after woman dies

In many New York neighborhoods, paramedics are often asked to perform their jobs in the middle of chaos and confusion. Surrounded by emotional crowds, medical professionals must assess injuries and get the patients to a stable condition before transporting them to a hospital. In one recent incident, however, the patient's injury was not apparent to the paramedics, and the woman they were treating did not survive.
