Medical Malpractice is the result of a health care professional’s negligence, which leads to injury or death. New York State requires medical professionals and health care institutions to follow a certain "standard of care” within the medical community. If at any time a medical professional or provider does not follow that standard, medical negligence or malpractice may be found. Specific medical malpractice cases can involve surgical errors, emergency room negligence, misdiagnosis of cancer or a critical medical condition, the administration of improper medication, anesthesia errors, and birth injuries.
