Misdiagnosis and Failure to DiagnoseWhen patients turn to their physicians for diagnosis and treatment, they have every reason to expect that they will receive care of at least a competent standard. While medical professionals are, like all humans, imperfect and capable of mistakes, they are ethically and legally obligated to provide the best care that they possibly can. At minimum, they must provide diagnosis and treatment of a reasonable standard at all times.

When it comes to diagnosis, this reasonable standard is not difficult to meet. If a patient voices complaints and exhibits symptoms that would result in a competent medical professional arriving at a certain diagnosis, that diagnosis must at least be considered and pursued diligently by all medical professional

HEALTH CARE REFORM BILL AND MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Mar 30, 2010 — by Gary Zucker

One of the many concerns about the health care reform bill that was recently signed by President Obama was that it might deprive those who have suffered devastating injuries or death due to the mistakes of doctors and other medical providers of their right to a jury trial. Fortunately, although the bill permits all states, including New York, to institute alternatives to jury trials in order to resolve medical malpractice lawsuits, it also provides that such alternatives are optional. This means that under the health care bill, plaintiffs in a medical malpractice suit will retain their right to have their claims heard and determined by a jury, a fundamental right under our Constitution. In addition, the proposal to institute caps (limits) on the awards for medical malpractice was defeated, thus ensuring that those who are severely injured due to malpractice will recover just compensation.

If you or a family member have suffered an injury due to medical malpractice ple


Time Extended For Ground Zero Workers to File Claims

Immediately after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, thousands of selfless individuals bravely ventured to the site of Ground Zero to assist in the rescue and recovery efforts. Unfortunately, many of these rescue and recovery workers performed this heroic work without any protective equipment and without the proper clothing that we now know was necessary to keep them safe from the toxic debris and dust that they sifted through in order to save as many lives as possible. As a result many rescuers and recovery workers became ill and suffered various long term and permanent injuries.

Under the law as it existed from 2001 through September 2009, rescue and recovery workers who suffered injuries or health problems as a result of their work at Ground Zero had only 90 days from September 11, 2001 to file a claim for compensation with the City of New York. This requirement resulted in the rejection of claims brought by thousands of workers whose injur
