Injuries in hospitals happen for various reasons and sometimes can be very serious. We know because our experienced New York medical malpractice lawyers have worked with many people who sustained an injury at a hospital in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx or elsewhere in New York.
At Frekhtman & Associates, our experienced New York City hospital injury attorneys have dedicated their careers to help people faced with such serious medical malpractice issues.
Research estimates up to 440,000 Americans are dying annually from preventable hospital errors. This puts medical errors as the third leading cause of death in the United States, underscoring the need for patients to protect themselves and their families from harm, and for hospitals to make patient safety a priority.
The federal government penalizes hundreds of hospitals throughout the country for improper practices. In New York for example, 64 hospitals, that’s about 4 out of 10 hospitals, have been penalized for preventable injuries in the penalty year of 2017.
Falls resulting in injury are a prevalent patient safety problem. Every year in the United States, hundreds of thousands of patients fall in hospitals, with 30-50 percent resulting in an injury.
Hospital injuries cover a broad range. Any patient of any age or physical ability can be at risk for a fall in a hospital for example due to physiological changes due to a medical condition, medications, surgery, procedures, or diagnostic testing that can leave them weakened or confused.
Some of the most common hospital malpractice cases we handle involving people injured while in hospital care include:
