Steps To Filing A Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

Medical malpractice lawsuitMedical procedures can be minor or as major as brain or heart surgery. Thousands of these surgeries take place every day. Unfortunately, some of these procedures lead to medical malpractice. That’s a real concern for anyone who is facing surgery, no matter how minor. You might be surprised to learn that medical malpractice happens more often than you may think. In fact, medical negligence is the third leading cause of death, right behind cancer and heart disease. That’s a pretty scary statistic, especially if you’re getting ready to have a medical procedure. In the unfortunate event that you become a victim of medical malpractice, it’s important to know of the steps you should take when filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

These employees, essentially paid to “sleep on the job,” endanger the patients for whose care they are responsible. At Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, our attorneys are encouraged to hear that steps are being taken to confront these examples of neglect in our nursing homes and other health care facilities. As such occurrences continue to come to light, we want to be on the side of those who aggressively crack down on instances of Long Island nursing home neglect.
