Common defenses to medical malpractice claims

All New Yorkers make mistakes from time-to-time. It is part of being human. The hope is that these mistakes are minor and do not have a major effect on the person who made the mistake or those around them. However, this is not always the case, and sometimes the mistakes cause significant problems to those affected by it. For example, mistakes made by doctors and other medical professionals can change people's lives.

Scaffolding collapses and seriously injures worker

The streets of New York can be very crowded during the day. In addition to the normal foot traffic, there is often construction work going on causing sidewalks to be either narrowed or closed. There are also many situations when scaffolding is placed over a sidewalk forcing pedestrians to walk underneath it while work is going on above them. For this reason, it is important that scaffolding is constructed correctly to keep both workers and pedestrians safe.

Distracted driving includes more than just cell phone use

At any given time, a New Yorker can be involved in an accident. Most of the time people arrive at their destination safely, but the risk is always there. This is true even for the safest of drivers. There are a number of factors that contribute to a car accident that are out of the control of drivers. Amongst these are the weather and the actions of other drivers on the road. Sometimes it is impossible to avoid other motorists when they make poor decisions or do not pay attention while they are driving.

Experts are very important in proving medical malpractice

People in New York have different things they own break down from time to time. For example people may have a car that breaks down and needs repairs done to get it running again or to keep it safe. However, if the mechanic makes a mistake most people will not know what went wrong unless they bring it to another mechanic to look at the problem. This is true for when things go wrong with people's bodies as well and they need to go to the doctor to help them get better.
