Residents of New York who seek medical treatment trust their doctors to take the time and care to make informed, professional and often life-saving decisions. In another state, however, due to alleged doctor error and hospital negligence, a woman is now left without her foot and lower leg. The woman has filed a medical malpractice suit against Lifepoint Hospitals and the other parties deemed responsible.
When New Yorkers have serious health problems requiring surgery, they rely on doctors and surgeons to provide the best treatment possible. A woman in another state recently filed a medical malpractice against a hospital, alleging that its staff failed to provide adequate care. The lawsuit claims that, following a surgery performed there, the plaintiff suffered brain damage.
