The health of a child is often a parent's top priority. Generally, parents have no choice but to trust medical professionals to keep their children safe, whether in New York or anywhere else in the nation. Sadly, though, sometimes healthcare professionals fail to exercise the degree of care and skill required to prevent the serious injury or death of child. If either of these occur, a medical malpractice claim could result.
A New York man was indicted for vehicular manslaughter (felony) and possession of a controlled substance (misdemeanor). This comes after his arrest for involvement in a fatal accident in 2015 that left a woman dead. The defendant has since been remanded to the county jail in Ulster. If convicted, he could face a substantial prison term.
