What Is Medical Negligence?

Whether you are undergoing routine medical care or major surgery, you expect your care provider to follow all appropriate procedures. Unfortunately, this is sometimes not the case.

When a person is failed by a care provider in medical treatment or in the distribution of medications, that person has been a victim of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can lead to minor injuries such as an allergic reaction to medication, or major ones, such as an operation performed on the wrong site. Learn more by watching this video.

If you have suffered medical malpractice, you need an attorney experienced in these cases to defend your rights. At Pegalis & Erickson of Long Island, we have years of experience defending clients with medical malpractice claims. To speak with an attorney about your case, call our Lake Success office at (516) 684-2900.

Study By Johns Hopkins Finds Surgical 'Never Events' Happen At Least 4,000 Times Per Year

Chest X-Ray

A recent malpractice study by Johns Hopkins reveals that “never events”, events which under no circumstances should ever happen during surgery, occur at least 4,000 times per year. Marty Makary, M.S., M.P.H., an associate professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins weighs in on the findings in the article saying, "There are mistakes in health care that are not preventable. Infection rates will likely never get down to zero even if everyone does everything right, for example. But the events we’ve estimated are totally preventable. This study highlights that we are nowhere near where we should be and there’s a lot of work to be done."
