NY Takes A Look At Medical Malpractice

Court Watch Posted on

Crain's New York Business reports that as a one-year New York state moratorium on medical malpractice insurance rate hikes enters its second month, reformers are hoping the state Legislature will come up with ways to lower such costs permanently.

One proposal—not yet in the form of a bill—would limit the number of suits by tightening New York’s lawyer-friendly “comparative negligence” rules to match those of most other states.

New York is one of only 13 states that allow medical malpractice lawsuits to proceed regardless of the degree to which physician negligence allegedly caused a patient’s injury.

If you're in the area, New York medical malpractice lawyer John Q. Kelly and his law firm can assist you. They specialize not only in medical malpractice, but also wrongful death and catastrophic injury. You may recognize him as the Natalee Holloway estate lawyer. Contact him today.
