Wrongful Death in New York Due to Albany Medical Malpractice

Wrongful Death

Understanding New York Medical Malpractice Causing Albany Wrongful Death

A wrongful death is the ultimate personal injury that could occur in an Albany medical malpractice case.  There are many different ways that it could occur.  As an Albany medical malpractice lawyer, I have some some egregious types of New York medical malpractice resulting in horrific wrongful deaths.  Usually the wrongful death is so catastrophic that the pain and suffering before hand is devastating.  There are many different types of wrongful deaths which include the following:

  • Anesthesia errors – these types of injuries are usually catastrophic and can cause very serious brain injuries before the wrongful death of a patient.  Anesthesia overdoses are simply very dangerous and can be fatal.
  • Surgical errors – excess blood loss, too low of blood pressure, improper surgical position, and other mistakes could be the cause of a wrongful death.
  • Medication errors – mistakes with medications can result in very serious and even fatal errors, including mistakes which are devastating because of complication mix-up complications.
  • Nursing home mistakes – failing to properly care for a patient in a nursing home can also result in very serious personal injuries or even wrongful death.  This includes due to pressure ulcers (also known as bed sores or pressure sores), which can result in significant infections.
  • Infections and sepsis – when there are injuries which are not properly treated and an infection starts, if the infection is not properly cared for it can result in a widespread infection.  A serious infection could be sepsis can become a medical emergency which could result in the death of a patient.

These are just some of the most common ways that a patient could be seriously injured and wrongfully killed due to Albany medical malpractice.  Healthcare providers, hospitals, and other entities should be liable for these mistakes and be held liable for compensation to these victims.
