To bring a successful medical malpractice claim, you must first be able to establish that a medical relationship existed.

Kobe’s Widow Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit


Q: Can survivors of accident victims sue for damages?

New York City wrongful death attorneys and much of the nation were shocked to learn of the tragic death of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, his teenaged daughter, and seven other people who were all killed in January in a helicopter crash.

Bryant’s widow and mother of the teen reportedly filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter company claiming its pilot, who also perished in the crash, failed to use “ordinary care in piloting the aircraft” and that the company negligently caused the deaths of all on board.

Among the claims of negligence, the lawsuit alleges the pilot:

  • didn’t obtain “proper weather data before taking off”
  • failed to cancel the flight when he did learn of the bad weather conditions; and
  • flew at speeds of 180 mph in fog just before crashing into the mountains.

What Can You Be Compensated for in a Medical Malpractice Claim?


If you or a loved one has been injured due to negligence on the part of a treating medical professional, you may be able to bring a medical malpractice claim seeking compensation for the harm you have suffered. In New York, health care providers have a duty to use reasonable care under the circumstances when treating patients.

To put this another way, they are obligated to uphold a standard of care when treating patients. This standard of care means that a medical provider must act as a similarly situated medical professional would have acted under similar circumstances. Should a doctor or other health care professional fail to uphold this duty and a patient suffers as a result, the patient may be able to seek compensation pursuant to a
