But priests can find themselves in hot water under other circumstances as one man of the cloth—and his parish and archdiocese—recently experienced. Using the wrong words in certain situations may cause psychological issues.

Misdiagnosing Cancer


Q: Is misdiagnosing cancer grounds for a lawsuit?

New York City personal injury attorneys help clients who’ve suffered serious physical and/or psychological injuries as a result of someone else’s negligent, reckless, or intentional actions.

What leads to a personal injury lawsuit?

Common factors in a personal injury action may include:

  • a victim with serious physical and/or psychological injuries
  • a person or entity whose negligent actions (or failures to act) directly resulted in the victim’s injury
  • a person or entity whose reckless actions caused the victim’s injury
  • a person or entity who caused the victim’s injury by acting with malicious intent to harm (which usually involves criminal charges in addition to a civil monetary lawsuit) product liability cases where injuries result from dangerous or defective products or products without adequate instructions or safety warnings.

Lawsuits and Hazing


Q: Is a college liable for fraternity hazing deaths or injuries?

Sending a child off to college is a source of both great pride and a bit of fear for many parents – especially if the child is living on campus in a distant state.

In addition to the usual worries about whether the child will make friends, whether the school is the right “fit”, and whether they can handle the course load academically, parents often worry if their child is safe at school. Colleges are held to high standards when it comes to protecting the students entrusted to their care. Despite this, some college students will find themselves victims of the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of another in a

Determining Liability in a New York Wrongful Death Lawsuit


Q: Can multiple people be sued for an accident?

New York wrongful death attorneys most often wear detective’s hats when determining who is responsible for the death of their client’s loved one. The earlier an attorney is retained the better, so they can be involved as the investigation unfolds, interview witnesses and gather statements (while memories are fresh and before they die or disappear), and otherwise, support their grieving clients. This is how an attorney determines who is responsible for the death and should be sued for damages.

While all deaths are tragic, the death of an innocent young child is extra difficult.

When Fertility Clinics Use the Wrong Sperm


Q: Can I sue a fertility clinic for using the wrong sperm?

New York City medical malpractice attorneys know that the spectrum of potential medical malpractice scenarios is broader than most people realize.
