Malpractice May Occur No Matter How Experienced a Doctor May Be


Q: Is choosing the most experienced doctor for my surgery the safest choice?

No one wants to have surgery. But when it’s necessary, most people seek out the best surgeon to handle their procedure. They ask friends for recommendations and read reviews in search of a specialist-- maybe even the head of the department. Surely that’s the best person for the job, right?

According to some unhappy patients, choosing the head of orthopedic surgery could come back to bite you in the… hip. Or the knee.

Bronx Teen in Hot Water Over Scalding Injury


Q: Can a minor be arrested for assault?

High School Football Practice: Negligence in the End Zone?


Q: Are players’ deaths during rigorous pre-season training sessions grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit?

This summer, an upcoming high school freshman on an academic scholarship to a private Catholic school in the Bronx died during his second pre-season work-out with the junior varsity football team.

Relatives have reportedly questioned whether "heat and negligence" caused the boy’s death. During a running drill the boy allegedly "told coaches he was exhausted but was told to run one more lap.

Bronx Motorcycle Accident Claims Motorcycle Club Co-Founder


Q: Is every death a wrongful death?

There is something particularly tragic, and also ironic, in hearing of a biker dying in a motorcycle accident while he was reportedly returning home from a fallen fellow biker's memorial. Especially when the biker was "very involved in community service and was very loved by everyone".

The Bronx motorcycle accident occurred about 2:00 am when the victim-- who was reportedly traveling home from the memorial along with "approximately 20" members of the Tru 31 Motorcycle Club he co-founded-- rear-ended a sedan and was sent into a guardrail.
