Medical Malpractice

A simple medical mistake can change – and take – a life forever. While patients place their trust in their healthcare providers, at times that trust can be broken. Preventable medical errors kill or seriously injure hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. The statistics regarding medical malpractice are alarming:

  • Over 1,000 deaths per day
  • Approximately 40 wrong site, wrong surgery, wrong patient procedures each week
  • 10,000 serious complication cases each day
  • 1/3 of hospital patients experience a medical mistake

The lawyers of Jacoby and Meyers fight for those in the New York City area who have suffered as a result of a medical error. Our firm is dedicated to seeking justice for the injured.
