The Lanier Law Firm strongly believes that all patients deserve the highest standard of medical care. That is why we place such a strong emphasis on gaining justice for victims of New York medical malpractice.
When patients do not receive treatment that meets or exceeds medical industry standards, serious injury or death may result. Between 44,000 and 98,000 people die each year due to medical errors in hospitals, according to the National Academy of Sciences. These deaths may be due to human error or systematic issues. An additional 7,000 deaths are attributed to medication errors that take place both inside and outside of hospitals every year.
