The misdiagnosis of Lyme disease

Many New Yorkers are treated for Lyme disease each year. Some of them do not even require such treatment because their condition has been misdiagnosed. This can result in patients paying for medical care they do not need, while at the same time not being able to obtain the treatment they actually require.

Common dangers New York construction workers face

On Aug. 1, an OSHA rule went into effect increasing the maximum penalty for a serious violation to $12,741. The penalty for a willful or repeated violations increased to $124,709, and the increases were part of an effort to make sure that they went up along with the cost of living. According to OSHA, the most common type of health and safety violations since 2012 are nearly identical to data from previous years in the construction industry.

When doctors lie on the witness stand

New York residents who are ill or injured and go to see their doctors or other health care professionals expect that the practitioners will exhibit utmost care in treating them. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and in some instances a doctor's error can lead to the filing of a medical malpractice lawsuit. At trial, it is customary for both the plaintiff and defendant to call upon medical experts as witnesses.
