Hospitals can be very dangerous places. In 1999, the National Academies of Science's Institute of Medicine released a study titled "To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System." The study found that more than 1 million injuries and up to 98,000 deaths each year could be attributed to medical errors. While efforts have been made to make medicine, surgery and hospitals safer, the fact remains that medical negligence can have devastating results.
The law firm of Kramer, Dillof, Livingston & Moore consistently ranks in the top two or three personal injury plaintiff firms in New York.
