It is no secret to the hardworking men and women that Block O’Toole & Murphy, LLP represent that the firm is an industry leader that fiercely protects their clients; Now it is no secret to Katie Couric fans, either. Katie Couric, a name and a face that is immediately recognized in the homes of families across the world, now serves as special correspondent for ABC News, contributing to ABC World News, Nightline, 20/20, Good Morning America, This Week and primetime news specials. She also hosts the ‘Katie Couric Show.’ She has handled news stories, large and small, that impact the lives of people all over the world. Recently, her show has focused on medical malpractice; medical mistakes and the tragic consequences for the families that live through them.
In a recent feature on the show website, The ‘Katie Couric Show’ recognized Block O’Toole & Murphy, LLP as “a leading firm for medical malpractice cases.” The feature informs readers about ‘shockingly common’ medical mistakes that can result in tragedy. The firm was used as a source for the piece. We are happy to continue our efforts informing the public about the real concerns related to medical malpractice.
Block O’Toole & Murphy has experience and expertise in medical malpractice cases. The lawyers work tirelessly to ensure that victims of these tragic mistakes and their grieving families recover to the full extent possible under the law. New York law permits families of patients killed, and patients who are injured by medical mistakes to recover compensation for their injuries and losses through a medical malpractice lawsuit. Many states have similar protections afforded to victims of medical malpractice.
Under the law, medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other health care professional provides treatment (or fails to provide treatment) in a way that falls below the accepted standard of medical practice, and his action (or failure to act) results in injury or death to the patient. Many types of acts (and failures to act) constitute grounds for bringing a medical malpractice suit. For example, providing over- and under-doses of anesthesia; failing to diagnose; and leaving medical equipment inside a patient during an operation.
Block O’Toole & Murphy, LLP leads the way in medical malpractice cases because of our experience and the degree of attention and effort we devote to every single case. Our clients appreciate the compassion, care, sensitivity and expertise we bring to their cases. At Block O’Toole & Murphy, we pride ourselves on the comfort, support and relief we have brought to our clients and their sad stories.
