QUEENS DENTAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEYS

Dentists owe a duty of care to their patients.  They must advise them about procedures that are necessary to maintain their dental health and their general health.  Specialist referrals are also very important.  A dentist that notices gum disease should refer the patient to a periodontist in a timely manner so that that periodontal disease does not progress into tooth loss.  Teeth that cannot be saved might need to be pulled.  Cost is often an issue as most people do not have dental insurance, but that should not impact the dentist’s work.  If a patient cannot afford the treatment the dentist recommends, they can be referred to a teaching hospital or clinic.  If you have suffered from the improper dental care you should contact Queens Dental Malpractice Attorneys to discuss your options.

New York’s “Scaffold Law” Protects Injured Construction Workers

New York State Labor Law § 240/241 was one of the first labor laws enacted in the United States.  It predates the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Workers Compensation Programs.  It was enacted in 1885, and despite lobbying to repeal it, has survived to this day.
