The above may be too hard to overlook among residents of the Big Apple and New York State in general. The state already boasts the nation’s lowest stroke mortality rate, with just 9.3% at stroke centers in NYC and 12.2% in upstate facilities. Tight regulations on stroke treatment and effective administering of anti-clotting medication were the main attributes.
However, despite the glowing data, anyone can still get a stroke. Some medical practitioners doing a checkup on you can still read the data wrong and diagnose a potential stroke as something else. When this happens and you or a loved one suffers painfully, you need skilled New York City medical malpractice lawyers like those from The Law Offices of Joseph M. Lichtenstein to help you seek justice.
