Boy's Death During a Routine Circumcision May Have Been Caused by Medical Malpractice, New York Medical Malpractice Lawyer Believes


New York medical malpractice lawyer David Perecman comments on what strongly appears to be a case of medical malpractice in New York. Toddler Jamaal Coleson Jr. died close to 10 hours after a simple circumcision.

The family accused Beth Israel Hospital of giving the boy the wrong analgesic for the 30-minute procedure. As reported by the New York Post, the boy’s uncle said that the hospital was supposed to give the two-year-old a local analgesic, but instead gave him a general one.

Said New York medical malpractice lawyer Perecman, “Every surgical procedure has certain risks. Even a routine surgery like circumcision is no exception and can result in a wrongful death."

A 2010 study available to New York medical malpractice lawyers estimates that more than 100 baby boys die from circumcision complications annually. Lawyers at the New York medical malpractice law firm, The Perecman Firm, are familiar with these types of cases.
