We represent patients suffering from significant damages caused by medical malpractice arising from:
Our resources, skill and commitment, coupled with some of the most respected and talented trial lawyers in this area of the law, have enabled our firm to achieve multiple multimillion-dollar successes, despite often facing some of the most well-financed law firms the insurance industry can fund.
Researching and proving malpractice can be costly and highly complex. Nevertheless, our firm makes the financial commitment to fully investigate and prosecute medical malpractice claims. We have worked with a wide array of experts best suited to uncover frequently overlooked evidence of negligence.
Our NY attorneys have been recognized by Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America, The National Trial Lawyers Association, and Pulse Magazine’s Top 10 Legal Eagles, and also are recipients of the highest rating (AV®) from Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings.
Every medical malpractice case we handle is staffed by highly skilled and experienced lawyers who are dedicated to helping you recover the maximum amount for your injury.
Our verdicts and recoveries speak for themselves and are consistently among the highest in the State. In the last 10 years we have recovered over $2 Billion for individuals injured and for families of those who have died due to the wrongful acts of others.
Twin Brain Damaged at Birth – $61.6 Million Verdict
In favor of our client, an injured twin (Twin “B”), who was delivered 42 minutes after his brother, (Twin “A”) without being continually monitored for fetal distress. Twin “B” suffered asphyxia shortly prior to birth. We proved to the Jury that proper monitoring would have revealed signs of oxygen deprivation, which would have warranted an earlier delivery via cesarean section. Twin “B”, now age 6 is intelligent, but requires the assistance of a walker or wheelchair and has difficulty with his speech. His brother, Twin “A”, is fine.
Childbirth Injuries – $26 Million Verdict
The jury deliberated for eight hours and returned a verdict in favor of the plaintiff, awarding more than $26 million for the child’s past and future pain and suffering. The jury also awarded $500,000 for the wrongful death of her twin sister, who died 28 days after birth.
Failure To Diagnose Head Trauma – $10.73 Verdict
In favor of our client, a young girl, and against the hospital, which failed to promptly diagnose and treat the effects of head trauma that she suffered after she was hit by a car while crossing the street. As a result, the child lost all vision and remains permanently blind. We proved that the emergency room should have taken cat scans which would have revealed that there was pressure on the child’s brain, requiring emergency surgery. Had the surgery, (placement of a shunt) been performed, the child’s vision would have been spared.
Failure to Diagnose Breast Cancer – $7.65 Million Verdict
In favor of our client, a Director of Nursing, who had a mammogram/sonogram of her left breast. The sonogram revealed three small cysts. Our proof was that the Doctor did not follow up on that finding over the next two years and that he was obligated to make sure the patient had additional mammograms and sonograms. When the patient felt a lump in that same breast, for the first time, (about two years after her last visit with the Doctor), she went for another mammogram and cancer was discovered shortly thereafter. The Doctor’s negligence caused the cancer to spread to the bones and then to the lungs, making the disease terminal and depriving the patient of any chance of cure or recovery.
Cerebral Palsy – $4.5 Million Verdict
In favor of our client, a newborn, and against the hospital which failed to render treatment to the infant who was having breathing difficulties. The infant had a normal delivery but developed problems breathing in the nursery despite observations by the nurse which indicated respiratory problems. No doctor arrived to assist the child, resulting in a mild case of cerebral palsy. The jury held that the child’s brain damage was a result of medical malpractice.
