Medical Malpractice Injuries
A baby suffered brain damage during delivery in a Bronx Hospital. Because the doctors failed to perform a cesarean section, the baby was denied oxygen and left him with essentially no motor function requiring around the clock care.
Young woman undergoing surgery developed spinal hematoma causing nerve damage to legs. Treating doctors did not timely perform testing to diagnose her condition. Patient not taken back into the operating room timely to reverse the nerve damage. Client paralyzed from waist.
Plastic surgeons who mangled a cosmetic procedure caused a woman to sustain a lower extremity deformity.
While undergoing a spine surgery to treat a lower back injury, the client’s doctor caused a metal screw to hit a spinal nerve causing nerve damage. The case settled during jury selection.
A 52-year-old woman’s primary care doctors failed to diagnose that she was suffering from endocarditis (an infection in the inner lining of the heart). She was subsequently admitted to a Long Island Hospital and passed away due to complications from heart surgery.
A patient at a hospital fell from his bed when the hospital staff did not take the required fall procedures. The fall caused the client to undergo a hip replacement surgery.
During an operation, a surgical cloth was left in a young woman’s abdomen. The patient was subsequently readmitted to the hospital and underwent a second procedure to remove the cloth.
Slip, Trip And Fall ( Premises Liability) Injuries
Three year old child injured in the family’s apartment from a metal latch protruding from the closet door. Multiple surgeries could not restore vision to the eye. The litigation lasted over seven years with many experts retained to show the fault of the landlord and the financial losses the child would sustain in the future. The settlement was structured so the child would receive annual payments for the next 40 years.
An 87 year old woman slipped and fell in her apartment on a plastic drop sheet left by contractors during renovation work. The client sustained a fracture to her hip requiring hip replacement surgery. A Bronx jury awarded the client the above amount for her pain and suffering.
A worker fell from a loading dock when the tractor-trailer he was unloading moved without warning to him. The worker injured his right knee and underwent an arthroscopic surgery. The trucking company went out of business and the case was pursued against the insurance company for the tractor-trailer to collect court judgment.
a 45-year-old woman slipped and fell on an algae condition in a shopping center parking fracturing her ankle and requiring two surgeries. We determined that the algae was caused by runoff water from the lawn in front of a Chase bank and retained a safety expert to support this theory. The case settled during jury selection.
A man leaving a building through a revolving door was struck by a panel of the revolving door when another person was entering the building. The client was thrown to the sidewalk and sustained a broken hip. Our door expert determined that the door’s braking mechanism was not functioning properly.
A man walking from the sidewalk into the subway sustained fractures to his leg when he fell due to a worn and slippery metal step. Our expert determined that the step was unsafe and dangerous. The New York City Transit Authority settled the case for the client’s pain and suffering.
A worker slipped as he was walking down a metal loading dock ramp, causing his right quadriceps tendon to rupture requiring him to undergo quadricep repair surgery and missing a year from work. We immediately retained a safety expert to prove the metal ramp was worn and unsafe and were able to obtain a settlement.
A Manhattan woman walked out of a grocery store one evening and tripped on a raised sidewalk flag as she was attempting to hail a cab. Our investigation showed that the hazard existed for many years. New York City law requires most landlords and building owners to keep the sidewalks surrounding their property in a safe condition.
A four year old child fractured her shoulder in the playground of a Manhattan daycare center. In claiming a lack of supervision on the part of the daycare center and defective playground equipment allowed us to obtain a settlement for the child.
Car, Truck, Bus and Motor Vehicle Injuries
A woman walking across a local street in the crosswalk was struck by a van and knocked to the pavement. The van driver said he did not see her. The women underwent knee replacement surgery. The case settled during a pretrial conference.
A young man lawfully riding his bicycle on a Manhattan avenue, was struck by a bus and required nasal and shoulder surgeries. The bus driver claimed the bicycle rider rode into the bus but eyewitness testimony showed the bus driver was a fault.
