Since its inception, the firm has successfully handled medical
malpractice cases. This firm has
favorably settled, or tried to verdict, cases involving the negligence of the
following: obstetricians, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, pediatric
geneticists, radiologists, plastic surgeons as well as countless other
physicians, medical professional associations, clinics and hospitals. The firm's
use of trial presentation technology has also been critical to its great
results in these cases. The firm's ability to digitally enhance
demonstrative exhibits such as x-rays and medical reports depicting injuries,
to impeach witnesses using deposition testimony and to convey the extent of
suffering using day-in-the-life videos has all been invaluable. Using this technology allows the fact
finder to visualize and understand the extent of the subject injury or tragedy.
Similarly, the firm has successfully handled nursing home
negligence matters and cases against similar care facilities for the elderly
and developmentally disabled. These claims almost always involve neglect in the care and treatment
thereby resulting in decubitus ulcers, wandering from the facility,
malnutrition, and/or violent attacks by other residents and/or staff at the
given facility. Our lawyers have
become so familiar with the medical record keeping and policies and procedures
at these facilities that fraudulent record keeping, as evidenced by substantive
changes made in a resident's
chart long after the subject injury or tragedy, is often detected. Uncovering unlawful record changes
and/or recognizing and promptly exposing a facility's
forged documents has promptly led to the resolution of several cases.
