- Medical Malpractice Jury Verdict For Contraindicated Laser Eye Surgery
We represented a woman whose eyesight was seriously impaired as a result of contraindicated laser eye surgery. We were able to prove at trial that the surgery should never have been performed and obtained a large judgment for our client.
- Medical Malpractice Failure to Diagnose Blocked Carotid Artery
We represented a man who suffered a severe stroke resulting in partial paralysis and impairment of both speech and physical capabilities. Our client had visited his internist physician and complained of temporary loss of vision after being in bright sunlight. Before seeing his internist he had consulted an ophthalmologist who did not find any permanent limitation of vision. However, she recommended that our client’s internist perform a series of tests to ascertain whether he had suffered a temporary ischemic attack. Notwithstanding the recommendations of the ophthalmologist, our client’s internist did not perform any of the recommended tests.
Shortly after being examined by his internist, our client suffered a massive stroke and it was subsequently determined that his carotid artery was almost entirely blocked. This blockage of the carotid artery would almost certainly have been discovered had the appropriate tests been performed. After extensive discovery, the case was settled before trial for a very substantial six figure amount.
- Slip and Fall in Apartment
We represented a woman who suffered serious shoulder injury when she fell in her apartment due to the faulty installation of new flooring. After extensive discovery and depositions we were able to obtain a just settlement.

We represented a woman who suffered long-lasting injury when she fell while riding in an elevator. We were able to obtain a substantial settlement.
- Personal Injury Due to Negligently Performed Lasik Surgery
We have represented a number of individuals who suffered impairment of vision after undergoing a Lasik correction procedure. Lasik is a procedure which corrects and improves an individual’s vision with the use of a laser to alter the shape of a patient’s cornea. While most individuals are good candidates for Lasik, there are certain contraindications which, if ignored, can result in deteriorated vision and other complications. We have successfully represented a number of injured former Lasik patients and achieved a number of successful settlements, as well as a jury verdict in favor of one of our clients.
- Automobile Accident
We represented an individual who was injured in an automobile collision in the Bronx. We were able to show that the accident had been caused by the other driver’s carelessness and settled the case for the limit of the insurance policy.
- Personal Injury Sustained By Moped Rider Struck By Car
We represented a young man who sustained serious injury when he was struck by a car while riding a moped in Manhattan. We were able to show that the accident had been caused by the negligence of the defendant driver and obtained a very large settlement for our client. This recovery was important not only because our client obtained substantial six figure compensation for his injuries, but also because, as a moped rider, he was not eligible to recover No Fault benefits to pay for his considerable medical expenses.
- Pedestrian Struck By Car
We represented an individual who suffered personal injury when he was struck by a motor vehicle while crossing the street. The case resulted in the recovery of substantial compensation for our client.
