Medical Malpractice Lawyers New York Land Largest Settlement Against Hospital

Medical Malpractice LawyerWhen it comes to medical malpractice lawyers, New York may have some of the best. This is especially apparent in a recent incident where a mother of two children went in to the hospital for a treatment for a seizure and never left. $120 Million Award.
Our medical malpractice lawyers in New York know that people suffer at the hands of others and deserve compensation. A jury in the Bronx awarded an incapacitated woman $120 million on May 22, 2012. The State Supreme Court jury awarded the settlement to the woman, who had been incapacitated since 2004.
Jacqueline Martin, now 45, visited three area hospitals during February of 2004. During the span of a month, reports the New York Times, Martin went into the hospital for treatment for a seizure. During that time, the medical personnel mismanaged medications, did not respond fast enough to crises, and did not provide essential treatment. During this time, she had an allergic reaction to an anti-seizure medication.
Later, she was diagnosed with a condition known as Stevens-Johnson syndrome. The condition is a rare type of skin disorder that often leads to very severe conditions.

Appointing Blame

In the ruling, the court appointed blame as follows:

  •  50 percent of the blame went to Jacobi Medical Center located in the Bronx.
  •  40 percent of the blame went to Kings County Hospital Center located in Brooklyn.
  • Another 5 percent of the blame went to Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center.
  • 4 percent went to one of the hospital’s neurologists.
  • The final one percent was appointed as the responsibility of Ms. Martin herself.

When facing situations like this, legal help is necessary. Medical malpractice lawyers in New York can help you to prove your case so you can receive the compensation you deserve.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
