Defective Pacemaker Attorneys

Pacemakers are a group of cells that create electric impulses responsible for controlling the rhythmic beating of your heart. However, these cells can be rendered ineffective if the heart undergoes some type of severe trauma, like a heart attack.Artificial pacemakers, designed to aid those who have experienced such trauma, are medical devices that are surgically implanted to stimulate the heart when pacemaker cells are unable to do so. They have been proven effective in treating people suffering from a variety of heart conditions.However, when these pacemakers fail the results are often fatal.

Common Problems With These Pacemakers

Premature battery depletion.

Inappropriate pacing function.
Appearance of a reset warning.
Inappropriate early display of replacement indicators.

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!!!
