You suffered an injury because of a doctor's carelessness. You are now under the care of another doctor who is trying to improve your medical condition. This new doctor is known as a "subsequent treating doctor."
Chances are you have become comfortable with your new doctor. He or she understands the problems you went through and are focused on trying to get you better.
If you ultimately bring a lawsuit seeking compensation for the injuries you suffered because of the negligence and carelessness of a physician, you may naturally ask your treating doctor what he or she thinks.
That conversation is what prompts many injured victims to pick up the phone and call me. Did you know that most subsequent treating doctors do not want to become an expert for their patient.
Even though the new doctor has the the best intentions and wants to help you, most doctors do not want to participate in the lawsuit process.

Here's a cardiac malpractice case where I was able to achieve a $6 million dollar settlement for my client.
Here's a foot surgery case where a Westchester, NY jury awarded my client $1.55 million dollars for her pain and suffering.
