Today's video involves a gentleman who was working as a laborer who went to go buy supplies to fix up a home. Something got into his eye and despite washing it out, he continued to have pain and tearing.
He was taken by ambulance to a local emergency room here in New York and was seen and examined by a white coated woman who proclaimed she was a "doctor." The patient had specifically asked for an eye doctor and she reassured him that she knew what she was doing.
She examined him and came to the conclusion that he just had a scratched cornea and all would be fine. She handed him some eye drops and told him he could follow up with an eye doctor in a few days if his condition got worse.
He called the eye doctor and two days after his accident was sitting in the eye doctor's office and these were the words he heard: "Sir, you have a hole in your eye. You need surgery immediately."
He responded, "What do you mean I have a hole in my eye? I was told I only have a scratch on my cornea!"

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.
