A laborer who was picking up building supplies got something in his eye.
He was taken by ambulance to an emergency room in NY and was seen and examined by a woman who told him she was a "doctor." The patient asked for an eye doctor and she reassured him that she was.
She came to the conclusion that he had a scratched cornea and would be fine. She handed him eye drops and told him to follow up with an eye doctor in a few days if his condition got worse.
His eye did get worse.
He saw the eye doctor two days after his accident. The patient was sitting in the eye doctor's office and the doctor told him "Did you know 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 scratched 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.
