When bringing a lawsuit for injuries you suffered because of an accident or improper medical care in New York, did you know that there's a good chance the defense attorney and his insurance company will hire a private investigator to catch you on video?
"Doing what?" you ask.
Doing what you say you can't do, of course.
Let's say you give pre-trial testimony that you are unable to play basketball because of your injuries. Or maybe you claim you can't ski or paint or do other types of sports or physical activities.
Not only will you have destroyed your credibility, but you may have also opened yourself up to a perjury charge for testifying falsely.
There are some instances where the surveillance video doesn't tell the whole story. For example...if you claim you walk with a cane sometimes and other times you don't.
Another example is when the video fails to show you in excruciating pain following your attempts to do those activities which you were unable to do then but are trying to do now.
Watch the video to learn more...
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.
To learn more about how medical malpractice cases work in the state of New York, I encourage you to explore my educational website.
If you have legal questions, I invite you to pick up the phone and call me at 516-487-8207 or by email at email@example.com. This is what I do every day and I'd be happy to chat with you.
