Gerry's Educational Medical Malpractice Website
NY Medical Malpractice Trial Attorney Gerry Oginski Lectures to 60 Attorneys at NYC Bar Association, Bridge the Gap program.
A bridge-the-gap program at the New York City Bar Association is a great way for lawyers of all different specialties to obtain continuing legal education credit in topics that they typically would not learn about.
For years now I have been privileged to be asked to speak at the New York City Bar Association on the topic of medical malpractice in NY. This fall, I had the chance to speak to 60 lawyers who joined me as I discussed the importance of learning about medical malpractice law and how it impacts these lawyers directly even though they do not handle this specialty of law.
As you go through the video you will notice recurring themes involving medical malpractice law in New York.
THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS...
Some of the key issues I discuss in this lecture involve the time limit in which an injured victim has to bring a lawsuit.
WARNING...you cannot and should not rely on the time-limit information to start a lawsuit provided in this video!!
Because the time limits that I discuss in this video are for the benefit of the attorneys are only good as of the date I discussed them.
You should never rely on information you find online about the time limits in which you have to bring a lawsuit in New York for medical malpractice. There are many different time limits for different scenarios; for adults, for children, for private hospitals, private physicians, municipal hospitals and more.
That is why it is so important that if you believe you might have a valid medical malpractice case, you pick up the phone and speak to an experienced attorney immediately so that you will know definitively whether or not your matter is timely.
NEVER RELY ON INFORMATION YOU FIND ONLINE OR IN A VIDEO ABOUT YOUR TIME LIMIT TO FILE A LAWSUIT ON YOUR BEHALF!
Since all of the attorneys in the audience were not practicing medical malpractice attorneys, this discussion was useful for them to understand how medical malpractice law could apply in their daily practice involving real estate law, transactional law, securities law, as general counsel for a corporation, and many other legal specialties that were represented there that day.
The discussion lasted an hour and a half and provided these lawyers with interesting stories and useful information about how medical malpractice lawsuits work here in the state of New York.
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.
