Gerry's Educational Medical Malpractice Website
New York Medical Malpractice Trial Attorney
She called on a Friday. Her time limit to start a medical malpractice lawsuit in New York would run out on Wednesday. She wanted me to start her lawsuit immediately!
She told me she had an "Excellent case." It was a "Guaranteed winner," she said. She needed to protect her rights in order to go forward with her "valid" lawsuit.
I had to tell her the reality.
I had to explain to her that there was no way I could possibly help her. There was no way I could possibly evaluate her detailed medical malpractice matter in only a few days.
She did not have any of her medical records. I needed to obtain at least 10 different doctors and hospital records. That takes months. Then, once I obtained all of her records I would have to go through every single page of every single record.
Only after I gathered all of her medical records and have thoroughly reviewed them, can I send them out to a qualified medical expert to review. The expert, assuming he is available, will then take a significant amount of time to thoroughly evaluate all of your medical records.
I explained to her that it was physically impossible to do a full, thorough and complete investigation in only a few days time.
She was adamant. She wanted her lawsuit filed immediately!
I explained again that the law in NY requires that we have confirmation by a medical expert before we are permitted to file a lawsuit on her behalf.

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.
