What is a Certificate of Merit in a NY Medical Malpractice Case? Attorne...



Oginski-Law.com

A certificate of merit is document I must fill out in order to let the court know that I have consulted with a board-certified physician. This document lets the court know that my medical expert believes there is a valid and meritorious case.

Importantly, my medical expert must confirm that there was wrongdoing, the wrongdoing caused injury and that the injury is significant or permanent.

Some people mistakenly believe that the physician must sign an affidavit confirming there is a valid and meritorious case. This is not true in New York. There is no requirement for a physician to sign such a document.

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.

How Speed, Time & Distance Will Affect Your NY Car Accident Case; Attorn...



Oginski-Law.com

In a car accident case, I want to know the following three things from the driver who caused your accident:

SPEED
TIME
DISTANCE

Why are those things important?

These three items will help establish who is responsible for the accident. It will also help determine if the driver of the other car is believable.

"How far away from my client's car were you when you first saw him?"
"What was your speed at that time?"
"From the time you first saw my client's car, how much time went by until the accident happened?"

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.

Lawyer Achieves Multi-Million Dollar Verdict; How Much Did Client Actual...



Oginski-Law.com

You're searching for a New York attorney to represent you in your medical malpractice matter or your wrongful death case or maybe your car accident case. You find lawyer websites that proclaimed to have achieved stunning results in past cases.

Here's one question you need to ask every lawyer who proclaims that they have achieved remarkable and stunning verdicts:

"How much money did the client actually walk away with?"

Why is that important?

The reality is that after a really large verdict the defense lawyer will ask the trial judge to throw out the verdict or reduce it. Regardless of what the trial judge does, the defense lawyer will likely appeal the verdict and the judge's post-trial decision.

During an appeal, the case could be settled. Often in an attempt to save time, energy, resources and the possibility that the decision could be upheld, the parties to the lawsuit often enter into settlement discussions.

That's why when you see an attorney advertise that they achieved a stunning verdict, ask how much money the client actually walked away with. You'll often be surprised with the ultimate result.

Watch the video to learn more.

New York Medical Malpractice: 1 Question To Ask Every Lawyer



Oginski-Law.com

Searching for lawyer to represent you in your New York medical malpractice, accident case, negligence case or wrongful death case can be daunting.

One question you should be asking every lawyer: "Who is going to be handling my case throughout the course of the litigation?"

If you do not ask this question, you may be surprised the first time you pick up the phone and call the law firm asking to speak to the attorney who you initially met with on the day you signed your retainer.

You may be shocked to learn that the lawyer that you met with is not the one who handles the day-to-day details of your case.

It would be helpful for you to know who is the attorney who is going to represent you at your deposition or more formally known as an examination before trial.

You might also be thinking that the lawyer who represents you at your deposition is going to be the lawyer who handles your trial.

You might be shocked again to learn that the lawyer who's going to handle your trial may be different than the first lawyer you met or the lawyer who handles your case on daily basis or even the lawyer who represented you at your deposition.

Watch the video to learn more.

Why Would an Attorney Call for a Mistrial & What Does That Mean? Malprac...



Oginski-Law.com

New York medical malpractice and personal injury trial attorney Gerry Oginski talks about what a mistrial is and why an attorney would ask for a mistrial.

The last thing you want to hear when going through a trial is that you have to do it over again.

Trials take a lot of time, effort, and resources. It's a long process. But sometimes a mistake is made in the trial and it needs to be redone. This is not a common occurrence as much as you hear it on television.

Retrials cost money and time. There must be a good reason to declare a mistrial. Maybe the jury heard something that cannot be recovered from, they're now tainted.

Maybe the jury can't make a decision and are deadlocked. There are several reasons why a mistrial can be called, but those are the two most common. The decision for a mistrial must be given by a judge and all the factors -- money and time of all parties -- are considered when agreeing to another trial proceeding.

Watch the video now 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.

Sir, There's a Hole In Your Eye! "How Could That Be?"; NY Medical Malpra...


Oginski-Law.com

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.

Kidney Donor Transplant Death at Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY; S...



Oginski-Law.com

A sister agreed to donate her kidney to her brother at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. As they were getting her ready to harvest the kidney, her aorta was cut. The sister bled to death before the team had an opportunity to remove the kidney and transplant it into her brother.

Just a tragedy.

The key question in a case like this is whether cutting the aorta during the course of harvesting the donor's kidney is a known recognized risk of the procedure.

The key question is often whether the surgeon is able to timely recognize, diagnose and treat such a dramatic problem.

Since the aorta is the largest blood vessel in the body, there is the potential the patient will bleed to death if this condition is not immediately recognized or if the damage is originally so severe that it cannot be repaired.

The news reports reflect that the patient did in fact bleed to death before the kidney was harvested.

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.
