In 2012 alone, $3.6 billion were paid out to settle medical malpractice cases—a testament to the prevalence of errors in the healthcare industry. At The Law Offices of Joseph M. Lichtenstein, we take pride in helping victims of negligent medical practitioners get the recompense they need and deserve.
With over 70 years of combined legal experience, our team has won countless medical malpractice lawsuits, and our attorneys have been instrumental in the awarding of multi-million dollar settlements. Given our excellent track record, our colleagues in the field have expressed their admiration for the work we do. For instance, Atty. Ken Levine, himself a respected medical malpractice lawyer, had this to say of Atty. Lichtenstein:
Thank you Joe. We appreciate your hard work and tireless effort to expose the lies, half-truths and junk. I am sure I speak for all of us when I say thank you for allowing us to ride on the coat tails of your fine work.
Clients, too, have extended their praise and gratitude to our firm, especially those who were turned away by other law firms. The statement below was given by a recent client whose case we settled for over a million dollars:
At the time we retained Mr. Lichtenstein we had nearly given up finding an attorney to prosecute this case. 3 major firms had turned us down. Each rejection made us feel more defeated and hopeless. I was so deeply grateful to Mr. Lichtenstein for agreeing to take the case, and for working so hard to make it so successful.
As you can see, our firm often provides hope to victims who struggle to find lawyers willing to represent their cases. In 2012, for example, Atty. Lichtenstein made history with the Muhammad v. Fitzpatrick case when he successfully discredited the 20-year-old “maternal forces of labor” defense against brachial plexus injuries. Through his expertise, he proved that such injuries are, indeed, caused by medical negligence and are not sustained as a result of the natural birthing process.
Patients seek medical care to recover from their ailments, but far too often, their conditions are exacerbated by negligent doctors and nurses. If you’ve suffered the same fate, contact our office immediately.
