Doctors take an oath to do no harm to their patients. Yet bodily harm due to medical errors is an astonishingly common occurrence in America. In fact, statistics show that up to 440,000 people die as a result of medical malpractice, making it the third leading cause of death in the country, just behind heart disease and cancer.
That’s why Atty. Joseph Lichtenstein has dedicated his career to helping victims of medical error get the justice they deserve. What makes our firm different from others, though? Here are three key factors:
We’re Not Afraid of a Challenge
When you’re up against the unregulated and profit-driven healthcare industry, it’s hard to not feel disheartened. Never fear, though; our law firm is renowned for taking on even the most challenging cases. This year alone, we won two million-dollar lawsuits for clients who were initially turned down by other firms—one of them multiple times. If you know you’re in the right but no lawyer wants to represent you, let our law firm handle your case.
We Get You the Recompense You Deserve
Medical errors can have devastating consequences on your quality of life, which is why we strive to get the most generous settlement possible for your case. For instance, we won a $47 million verdict for a case wherein a medical practitioner failed to properly revive a child who went into cardiac arrest, causing the patient to suffer extensive brain damage. This settlement was the biggest payout for a medical malpractice suit in 2006.
Our Peers Recognize Our Achievement
We get a lot of praise from our clients, but our peers in the malpractice litigation industry hold us in high esteem as well. Take for example Atty. Ken Levine, who praised our work in overturning the “maternal forces of labor” defense that doctors use against brachial plexus injuries. Here’s what he said:
“Joe has consistently taken the lead on issues such as maternal forces and other related brachial plexus matters. His meticulous research and persuasive arguments have convinced judges to issue favorable rulings that others in our group have tried and failed to achieve. His work helps expose nonsense such as the maternal forces argument and helps us all fight for the injured children we represent.”
