THE PRINCIPAL FOCUS OF OUR PRACTICE IS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
Medical malpractice is a highly complex and specific field; it requires a high level of technical understanding of both law and medicine. We concentrate explicitly on medical malpractice actions. And we only represent plaintiffs; we do not compromise ourselves or our clients by also representing doctors, hospitals or insurance carriers. We believe that by devoting ourselves to this one, important practice area we have developed an understanding of the field that is unsurpassed.
WE HAVE RECOVERED OVER $100 MILLION FOR OUR CLIENTS
We are extremely proud of the consistently successful results we have obtained for our clients. The recoveries we have obtained for our clients exceed $100 million. In addition, we obtained a jury verdict of $20 million in 2010, one of the largest ever awarded in a New York medical malpractice case. This verdict was chosen for inclusion in the Verdicts and Settlements Hall of Fame. Although every case is different and past results are no guarantee of any future outcome, we are extremely proud of the results we have achieved. For a more detailed list of the verdicts and settlements our clients have received, go to the Case Results page.
WE HAVE OVER 30 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Sam Rosmarin, the firm’s principal attorney, has been handling medical malpractice cases for over 30 years. He is extremely familiar with the judges, defense attorneys, insurance companies, experts and other parties likely to be involved on the other side of the case. Over the years, he has cultivated relationships with the medical experts that are critical to prosecuting a successful medical malpractice action. He is also familiar with many of the experts likely to be called upon by defendants. Although the firm handles only plaintiffs’ medical malpractice claims, Sam spent 15 years representing doctors, hospitals and other defendants. This experience gives him a unique perspective. Having represented defendants, he fully understands their strategies and motivations.
WE GIVE YOU REAL PERSONAL ATTENTION
Although our firm has all the resources you will need to prosecute your claim, it is also small enough to make sure that you receive the kind of caring, sympathetic attention that you and/or your loved ones deserve. You will not just be a file number and a case name. Look at some of our Client Testimonials and you will see what we mean. All cases receive the direct personal attention of Sam Rosmarin, one of New York’s finest medical malpractice attorneys. Sam will either handle your case himself or actively work with the attorney with primary responsibility for your case, regardless of the size of your claim.
YOU PAY US NOTHING UNLESS YOU RECEIVE A RECOVERY
We work on a contingent fee basis. This means that you pay us a percentage of the amount you finally recover. You will not have to advance any funds for costs and expenses. Although these are repaid from any monies you ultimately recover, if you do not receive a recovery, you are not responsible for these expenditures. And, of course, we do not charge for the initial consultation; you can come in and talk to us about your claim without any obligation.
WE DON’T PASS YOUR CASE ALONG TO ANOTHER LAW FIRM
Some firms that claim to be experts or specialists at certain types of cases, including medical malpractice cases, really aren’t. They are just clearinghouses; they refer your case to another firm in order to receive a referral fee. For some other firms, medical malpractice is just one small part of their practice; they handle auto accidents, slip and fall cases and other types of personal injury cases. We have dedicated ourselves to representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases. In fact, some of New York’s leading personal injury law firms refer their medical malpractice cases to us! We will handle your case ourselves and give it the direct attention it deserves. Just look at some of our Client Testimonials to see what we mean.
WE ARE A FULLY STAFFED FIRM WITH ALL THE RESOURCES YOU WILL NEED
In addition to our staff of attorneys and paralegals, we work with a wide range of experts who will help us to make your case. Our years of experience have enabled us to assemble teams of investigators, physicians who are experts in their fields, economics experts, accountants, and others, all of whom have worked on medical malpractice cases for many years. And you advance no funds to hire these experts. We pay them and their fees only come out of any recovery you obtain.
WE WELCOME CLIENTS OF ALL BACKGROUNDS
We do not believe that economic status, country of origin or preferred language should ever be barriers to justice. We firmly believe that everyone is entitled to the best possible legal representation. We welcome those who speak Spanish and have Spanish speaking staff available to help them. All clients are welcome and we make sure that all find us easy to communicate with. We pride ourselves on having a firm atmosphere that is comfortable and welcoming to all.
WE WILL COME TO YOU
We fully understand that circumstances don’t always allow you to come to our offices to meet, or that you may not be able to meet during regular business hours. It’s not a problem. We regularly meet with our clients and prospective clients at their homes, in hospitals, nursing homes and rehab facilities and elsewhere, and we can meet with you at a time that is convenient for you. It’s all part making sure that we provide you with the highest level of personalized service possible.
WE LIMIT THE NUMBER OF CASES WE HANDLE
In order for us to give each case the time and attention it deserves and requires, we intentionally limit the number of cases we accept. If we take your case, it should indicate to you our belief in your claim and our commitment to you. We do not merely handle cases – we represent real people with real problems on an individual basis.
OUR JOB DOESN’T END WHEN YOU RECEIVE PAYMENT
We view our job as more than just getting you the best recovery possible. We are here to make sure that you are able to use your recovery to ensure financial stability for the rest of your life. If you need, we will help you set up trusts and escrows, and help you make other financial arrangements to safeguard the funds you receive. It is all part of making sure that all our clients’ needs are taken care of.
Every case is unique. Prior case results are not indicative of any future outcome.
