    • In April of 2010, we helped a client obtain an $18-million dollar verdict against the Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark for delaying a C-section that would have prevented her grandnephew from developing cerebral palsy had it been performed earlier. The damages awarded in that case, totalling $16.5 million, helped our client pay for lifetime care for the person who was injured because of the defendants’ negligent medical care.
    • In July of 2007, we helped our client obtain a $14.7 million settlement against a local Mercedes dealership in Caldwell, NJ after he was struck by a vehicle in the defendant’s parking lot. Our client suffered significant economic losses caused by his inability to continue employment at a high-paying asset management firm and also required money for a life-care plan. This record setting settlement allowed our client to recover money which allowed him to have a future he deserves.
    • In 2017, we helped a young family obtain $4.5 million in damages for the wrongful death of their toddler whose malaria went undiagnosed by a Newark, NJ physician. The money was, in part, awarded for the substantial pain and suffering of our clients.
