When a person is injured under the care of a medical facility, a doctor or other care giver, it is very hard to understand and deal with. The truth is, in society individuals and professionals must act responsibly and with a generally acceptable standard. This gives all citizens in a society a societal standard of behavior.

$4.3 Million obtained for a 4-year-old child and his parents from Turkey
The child came to a well-known hospital in New York City from his native country of Turkey for diagnostic testing. As a result of the test he sustained severe brain injuries due to lack of oxygen while under anesthesia. The unique part of this case is that the child and parents were here on a visitor's visa and spoke almost no English. We obtained extensions on their visa status and while the child remained in the hospital for over one year, the parents were given living accommodations, food allowances and were sent to school to learn English. These items were in addition to the money settlement.

$1.475 Million awarded to Manhattan woman pinned against the rear bumper of her car as she was unloading the trunk
The lawsuit is an excellent example of the importance of having sufficient insurance. The plaintiff suffered a partial severance of her leg below the knee. Fortunately the expert medical care that she received saved her leg and she now has complete mobility, but horrific scarring. The offending car had only $100,000 in insurance which was promptly tendered. The plaintiff carried under-insurance of $1.5 Million. The under-insurance company was entitled to a set off for the first $100,000 from the offending car, and then added $1.375 million of its own. Under-Insurance is an inexpensive item on your total auto insurance bill and should be purchased for as much as you can possibly afford. Please see "Automobile Insurance".
