Proven Results in Medical Malpractice Claims
Steve Seidman has practiced law since 1981, and opened a solo practice 20 years ago. With associate Christopher Freeman, the Seidman Law Offices has obtained many large settlements and verdicts in medical malpractice cases. Our success stories include a $5 million settlement for the benefit of the family of a permanently injured child, and settlements of $1.9 million and $1.6 million in wrongful deaths stemming from malpractice.
We handle all types of medical malpractice claims:
Failure to diagnose – Emergency room staff or family doctors overlook telltale signs of cancer or other issues, or fail to follow up on patient complaints.
Birth injuries – Infants die or suffer severe brain injury due to lack of oxygen if the physician fails to order a Caesarian birth (C-section) in time, or due to insufficient monitoring of the fetus or newborn. Cerebral palsy and erb’s palsy are lifelong disabilities resulting from birth injury.
Surgery errors – Surgeons operate on the wrong leg or wrong disc, or accidentally sever an artery or nerve, causing paralysis, disability, life-threatening injury, or death.
Prescription errors – Doctors order the wrong medication, or more commonly the pharmacist fills the prescription improperly, causing injury.
Nursing home negligence – Residents of nursing homes are injured in falls due to lack of restraints or proper support, or patients suffer injury or death through neglect or intentional acts.
Expert Testimony – We Get the Best
Proving medical malpractice or medical negligence requires very good experts who can testify that the hospital or physician failed to provide the standard of care or made a mistake that caused the injury. Seidman Law Offices spares no expense in proving liability on the part of the care providers.
