We rely completely on the doctor’s experience and expertise to protect us in times of need. Unfortunately, doctors and hospitals are sometimes negligent in their care of patients, and as a result people can suffer terrible injuries, or even die.
Prominent nationally known attorneys have recently descibed Mr. Lichtenstein's work as follows:
"Joe has consistently taken the lead on issues such as maternal forces 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.Thank you Joe. We appreciate your hard work and tireless effort to expose the lies, half truths and junk. I am sure I speak for all of us when I say thank you for allowing us to ride on the coat tails of your fine work."
Hiring a skilled and experienced medical malpractice allows individuals and family members to investigate whether the physician's conduct was negligent,. and if it was, to obtain not only justice, but also to seek financial compensation for their losses.
The doctors and hospitals hire large firms with highly expereinced and aggressive attorneys, and they fight these cases tooth and nail. The importance of the victims of malpractice also hiring an attorney with years of experience and a proven track record cannot be overstated. It can mean the difference between obtaining a sizable verdict or settlement, or receiving no compensation at all.
