How would one find an atty who has experience with med malpractice and deliberate indifference against NYC Dept of Correction?

Brooklyn, NY |

I have an a rather extensive case against NYC DOC for med malpractice and deliberate indifference (I had back surgery and foot fractures) as well as a few other people who were also incarcerated with me (from NIC and C76). I, and my friends, are all looking for someone with significant experience in this as we all have serious cases.

There are differences between medical malpractice claims and indifference claims. Medical malpractice claims fall under State law whie indifference claims generally fall under federal claims. I know an attorney who handles these type of inmate claims so feel free to contact me directly if you want a referral.
