How to Hire a New York Medical Malpractice Attorney


My goal to providing a great educational resource for injured victims in New York is to give you, the reader, tons of great information so you can learn about how cases like yours work here in NY.

My opinion has always been that the more informed and educated you are about the legal process, the better decisions you can make as you choose to proceed forward.

On my popular and educational website, I offer you four FREE books designed just for you. Just enter your info on the right side of the page and you get an immediate download of any of my four books.

I have thousands and thousands of relevant and timely articles to teach you about these injury and accident cases.

I have hundreds and hundreds of educational videos that help explain every aspect of medical malpractice and accident lawsuits in NY.

I have thousands of news items that will interest you along with actual pre-trial testimony in real cases I have handled that you can immediately read and learn from.

I have lots of useful content for you...all for free and BEFORE you ever pick up the phone to call.

No matter who you ultimately decide to hire for your accident or injury case, take the time to learn more and become educated about the legal process. That will allow you to make the most informed decisions you can possibly make.

    There is no lawyer in the country who informs and educates consumers about their rights in medical malpractice better than Gerry Oginski, Esq. Gerry provides a great service by dropping the shroud of secrecy and giving away all of his knowledge and the beneficiaries are his clients and consumers in general.
