Best Lawyers®, recognized as the oldest and most respected guide to the legal profession, has released the inaugural edition of a new publication, The Injury and Malpractice Issue.
The Injury and Malpractice Issue features attorneys “recognized for their top legal talent in injury and malpractice-related practice areas” in the 2021 editions of The Best Lawyers in America and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch.
The editor of The Injury and Malpractice Issue stated, “For the first time, Best Lawyers offers a consolidated guide geared to empower everyday people with the knowledge to make informed decisions and the resources to find the best legal representation when they need it.”
Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria earned the designation of “Top-Listed” by The Best Lawyers in America for three areas of practice: Medical Malpractice Law-Plaintiffs; Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs; and Product Liability Litigation-Plaintiffs. The “Top-Listed” distinction signifies that no other firm in Buffalo, NY has more attorneys listed in The Best Lawyers in America for each of those particular practice areas.
As noted in Business First’s article, vaccinations are currently a popular topic due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, legal issues regarding vaccine injuries have been around for decades.
Business First reporter Patrick Connelly stated that Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria has a practice to assist people who have had adverse reactions to standard vaccines. As Lynn Bochenek explained, “unlike a medical malpractice case where you can sue the pharmaceutical company or the person who administered the shot in court, with a vaccine you can’t.”
Attorneys Laraine Kelley and Joe Manna recently obtained a settlement valued at over $10,000,000 for a child injured at birth. The birth injury caused the child to suffer brain damage, which resulted in cerebral palsy (CP).
Settlement for Avoidable Cerebral Palsy
The settlement in this matter was negotiated with the hospital and obstetrician involved in the birth injury. Insurance carriers paid the settlement, recognizing that the child’s cerebral palsy injuries were caused by avoidable oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery.
Future Medical Expenses
As part of the settlement, the child’s future medical expenses, which were projected to be many millions of dollars, will be paid for by New York’s Medical Indemnity Fund (MIF). The MIF pays all medical expenses incurred by neurologically injured children if a court finds that they were injured at birth and directs that the child be covered by the program.
