Buffalo Business First Discusses Vaccine Injury Compensation with Attorney Lynn Bochenek

Attorney Lynn Bochenek was recently featured in an article published by Buffalo Business First regarding Vaccine Injury Compensation.

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.

Failure to Diagnose Breathing Problem Results In Structured Settlement of Over $1,000,000

Attorneys Joseph Manna and Lynn Bochenek recently obtained a structured settlement of over 1,000,000 for their client against a hospital that failed to diagnose and treat an intubation problem, which caused the death of a father. The patient had been intubated after sustaining non-life threatening burns in a house fire. He was rushed to a hospital where he was recovering while intubated.

What is Intubation?

Intubation is the use of a breathing tube to deliver oxygen to a patient’s lungs. Many times, a patient’s natural breathing is suppressed with medications in order to ventilate the patient more comfortably and efficiently. When this type of ventilation is done, the patient is unable to breath on their own and healthcare providers must be careful that there are no problems with the breathing tube. If problems with the intubation tube arise, they must be addressed immediately so that the patient is not deprived of life giving oxygen.
