$2,885,000 Medical Malpractice

August 1st, 2017 Results,Uncategorized

Our client, in her late 30’s, had undergone surgery for the relief of back pain. The surgeon damaged a bundle of nerves, unnecessarily taking a biopsy in the mistaken belief that she may have had a tumor. After the operation, the patient developed Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy with chronic pain and deteriorating use of her leg. She underwent a below the knee amputation. She has resumed a relatively normal life with a prosthesis. After a long and protracted defense, the case settled before opening statements.

While getting a routine medical procedure, things took a turn for the worst and I suffered extreme losses.  Several friends suggested I hire a lawyer to pursue my case.  I turned to several lawyers for advice.  Nobody gave my case a shot except for Steven Hymowitz.

While discussing my case with Steven, I immediately recognized his vast knowledge of the medical field.  He is smart, understanding, and most importantly, optimistic.  He brought a much-needed wave of hope to my family, and I could not be more thankful.  Throughout the entire progression of my case, Steven always patiently kept me informed and consistently provided thoughtful guidance.  The staff at Fellows Hymowitz was also extremely professional and friendly.

Despite the opinions of the lawyers I met with before going to Fellows Hymowitz, Steven was able to negotiate a settlement that greatly exceeded my expectations.  With Steven’s help, I was able to recover my losses and am continuing on a track to better health.  Thank you Steven and everyone at Fellows Hymowitz!
