New York, NY (PRWEB) March 1, 2010 -- New York Personal Injury Attorneys - Frekhtman and Associates (http://www.866attylaw.com) recovered $1.4 million in a medical malpractice case. The case involved an infant who lost his eyesight due to a failure to diagnose a brain tumor. The delay in diagnosis of a brain tumor was brief (around 4 months) from the onset of symptoms until the time when his pediatrician correctly diagnosed the condition. Due to this brief period, many medical experts said that there was no causation or that the blindness was not caused due to the failure to diagnose the condition in a timely fashion. Most doctors argued that even if the defendant in this case had correctly diagnosed the brain tumor four months earlier, the infant would still suffer the same injuries. This is a common argument and issue in medical malpractice cases.
Frekhtman & Associates working with their trial attorney were able to locate a medical expert to state that the brief delay was a substantial factor in bringing about the blindness. Prior to the trial, the parties negotiated a $1.4 Million Settlement which was approved by Brooklyn Supreme Court of the State of New York in an Infant’s Compromise Order.

Step 2: Get in contact with the New York City Department of Health and inquire about the earlier legal history of negligent medical service provider, hospital or any other medical authority. And, if there are many complaints registered against negligent doctor or medical authority then file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the negligent medical practitioner.
Step 3: Research the legal history of similar malpractice cases; Victims of Medical Malpractice within New York should get in touch with a New York medical malpractice attorney.
