Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
New York Medical Malpractice Attorney Sanford Rubenstein of Law Offices of Rubenstein & Rynecki announced today that he won a $17.9M settlement on behalf of Tabitha Mullings in a “Quadruple Amputee and Legally Blind” case.
New York medical malpractice lawyer Sanford Rubenstein represented Tabitha Mullings v. City of New York, Brooklyn Hospital (TDocket# 6162/09). A Brooklyn mother whose hands and feet were amputated in a shocking medical nightmare has won a $17.9 million settlement from the city and a hospital. According to court documents, Mullings’ tale of horror began in September 2008 when she went to the Brooklyn Hospital Center emergency room and was sent home with the diagnosis of a kidney stone and some painkillers. The next day Mullings was beset by agonizing pain and numbness and called 911 twice. FDNY medics did not take her back to the hospital.
Attorney Sanford Rubenstein stated, "This is a fair and reasonable resolution of this matter. Justice has been done. This settlement demonstrates that our legal system works for victims and should not be tampered with."
Attorney Ira Newman States, "While Ms. Mullings cannot turn back the clock, she is grateful she has been fairly compensated, and can now obtain the care and support she requires for the rest of her life."
