Significant Settlements, Verdicts
and Appellate Decisions
During the past 5 years alone, and including only those matters where there have been recoveries in excess of $350,000, our NJ attorneys have obtained more than 320 million dollars in significant verdicts and settlements for our clients in cases of medical malpractice, product liability, wrongful death, wrongful birth, auto injuries, workplace accidents and other serious matters of personal injury. We have also secured tens of millions of dollars more in recoveries for hundreds of clients who have had less significant claims and injuries.
All of our New Jersey medical malpractice cases are carefully and meticulously screened by Blume Goldfaden's medical staff, and often by independent experts, prior to the institution of litigation . Suits are filed only after experts have affirmed that medical negligence caused serious injury or death (Affidavit of Merit). The settlements and verdicts posted on our website represent the culmination of years of effort that established medical negligence likely existed in our clients' care and treatment. Each verdict or settlement arose out of a failure in medical care, and we regret, as do our clients, how many medical errors kill or injure innocent patients. A recent study by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences estimated that as many as 98,000 patients may be killed each year in hospitals alone as a result of medical errors. However, we are proud that we have assisted our clients in holding healthcare providers accountable for their careless and negligent acts or omissions; as that is the best way to give doctors, nurses and hospitals an incentive to avoid such errors in the future.
Several of the cases indexed below set precedents for the amount and the type of injuries. If you have questions about any of these matters, please contact Blume Goldfaden by e-mail or by telephone.
