Expertise and Experience are the keys to the success of a Malpractice case.

Strauss Law Offices, LLC always represented victims of serious and life altering medical malpractice. Jeffrey Strauss received his college and graduate degrees in the life sciences and the Health Sciences receiving a Masters Degree in a Health Science with a sub specialty of Applied Anatomy and Physiology and was an assistant instructor of Anatomy while completing the degree. This makes him uniquely qualified as a lawyer to handle these cases. Most lawyers simply do not have this background and experience. We represent victims in all areas of medical malpractice including, but not limited to, obstetric malpractice (birth related injuries to child or mother), Nerve injuries such as Erb's palsy, wrongful birth, wrongful death, surgical negligence, neo-natal malpractice, orthopedic malpractice, neurosurgical malpractice, Lasik surgery, cataract surgery, ophthalmologic malpractice, failure to diagnose cancer and other disorders. If medical or surgical care went terribly wrong and you consider an experienced and successful medical malpractice lawyer you should consult Strauss Law Offices.

Medical malpractice cases are strongly defended and extremely difficult to litigate, and we are proud of our successful record in "doing the right thing" and obtaining significant verdicts and settlements for our clients. We have extensive experience in handling brain injury and head trauma cases including a substantial $3 million recovery in a recent New York medical malpractice case and continue to represent clients who have suffered from substantial medical malpractice injuries.

Medical malpractice causes devastating or even fatal injuries and it is more common than doctors or insurance companies would have you believe. Recent studies reported by the Institute of Medicine found that medical errors (medical malpractice) are responsible for up to 98,000 wrongful deaths each year, much more than twice the number of all Americans killed on all U.S. highways each year.

Almost 240,000 deaths occurred in a recent year from preventable medical errors but less than 39,000 received any compensation for the losses (2006 Annual Report of the National Practitioners Databank). Hundreds of thousands more are injured and disabled because of the medical malpractice of doctors, nurses and hospitals.

A recent National Public Quality of Care survey revealed that 34% of the public experienced preventable medical errors with 21% reporting serious consequences. The same survey noted that only 7% were informed by the doctor or health care professional and only 4% of the public actually pursued a case into litigation. Preventable medical errors and malpractice that cause serious injury or death continues to occur.

If you or a loved one has been seriously harmed by medical errors and malpractice then you should call to discuss the matter to find out if there is a justified potential claim. When medical malpractice happens, most people think the responsible parties should be held accountable. Unfortunately, accountability in medical malpractice cases is often the last thing those responsible desire. As a result, in the absence of aggressive legal representation, many medical malpractice suits are buried without the patient ever knowing about the mistake, as well as anyone knowing of the people involved in the mistake. Patients are inherently vulnerable because they have no choice but to trust their healthcare provider or physician with their lives and health. Hospitals, nursing homes and other providers are trusted with the well being of their patients. This is, and should be, the basis for a special provider-patient relationship. There is no place for carelessness or ignorance on the part of healthcare providers. When negligence occurs the provider must be held accountable for the injuries and losses that result.

As the statistics disclose, your doctors or medical providers are typically not going to disclose their acts of medical malpractice to you. If your doctors explain what happened at all, they say they "did the best they could" or that a death was "unavoidable." Maybe it was, or maybe it was not. You owe it to yourself and your family to know for sure. Injuries that result from the fault of another demand that responsibility be taken by the wrongdoer and fairness result.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, please contact Strauss Law Offices and we will contact you within twenty-four (24) hours to discuss your case.
