Being informed for the first time that you have breast cancer is scary for anyone, man or woman. But when I found out that I had breast cancer in my first year of marriage, I was five months pregnant and told that I needed both a mastectomy and chemotherapy. I was terrified for myself, and for my unborn baby boy. My family’s future was at stake. But I couldn’t help but continuously think that my family doctor, who had found my breast lump 9 months earlier and told me it was a benign fibroma, was negligent in her diagnosis.

Terrified, confused and emotionally drained, I was referred to New York City Breast Cancer Lawyer, Michael Gunzburg, P.C.. After researching his background, I was struck by Michael Gunzburg, P.C.’s extensive experience representing women whose cancer went undiagnosed. He also had a high success rate with his failure to diagnose breast cancer medical malpractice cases. It was his experience and success rate that convinced my husband and I to select him as our NYC Breast Cancer Attorney. Looking back, I am thoroughly convinced that we made the right choice.

Michael Gunzburg, P.C.’s counsel as our New York City Breast Cancer Lawyer was remarkable. On our own, my husband and I felt overwhelmed by all the technical terms and legal jargon applicable to my case. However, from the very beginning, I was pleasantly surprised by how hard Michael Gunzburg, P.C. worked to actively involve us in the legal proceedings. Throughout my claim, Michael Gunzburg, P.C.’s assistance was very comprehensive, guiding us through the case and providing us legal advice every step of the way. On a personal note, he was also very compassionate and friendly. In fact, in one instance, he even met with us over the weekend so as to kindly respond to our pre-trial questions and concerns. With Michael Gunzburg, P.C.’s help, my husband and I better understood our rights as a patient and as a plaintiff in a medical malpractice lawsuit. I admit, recovering from my surgery, undergoing chemotherapy, pursuing a lawsuit, and struggling to raise a newborn all at once was both difficult and stressful, but with Michael Gunzburg, P.C., on our side, my husband and I were able to lay quite a few of our legal worries to rest.

Overall, Michael Gunzburg, P.C., as our New York City Breast Cancer Lawyer was very attentive to our requests and always had my best interests in mind. He helped my new family get through a very difficult time, and secured a multi-million dollar award for our case which we were both very satisfied with. In the end, his compassion for our situation, and the great results that he achieved really set him apart for us. We would highly recommend Michael Gunzburg, P.C., as a great advocate to represent you and your family.

One of the most memorable aspects of working with Michael Gunzburg, P.C. on my medical malpractice case was the frequency and level of communication he maintained with me. We spoke very often over the phone and by e-mail, and he quickly and ably answered whatever questions I had. Simply stated, the legal assistance doesn’t get any better than what was provided by Michael Gunzburg, P.C. We had a great rapport with one another, and throughout the legal proceedings, I was impressed time and time again by Michael Gunzburg, P.C.’s understanding of my situation, his legal knowledge and experience (including his incredible research skills and his access to useful resources which, in turn, secured the evidence that was necessary to prevail on my case), and his professionalism. To Michael Gunzburg, P.C., my case involved more than simply getting the job done; I am thankful that he was always there to respond to my needs. 

Although it took nearly four years to resolve my case, I was happy in the end. The most difficult thing I found was dealing with the anticipation, with the unknown of what was going to happen next. But the wait was well worth it, for I ultimately came away with the realization that my injuries were a result of my former doctor’s indifference. The doctor was too tied up in his own health problems and financial issues to be concerned with my own unique medical problems. In hindsight, the fact that Michael Gunzburg, P.C. was able to show me that the doctor was negligent was great; however, the reason why the doctor was negligent turned out to be more important to me. Michael Gunzburg, P.C. helped me find peace-of-mind, and I would not trade this gift for the world.

To tell you the truth, I am generally wary of the NYC medical malpractice lawyers who practice in my residential area. In fact, I usually tell everyone where I live to never hire a local lawyer because my greatest fear is that the attorneys will sell out their clients. After my experience with Michael Gunzburg, P.C., however, I now have an example to disprove my former prejudice. Using my great outcome with him and the success that he achieved in my hard and long-fought case as reference, I can honestly say that Michael Gunzburg, P.C. was the best lawyer for me. I would recommend Michael Gunzburg, P.C. to any New Yorker who needs legal assistance.

When my daughter was born brain damaged with cerebral palsy and with a low Apgar score, we knew something had gone wrong in the delivery room. I thus decided to seek legal counsel, a search that led me to MICHAEL GUNZBURG, P.C. From the moment I dialed his number, I knew that I had made the right choice. In speaking to him over the phone for the very first time, I found that MICHAEL GUNZBURG, P.C.’s personal support and assistance were exceptional. He took the time to explain everything to us and guided my family through the legal process from start to finish. We came away from our case with total satisfaction; on both a professional and personal level, we felt that we had achieved with MICHAEL GUNZBURG, P.C.’s help the best possible outcome for my daughter. In sharp contrast to the lawyers that handled our guardianship issues following our medical malpractice case, we found that MICHAEL GUNZBURG, P.C. was comparatively more empathetic, understanding, and easy to work with.

I highly recommend MICHAEL GUNZBURG, P.C., as he is credible, understanding, and above all else, honest. He never BS-ed us or tried to talk his way out of a difficult situation, as some attorneys may occasionally try to do. On the contrary, when he felt that he was not able to handle certain aspects of our case, he confided in us his concerns and then secured the necessary expert assistance to ensure that we were receiving the help we needed. His candor only bolstered his credibility in our eyes. Also, he openly talked with me about the status of my family’s case without making me sit around, wait, and wonder what was going on. We always felt fully informed. Looking back, we are forever grateful to him because he gave us and, most importantly, my disabled daughter the financial independence her condition requires every single day of her life.

Since my daughter’s case, we have been using MICHAEL GUNZBURG, P.C. for almost 20 years now, and I can personally attest to the fact that I have seen him grow into one of the best NYC personal injury lawyers practicing today. I always recommend him to my family members and friends at work, and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending him to you.

Case Study: New York City Failure to Diagnose Vulva Cancer Lawyer

Gunzburg Law just settled a Failure to Diagnose Cancer of the Female Vulva – and with a successful outcome for our client.  The day on which jury selection was to commence, the parties negotiated a settlement agreement that will see Client receive $1.2 million from malpractice insurance policies with $2.3 million in combined coverage.

Settlement $1,200,000
Case Client v. Dr. P (M.D.) and OBGYN Group Practice
Court Richmond Supreme
Date 3/5/2012

Summary:

Plaintiff’s counsel argued that Dr. P’s negligent diagnosis had allowed Client’s cancer to spread to her lymph nodes, causing her staging to go from the second to the third stage. It was alleged that a more timely diagnosis would have prevented the necessity of treatments such as radical vulvectomy and radiation therapy.

The defense reasoned that there was no definitive medical proof that an earlier diagnosis would have made a difference with respect to either the treatment Client later received, or her ultimate prognosis.

The Truth About Tort Reform

With Repubs gearing up for the next election some of them, notably Rick Perry, are already talking about national tort reform. If Perry is elected he is likely to push for reforms much like those that exist in Texas.
