Update From Joseph M. Lichtenstein

I had the good fortune, just before Thanksgiving 2016, of having won my second large verdict this year.

In May 2016, I won a $9,315,000.00 verdict on behalf of a young boy who suffered deafness and brain damage because of a failure to work him up for a bacterial illness when he presented to the hospital ER, after days of a high fever, and now having a seizure at home. They sent him home without a single test being done. He ended up with meningitis.

In November 2016, I won a $4,000,000.00 verdict in Buffalo New York on behalf of a 44 year old man who suffered from Cauda Equina Syndrome due to a post-operative abscess. Because of the failure to treat him when his wife called up and told the doctor he had suddenly become incontinent, after having just been discharged from the hospital with severe back and leg pain, leg weakness, leg numbness and fever, he has forever lost control over his bowels and bladder, and has lost all sexual function. He also has excruciating pain in his legs for the rest of his life.

I'd like to think that we are doing some good in helping these unfortunate victims to have a better quality of life.

Hear What Others Are Saying About Us ...

“Joe has consistently taken the lead on issues such as maternal forces and other related brachial plexus matters. His meticulous research and persuasive arguments have convinced judges to issue favorable rulings that others in our group have tried and failed to achieve. His work helps expose nonsense such as the maternal forces argument and helps us all fight for the injured children we represent.

Thank you Joe. We appreciate your hard work and tireless effort to expose the lies, half truths and junk. I am sure I speak for all of us when I say thank you for allowing us to ride on the coat tails of your fine work.”

Client Testimonials

“Just a little note of thanks to tell you just how very much your business with us has meant. Words cannot describe how thankful I am for such a great job you and your staff has done. I wish you great success in every case you handle.”

Ms. Hines, client

“At the time we retained Mr. Lichtenstein we had nearly given up finding an attorney to prosecute this case. 3 major firms had turned us down. Each rejection made us feel more defeated and hopeless. I was so deeply grateful to Mr. Lichtenstein for agreeing to take the case, and for working so hard to make it so successful.”

As stated by a recent client in Court papers for a case that settled for over a million dollars
