Jaroslawicz & Jaros was successful in a medical malpractice case in Artale v. Thorpe, 03 Civ. 4028 (JSR) United States District Court for the Southern District of NY. The Court found that in asserting medical malpractice, the patient sufficiently stated that because of an improper diagnosis and stent placement, she was required to undergo frequent tests, examinations, and monitoring, at an increased cost and emotional distress.

David Jaroslawicz of Jaroslawicz & Jaros wrote the brief and argued before the highest court in the State of New York, the New York Court of Appeals that helped to develop the law concerning infants and the statute of limitations for a medical malpractice action in the case of Daniel J. v. New York City Health & Hosp. Corp., Court of Appeals of New York, 77 N.Y.2d 630; 569 N.Y.S.2d 396. The court found that the statute of limitations for a medical malpractice action provided that where the action accrued during infancy, the extension was limited to 10 years from the time of accrual, and not from the end of the infant’s continuous treatment.

David Jaroslawicz of Jaroslawicz & Jaros also wrote the brief and developed the law of the statute of limitations in the case of Daniel J. v. New York City Health & Hosp. Corp., No. 3422E, Supreme Court of New York, Appellate Division, Second Department, 160 A.D.2d 940; 554 N.Y.S.2d 663. The court found that the Supreme Court did not err in allowing the infant petitioner to file a late notice of claim against the hospital where the maximum 10-year toll for infancy had not elapsed because the application was submitted within 10 years after his last treatment.

David Jaroslawicz of Jaroslawicz & Jaros wrote the brief and argued before the highest court in the State of New York, the New York Court of Appeals that helped develop the law in the case of, Caffaro v. Trayna, Court of Appeals of New York, 35 N.Y.2d 245; 360 N.Y.S.2d 847. The Court found that in a medical malpractice action for pain and suffering, an amendment to the complaint to add a cause of action for wrongful death was allowed despite the expiration of the limitations period because the amendment related back to the date of the complaint.

The firm of Jaroslawicz & Jaros is presently representing many persons who have suffered injuries as a result of the negligence of both doctors, nurses and hospitals under various and diverse circumstances.

Gastric Bypass and Lap Band Procedure Malpractice

The attorneys at Jaroslawicz & Jaros have handled many cases involving persons who suffered serious injuries and complications, including death, after having gastric bypass surgery performed. Obesity is a serious issue in the United States and gastric bypass surgery is becoming ever more popular. Unfortunately, many doctors who are performing this surgery do not have the necessary experience and training to avoid and diagnose surgical and post-surgical complications

Because Medical Malpractice litigation requires that multiple experts be retained to properly support the case, including medical professionals as experts to prove liability, who would be persons with expertise as to the proper medical treatment that should have been provided, as well as doctors, rehabilitation experts, and economists, who can explain the severity and extent of the injury and your loss of earnings and future earning capacity to the court and a jury, it is important to retain a law firm that has the experience in the field as well as the financial ability to retain the proper experts to both consult with and to testify on your behalf should your case proceed to trial.
