Accomplished Connecticut Medical Malpractice Lawyers
"As to diseases, make a habit of two things — to help, or at least, to do no harm." — Hippocrates
A leading Connecticut medical malpractice law firm, Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder is respected throughout the state and across the nation for its experience and success in medical malpractice claims, including those involving:
- Negligent medical treatment
- Cancer: delayed diagnosis, improper treatment
- Injuries from medical malpractice
- Misdiagnosis of illness, including heart attack, stroke and pulmonary embolism as well as radiological misdiagnosis
Not every bad medical outcome is caused by malpractice. But Koskoff has the experience, personnel and resources to identify those that are. Once a suit is instituted, we have a team of experienced, professional trial lawyers capable of proving your claim.
Investigation: Joel Lichtenstein, the attorney in charge of the malpractice investigation team, has more than 35 years of legal experience devoted exclusively to medical malpractice litigation. During this time he has personally reviewed more than 25,000 hospital records. Assisted by three nurse/paralegals, an extensive medical library, online support, and unique in-house databases of nationally known medical consultants, the team is fully equipped to review and investigate even the most complex medical cases.
Preparation: When medical malpractice is detected, the case is turned over to an experienced trial team, many of whom devote their time exclusively to handling malpractice cases. Proper preparation of these cases is the key. Malpractice cases are so complex that they require personnel to remain current on developments in both law and medicine. Team conferences, review of medical journals, and consultations with medical authorities occur on an ongoing basis to accomplish this goal. This team travels throughout the United States and beyond to find the best possible experts to help prove our clients' claims. The testimony of these experts is generally taken before trial and often leads to favorable settlements for our clients.
Trial: In light of the possibility that a favorable settlement cannot be reached, each case is fully prepared for trial from the outset. Koskoff attorneys have set compensation records for their clients in medical malpractice cases in Connecticut. The firm's $58.3 million malpractice verdict for the parents of a boy born with Cerebral Palsy is the largest medical malpractice jury verdict ever achieved in the state. Koskoff has won six of the ten largest medical malpractice awards in Connecticut history.
In another case, we obtained $3.8 million for the brain-damaged child of a woman who received substandard care in a government hospital in South Dakota. We are confident that our client's victory will result in improved health care for the Native American population.
Experience: Koskoff has more than three decades of experience representing seriously injured patients in medical malpractice cases, including claims involving surgical errors, cancer misdiagnoses and birth injuries.
