I lost a trial yesterday. Want to know why?

I lost a trial yesterday in Brooklyn Supreme Court. But the most amazing thing happened today. My client called me today to thank me for what I did for her. She thought I was amazing. Her praise was so wonderful and unexpected that I asked her to put her feelings in an e-mail to me so I could put it on my website for others to see. She happily agreed. Although disappointed with the result of her case, she felt that my representation of her was outstanding. You might be asking why I would tell a story involving a case I lost at trial. I’ll tell you why.

Gerry Oginski wins $1.5 Million Verdict in Podiatry Malpractice Case

On Friday, July 23, 2010, a Westchester County jury in the Supreme Court of the State of New York determined that my client, Annemarie Flannery was entitled to be compensated $1.5 million as compensation for injuries caused by a podiatrist during bunion surgery. Her husband, David Flannery was entitled to be compensated $50,000 for his lost services claim. The case involved a claim of a failure to properly perform foot surgery involving my client's bunion on her right foot. It was our claim that the podiatrist removed too much bone during the procedure, and improperly positioned the first metatarsal. As result, this changed the dynamic forces of her foot and forced her to bear most of her weight underneath the second and third metatarsals in her foot. We also claimed that the patient should have had her second and third metatarsals surgically shortened during her first bunion surgery. This would have prevented the problem from arising.
