Most serious accidents are complicated matters that involve equally complex principles of science and engineering that must be explained to a jury.
With degrees in engineering and biology hanging on walls right alongside their law degrees, partners Richard Gurfein and Preston Douglas, are your Lawyers With An Edge® when fighting big insurance companies, negligent businesses, and even City Hall.
New York courts have made it harder than ever for accident victims to recover just compensation for their injuries – injuries that can devastate the lives of victims and their families.
At Gurfein Douglas, you can rely on the scientific training of our two partners to uncover the often hidden technical details of your case that the untrained eye might miss. Details like how the laws of physics and other scientific principles support your side of the story.
Elise Alpert, RN JD, has become Counsel to the Firm in our Mass Tort Department. Ms. Alpert's vast experience in organizing and litigating Mass Tort claims on behalf of seriously injured patients makes her a perfect fit for Gurfein Douglas LLP. The law firm has been handling product liability cases, including medical devices and pharmaceuticals for over 40 years.
Prescription drugs and medical devices are supposed to make you better. But they don't always do what they are supposed to do. Take, for example, the DePuy hip replacement. This metal-on-metal artificial hip joint was supposed to outlast it's competition that used a plastic liner. Unfortunately, not only did the metal-on-metal hip fail earlier, but it shed microscopic metal shavings that poison the patient's blood stream.
At Gurfein Douglas we pursue these Mass Tort cases along side our other product liability and medical malpractice cases for seriously injured individuals. Presently we are accepting cases involving the DePuy hip, transvaginal mesh implants for pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence, and cases involving the drugs Actos, Fosamax and Pradaxa. If you or someone you know has been injured by these medical products or others, please have them call the Lawyers With An Edge® to determine their rights at 1-866-699-EDGE.
