Compassionate, Professional Representation For Victims Of Medical Malpractice
When injured or ill, we place our health and even our lives in the care of medical professionals. Most of the time, that trust is earned and well-placed. Sometimes, however, patients end up in a worse condition due to the negligent actions of a doctor or hospital. If you’ve been seriously injured or lost someone you love due to medical malpractice, you have every right to seek appropriate compensation in civil court. And when you do, The Law Offices of Robert F. Rich, Jr. PLLC, is the firm to call for help.
Having spent the majority of his over 30-year career trying medical malpractice cases on behalf of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers, attorney Bob Rich learned and effectively used every weapon in the defense arsenal to win jury verdicts for his clients. He now uses this wealth of experience and unique perspective to fight on behalf of the victims of medical negligence and their families.
Ready For Whatever Your Case Requires
Throughout his career, Bob has faced some of the best lawyers in the country in court. As a result, he has developed an in-depth knowledge of medicine as well as the most effective strategies for successfully handling cases in this highly specialized area of the law. He has won verdicts in cases dealing with virtually every area of medicine, including:
- Birth injuries
- Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose (cancer, stroke, heart attack, etc.)
- Medication errors (related to dosing, dangerous drug interactions, incorrect medicine, etc.)
- Surgical errors
- Failure to monitor
- Anesthesia errors
- Dental malpractice
- Medical specialist malpractice
Because of his wealth of knowledge, Bob has presented lectures to other lawyers in his field. In 2012, he was named by Medical Malpractice Lawyers, an independent national publication, as among the top 1% of trial lawyers for medical malpractice in New York State.
An Attorney Who Knows And Understands Opposing Counsel
Whenever he takes a medical malpractice case, attorney Rich immediately begins thinking through the case from the defense perspective. He asks questions such as: How will defense lawyers try to dispute the evidence or justify the medical decisions that were made? Because he knows and has collegial relationships with so many of the attorneys who do defense work, he can even anticipate settlement strategies and predict whether a case will need to go to court.
When you reach out to the firm for assistance, Bob will take the time to listen to your story and help you assess whether you have an actionable claim. While he cannot accept every case, his skills as an attorney and his commitment to doing what’s right mean that Bob often takes cases that many other attorneys might turn down.
