NY LITIGATION

Jeffrey W. Varcadipane was retained to assist a NYC personal injury firm whose client’s injuries far exceeded available insurance coverage. Through a separately filed action under New York’s Debtor and Creditor Law, Mr. Varcadipane secured assets worth more than $1 million above the available insurance policy, which paved the way for Plaintiff’s recovery of a $1,750,000 settlement.

The medical malpractice in this action arose on October 13, 2000 in a delivery room at Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn during the infant plaintiff’s birth. It is alleged that the doctors failed to appropriately deliver the infant causing her to sustain shoulder dystocia which resulted in Erb’s Palsy of her right upper extremity. As a result, the infant required physical therapy to her right arm. The New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation agreed to settle the action and fund a structured settlement on behalf of the infant which will produce period payments throughout her lifetime.
