Sullivan Papain Secures One Of 2017’s Largest Medical Malpractice Verdicts in NY
Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo P.C. (SPBMC) won a stunning $26 million medical malpractice jury verdict last week in Kings County Supreme Court on behalf of its client, a seven-year-old girl who was born deaf due to a hospital’s negligence.
Jim Wilkens, of counsel to SPBMC, represented the plaintiff during the one-month trial. The jury awarded the substantial amount to the girl for her for past and future pain and suffering and medical expenses stemming from her deafness and other injuries, including life-long vocal cord paralysis.
