Aggressively Obtaining Justice for Victims of Negligence

Rick has concluded many workers compensation cases where catastrophic injuries resulted in paraplegia and brain injury, leading to settlements in excess of a million dollars. He has also represented clients who have sustained serious and catastrophic injuries as the result of motor vehicle accidents, acting as lead counsel in the recovery of a $9 million settlement obtained on behalf of a young woman who sustained permanent brain damage after her car collided with a commercial truck.

Rick has successfully handled a number of cases involving medical negligence, including:

  • Failure to properly resuscitate an expectant mother following an overdose of anesthesia through her epidural, resulting in a persistent vegetative state
  • Failure to resuscitate a young man following an anesthetic overdose prior to hand surgery, resulting in death
  • Failure to adequately diagnose and treat a pregnant mother in pre-term labor, resulting in significant brain injuries and disabilities to the child
