Siegel & Coonerty, LLP
Cross Examination Revealed Truth in Medical Malpractice Case – New York Attorney Andrew Siegel
During trial, we questioned the doctor in regards to her breast reduction and how he promised she did not have to pay for her medical procedure due to upper back pain. However, the doctor never stated that in the medical chart and then took a large amount of breast tissue out of her body because that’s how much was required for the insurance company to pay for it. The doctor not only went against the wishes of the patient, he gave her two different size breasts and committed insurance fraud to get paid. Watch the video now to learn more.
Defense Goes After Client Credibility if They Don’t Have a Case – New York Attorney Andrew Siegel
Unfortunately this does happen and we need to be prepared for it. One case had the judge even objecting the defense attorney when I wasn’t as the defense attorney attacks my client for alcoholism, bad checks, and past arrests. The judge did not understand why I would not object and the defense attorney looked as if he was the victor in the case. I helped the jury see how these circumstances were actually as a result of the malpractice and how it has resulted in very bad times financially and emotionally for him. We finally showed that none of these things had to do with whether or not the doctor caused malpractice and injury, and that the other lawyers were trying to show the jury all the bad about my client instead of proving their own case – which they couldn’t do.

Doctor Failed to Diagnose Heart Attack – New York Personal Injury Attorney Andrew Siegel
In fact, not only did the doctor misdiagnosis the case, but simply told our client to just stop drinking coffee. Our client had chest pain, shortness of breath, and pain radiating in the shoulder, classic symptoms of a heart attack. Even more ridiculous than this bad diagnosis is how it was made. The doctor actually admitted to failing to diagnose the heart attack because the patient did not “clutch” his heart when complaining to pain. He presented with all the symptoms, but because he simply placed his hand over his heart and did not “clutch” his heart, the doctor blew it off as too much caffeine.

Misdiagnosed MRI Leads to $43 Million Dollar Verdict – New York Attorney Andrew Siegel Explains
People always question me why the jury gave my client $43 million dollars in an injury case, especially since we went to the other side and asked for only $5 million. While working in a nail salon, the client was injured when the roof fell on her. When the doctor did an MRI, it was read incorrectly and the injury was allowed to get worse and cause serious medical conditions for the client. She suffered an aneurysm and this could have been prevented by the doctor who first treated her after the accident. The extra steps that could have been taken to ensure she was medically fit were part of the accepted medical care that she deserved to get. Watch the video now to learn more.
Tag Heuer – New York Medical Malpractice Attorney Andrew Siegel Explains
When the doctor failed to give good medical care, it resulted in the overdose and injury of our client. The doctor failed to even monitor her vital signs correctly as he gave anesthesia without the correct medical equipment.
When questioned about how the doctor could even monitor her signs without the right equipment, the doctor replied by pointing at his watch and explaining the make was “Tag Heuer.” Obviously, this did not make much sense and was followed with how the watch was produced in the 60s. The doctor claimed that he used this watch to monitor her vital signs and that it was good and accepted medical care to do so. It goes without saying, we won our case.

How Cross Exam of Defendants Radiologist Proved Case – New York Personal Injury Lawyer Andy Siegel
When our doctor said that my client had developed a new lesion in his brain due to an accident, the other side’s doctor claimed it was old and could not have occurred at that time. We walked the other doctor through multiple questions regarding the lesion and even showed how maybe there was an old lesion but it could remain completely harmless until the accident – that the accident could have caused the lesion to develop the new symptoms like loss of smell and taste. The doctor’s only choice was to agree that this was possible, helping win our case. Watch the video now to learn more.
Doctors Point Fingers at Each Other – New York Personal Injury Lawyer Andy Siegel
A surgery for our client included the entering of a device. The disagreement was about how two doctors recalled how this procedure went in two different ways. The young doctor said he noticed blood at the site of the device and informed his attending physician immediately. He said the attending then jabbed the device in further, causing blood to splatter everywhere. The attending doctor claimed that the resident doctor put the device in the wrong position and caused the injury. However, the site in which the instrument went in was in the belly but should have been the leg. It is a rare occurrence when two doctors involved in a case don’t point fingers at the lawyer, but instead at each other. And in this case, it was a clear sign something went wrong.

The Case no one Wanted – New York Medical Malpractice Attorney Andy Siegel Explains
New York medical malpractice attorney Andy Siegel explains how he likes to challenge himself with difficult cases.
Sometimes we get clients who have been rejected at other law firms because their case doesn’t seem good or is too challenging. We are happy to take those types of cases. One client who lost the use of her legs caused by an injury to her spine, did not seek medical help for several hours. This is a fault all her own and could not be recovered in a case. However, when she finally did seek help, she was made to wait for several more hours. This gave the abyss in her spine time to move up her body and caused lack of motion in her arms as well. That is something that could have been prevented by the medical staff, even if the first several hours were her fault. Watch the video now to learn more.
Treated for Cancer She Never Had – New York Medical Malpractice Attorney Andy Siegel Explains
New York medical malpractice attorney Andy Siegel talks about a client who had to suffer multiple surgeries in regards to a cancer diagnosis.
After three surgeries – the last of which caused nerve damage and injury to her arm – she decides a second opinion is necessary. This is a time where it would have been extremely beneficial for her to get a second opinion earlier, but luckily she stopped before she was given chemotherapy. The second opinion actually revealed she did not have cancer and we brought a suit against the doctor who caused her so much harm. Watch the video now to learn more.
NY Medical Malpractice Attorney Andrew Siegel Describes a Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong
Medical malpractice and personal injury attorney Andrew W. Siegel, practicing with Siegel & Coonerty, discusses a case he had where cosmetic surgery went wrong.
One of our clients came to us because she went to a doctor for cosmetic breast surgery. She simply wanted a lift and perkiness added to her breasts. The doctor removed too much breast tissue – not to mention left her with two different cup sizes – in order to meet the medical insurance company’s rules of getting paid for breast reduction. However, she never asked for that type of surgery, and he committed this medical malpractice just to insure he would get paid. Watch the video now to learn more.
