Brooklyn,NY - Personal Injury Law Firm – Frekhtman and Associates helped a victim of medical malpractice to receive a compensation of $1.4 Million in a medical malpractice case.

Online PR News – 16-March-2010 – – Brooklyn, NY - Personal Injury Law Firm - Frekhtman and Associates ( have recovered $1.4 million in a medical malpractice case. The medical malpractice case involved an infant who became victim of medical negligence and lost his eyesight. The failure to diagnosis of a brain tumor by the medical practitioner resulted in the severe loss for the infant.

The delay in diagnosing a brain tumor was brief (around 4 months) from the onset of symptoms until the time when his pediatrician correctly diagnosed the condition. However, due to this brief delay, several medical experts reported that there was no causation or that the blindness was not due to failure to diagnosis of the condition in a timely fashion. It was stated by many doctors that even if the defendant in this case had correctly diagnosed the brain tumor four months earlier, the infant would have still lost his eyesight. These are some of the most common argument and issues in medical malpractice cases.

Frekhtman & Associates, New York working with their personal injury trial attorney were able to locate a medical expert who was able to prove that the brief delay was a substantial factor which can easily result in the blindness. Prior to the medical malpractice trial, the parties negotiated a $1.4 Million Settlement which got approved by Brooklyn Supreme Court of the State of New York in an Infant’s Compromise Order.
