CSCS Stands Up for Medical Malpractice Victims in Washington, DC
This quarter, personal injury law firm Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C., obtained yet another victory for its clients, achieving a $17.1 million medical malpractice verdict in DC Superior Court.

The US healthcare system is robust and advanced, diagnosing and treating hundreds of millions of individuals each year. It is also a system with many flaws. Excessive wait times, billing and coding errors, and medical errors are increasingly prevalent.

For victims of medical errors and malpractice, finding justice for one’s self, family or loved ones can be a daunting challenge. This quarter, personal injury law firm Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C., obtained yet another victory for its clients, achieving a $17.1 million medical malpractice verdict in DC Superior Court.

$17.1 Million Medical Malpractice Verdict Obtained in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia

According to data from the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB), an average of 85,000 medical malpractice suits are filed each year in the United States. Perhaps even a more alarming statistic is that 21% of American adults reported suffering from one or more medical errors (many of whom never filed a lawsuit or claim).

Many patients feel overwhelmed dealing with their own health concerns, unable to muster the physical and emotional energy to fight back against medical errors or harm caused by negligence.

Over the last 50-plus years, the personal injury attorneys at Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. (CSCS) have made it their mission to stand up for the rights of injured parties, fighting back against large corporations, medical organizations, and insurance companies to ensure victims and their families get the compensation they deserve.

On April 6th, 2020, CSCS again demonstrated its ability to persevere in the face of staunch adversaries, achieving a $17,107,000 verdict in D.C. Superior Court. The cumulation of a wrongful death case regarding the negligent treatment of a young mother of three who lost her life as a result of negligent medical care and a failure to properly diagnose. With the support, guidance, and representation from CSCS, the three minor children of the decedent were awarded $5,000,000, each, $500,000 for the decedent’s pain and suffering, and $1,607,000 for lost future wages and household services.

While no amount of money can ever replace human life, CSCS was proud to have delivered some form of justice for these children. Hopefully, this verdict will provide for them for decades to come.
