Medical Malpractice

Morelli Alters Ratner represents individuals and families whose lives have been forever changed by medical malpractice. The damage done to a victim of medical malpractice involves more than the injury itself; it also involves the tremendous stress and anxiety that comes from the loss of trust between the patient and healthcare provider. Our lawyers establish caring relationships with clients and strive to obtain results on their behalf that are not only fair and just but also focused on the bigger picture of life.

Committed Advocacy & Consistent Success

Our law firm has obtained some of the largest medical malpractice verdicts and settlements both in New York and the United States. Medical malpractice cases are extremely complex and require in-depth medical knowledge and skill in order to deal with the world's best experts. Jennie Shatynski, who is the senior associate in our medical malpractice department, spent fourteen years as a Registered Nurse before entering law school. Her intimate knowledge of medicine, hospital procedure, and physicians' practices enables us to quickly and effectively analyze and pursue your case.
