Medical Malpractice occurs when your doctor or hospital causes injury by failing to provide acceptable care. If your physician or hospital acted in a way that was not consistent with acceptable medical standards, you may have been the victim of Medical Malpractice.

Our firm has a highly trained and experienced team of Medical Malpractice attorneys and counsel with a proven record of significant settlements and verdicts. Our attorneys start by asking questions, obtaining and reviewing medical records and consulting with experts who guide our lawyers in their inquiries. At each stage of our investigation, we work closely with our clients to assure a thorough and complete evaluation. When we have concluded the investigation, we discuss the results we have obtained and the legal options available at that time.

If you believe you have been the victim of Medical Malpractice, you should contact our Medical Malpractice attorneys to discuss your situation.

Lead Poisoning

The hazards of lead paint poisoning have been known throughout the United States since the early 1900s. Buildings built or renovated before the 1978 ban on lead paint can prove a hazard when the paint peels or deteriorates. Lead is absorbed into the bodies of small children through the ingestion of paint chips, dust, soil and other means. Studies show that lead, even at low levels is neurotoxic and can cause learning disabilities, speech delays and brain damage. If your child or someone you know suffers from the effects of lead poisoning, you should consult with an experienced attorney immediately. Ferro, Kuba, Mangano, Sklyar, P.C. has a team of lawyers dedicated to fighting for victims of childhood lead poisoning and its devastating effects.

We trust nursing homes to take care of our aging loved ones when they can no longer take care of themselves. Unfortunately, the abuse and neglect of the elderly in nursing homes has become too common. If you have noticed signs of abuse or neglect to a loved one in a nursing home, it is important to talk and listen to the resident and then consult with an experienced attorney. Our Nursing Home Negligence team is headed by counsel Sean J. Doolan, one of the most well-respected attorneys practicing in this field. At Ferro, Kuba, Mangano, Sklyar, P.C., we have developed a comprehensive and aggressive approach to combating the indignities suffered by our elderly. Our experienced team of trial attorneys and support staff are available to assist you in those types of matters.

Construction / Labor Law

Construction workers labor in a field known to have high accident rates. Working from elevated heights with complex machinery creates a naturally high-risk environment for the worker. Although in many cases, workers entitled to benefits under the workers' compensation law cannot sue their employer for pain and suffering, they may sue a third-party, another contractor, or the property owner for damages. The New York Labor Law, sections 200 and 240 provide additional rights to the construction worker. In many cases the law is so strong that your own negligence will not reduce your recovery. Our trial attorneys have handled countless cases for construction workers injured on the job, and we have achieved outstanding results. In many instances, these cases involve traumatic injuries including those involving the spine, bone fractures, amputations, death and disfigurement as well as serious neurological disorders. Each attorney and paralegal has vast knowledge of both the physical and emotional aspects of these types of injuries and remain prepared to provide clients with the services and counsel they need and deserve.
