Landers & Cernigliaro, P.C. is a law firm specializing in handling medical malpractice cases throughout the State of New York with offices on Long Island and in New York City. We have successfully represented clients in cases involving cerebral palsy, brain damage, birth injury, Erb’s palsy, failure to diagnose cancer, blood clots, stroke, heart attack, surgical mistakes, and emergency room errors. Through verdicts and settlements we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
Our reputation in this specialized area of the law is that we are quite selective as to what matters we accept, but once a matter is undertaken it is handled as expeditiously as possible with a very high likelihood of success. The foundation for our success is access to highly qualified physicians with whom we have developed relationships over many years who help us screen cases from the beginning, making the road to a substantial recovery for our clients a much smoother one. Our firm belief is that the clients come first, and they are kept well informed of all progress from inception to conclusion.
All of our cases are handled on a contingency basis, meaning that there is no fee unless there is a monetary recovery. Investigation usually takes approximately four to six weeks. Once a case is accepted, we are almost always able to finish all legal work and place the case on the calendar within nine months. The waiting time for a case to come to the top of the calendar varies in each county within New York.
