Case Results

Since our inception in 1994, the attorneys at Smalline and Harri have recovered millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of our clients.

Examples of our past successes in medical malpractice litigation include a multi-million dollar settlement with the State of New York for wrongful discharge of a psychiatric patient resulting in his death by suicide; recovery against a doctor for negligently removing a healthy ovary from a twenty-nine year-old woman resulting in the early onset of menopause and hormonal imbalance; recovery against a family physician who sent a sixty-year-old man home with samples of antacid for his chest pain during a heart attack, resulting in rupture of the heart and disability; and recovery against an orthopedic surgeon for fastening hardware over a tibial tendon causing it to adhere to the bone, resulting in long-term disability.

In the area of general personal injury, examples of our successes include reaching a settlement with the Boston Diocese for severe sexual abuse of a 16-year-old boy by a priest in a group home in Albany County; recovery for the wrongful death of a 25 year-old single mother that resulted when the operator of a sports car failed to see her vehicle disabled on the side of the road; recovery for the negligent handling of a disabled individual by a home-health care agency, resulting in a shattered hip, surgery and hospitalization; and recovery against a construction employer for failure to provide eye protection resulting in the employee’s partial loss of vision.
