A personal injury attorney’s clients come to them in despair, often after a life-altering event; their only respite from this newfound turmoil being a just resolution to their suit.
This was especially true for Joseph Awad’s client, who suffered irreparable damage following a Pap smear examination. Because of negligence by both her doctor and the laboratory, her abnormal test results were not properly reviewed and a second test was not immediately done. A whole year went by before another exam was administered, which then revealed a very advanced stage of cervical cancer. After a radical surgery, his client survived the ordeal and Awad was able to secure her the largest verdict in history for failure to timely diagnose cervical cancer.
Awad works on behalf of consumers in matters including medical malpractice, construction site injury, premise security, automobile accidents, municipal liability and unsafe products. His experience includes million dollar recoveries in more than 70 cases, including the highest jury and appellate award in a single year.
