Medical malpractice can have debilitating effects on its victims and will often change the course of their lives. When this occurs, it takes a seasoned attorney to navigate the legal system and find justice for those who have suffered.
Michael Duffy was the partner in charge of a case in which one of the firm’s clients suffered a serious brain injury following a seizure. With his help, the attorneys at Duffy & Duffy secured more than $100 million for the client after successfully proving that if doctors had treated him in a timely fashion, the injury could have been avoided.
But this is nothing new for the managing partner of his family-run firm. Concentrating his practice aiding catastrophically injured victims and wrongful death claims involving medical malpractice and personal injury, he has secured many multi-million dollar settlements.
Duffy’s philanthropic work includes having served on the board of directors of United Cerebral Palsy of Suffolk County, “We Care” of the Nassau County Bar Association, the Adelphi Breast Cancer Coalition and Cancer Care of Long Island.
