(An Excerpt) "Gary Alan Friedman of Friedman & Friedman, P.A., Coral Gables, recently obtained a confidential medical malpractice settlement resulting in an eight-figure recovery for a minor child who is now deaf, blind, and significantly brain damaged. The 1 year old otherwise healthy child entered the hospital for a urinary infection and mild dehydration. Within 24 hours, the child was in a coma and significantly damaged as a result of improper care and mishandled fluid management. In addition, Mr. Friedman appeared on a 1-hour CNN special in December 1995. The special related to the issue of whether psychiatrists should be responsible for damages when one of their patients injures an innocent third person. Mr. Friedman was counsel for a young man who was gunned down by a psychiatric patient who had threatened to harm the young man and whose threats were known by the psychiatrist. The case resulted in appellate review and is the benchmark case in Florida on the issue. Friedman appears in the Personal Injury Law: General, Personal Injury Law: Medical & Professional Malpractice, and Personal Injury Law: Products Liability Chapters, Consumer Edition."
