In 2020, Lubin & Meyer PC again stood alone as the demonstrated leader in medical malpractice and catastrophic personal injury law in New England recording more verdicts and settlements of $1 million or more than any other firm in the region. As much of the world was brought to a halt by the Coronavirus pandemic, Lubin & Meyer maintained its place as the leader — seamlessly and skillfully moving cases through the courts, continuing to engage new clients, and recording 32 verdicts and settlements of $1 million or more in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
Featured among them was the $3.15 million verdict, Antonio v. Medlock: This medical malpractice lawsuit claimed a neurosurgeon botched the screw placement during spine surgery that resulted in new injuries and subsequent surgery for his patient. The case was highlighted in the Boston Magazine article, The Secret Truth About Boston Doctors, and was the topic of an interview with Attorney Andrew Meyer on NECN. The defendant neurosurgeon served as a board member of the Board of Registration in Medicine and the Massachusetts Medical Society.
