For 38 years, Paul Simonson has dedicated his efforts to the representation of victims of medical malpractice who have suffered serious injury and death.
A national leader in the area of weight-loss surgery malpractice, including gastric bypass and adjustable lap banding, he has lectured at Harvard Medical School on patient safety issues in weight-loss surgery, to the American Society of Hospital Risk Managers on ways to reduce the occurrence of hospital-based gastric bypass malpractice, and on behalf of the American Conference Institute on the management of post- operative leaks.
Recently, Paul authored a chapter in the third edition of “New York Medical Malpractice” dealing with the cross examination of the defense expert(published by the New York State Bar Association). Paul has lectured throughout the United States on pretrial and trial practice, and appears regularly on behalf of the New York State Bar Association.
Paul’s aggressive work on behalf of his clients was rewarded when in 2010/2011, and again in 2012, US News recognized Simonson Hess Leibowitz & Goodman, as one of only a handful of “First Tier” New York City medical malpractice law firms. He also has been recognized as a Super Lawyer for number of years and as a Best Lawyer since 2006. Paul is proud to carry the highest possible rating on ability and ethics from Martindale Hubbell.
Gastric bypass surgery is a medical procedure designed to facilitate long term weight loss. Weight loss surgery can be very dangerous, despite proper care. There are recognized risks and complications associated with gastric bypass surgery regardless of the level of care a patient may receive. Even patients who receive appropriate treatment may develop serious complications. However, sometimes gastric bypass patients do not receive proper care, resulting in serious, permanent injury and even death.
