Community Involvement Spotlight: Rob Sachs & the SeniorLAW Center

Published on Jun 3, 2016 at 8:05 pm in In The News.

At Shrager & Sachs, we care about our community and take pride in getting involved with local organizations. As part of his commitment to the people he serves, Attorney Robert Sachs is involved with the SeniorLAW Center, where he serves as a board member.

Mr. Sachs views his service as a board member of SeniorLaw Center as an adjunct to his nursing home negligence practice. “Over 20 years ago, just after I began working as David Shrager’s partner in 1994, Mr. Shrager encouraged myself and the rest of the firm to become involved in cases on behalf of Pennsylvania’s senior citizens,” said Mr. Sachs. “As a group, Mr. Shrager felt that older Pennsylvanians were horribly underserved regarding legal services. Especially in the context of personal injury litigation, where lawyers traditionally undertake representation on a contingent fee basis, the available damages for one who was no longer working and had a relatively short statistical life expectancy has kept many lawyers from representing older clients.”

Settlement Finalized: $900, 000 Awarded to Woman Who Suffered Permanent Injury to Spinal Accessory Nerve

Published on Apr 6, 2015 at 8:26 pm in In The News.

Shrager & Sachs was able to settle a case for an emergency room nurse who developed complex regional pain syndrome after incurring a spinal accessory nerve injury during a lymph node biopsy while under receiving diagnostic care at a hospital in central Pennsylvania.

The spinal accessory nerve controls functions related to the muscles in the shoulders and the head, such as shrugging the shoulders or tilting the head back. It can also affect motions of the arms, including extension and other larger arm movements originating in the shoulders.

Immediately after the biopsy, the patient began to experience injury symptoms promptly. The doctor’s defense was that there was no way that the procedure could have injured her in such a manner as she had claimed, as the nerve was too “deep” in the lymph node to be accessible.

Partner Rob Sachs Secures Settlement for Victim of Surgical Injury

Published on Dec 23, 2014 at 8:29 pm in In The News.

Shrager & Sachs is pleased to announce that Managing Partner Rob Sachs, Jr. has recently settled a central Pennsylvania medical malpractice case. The case was settled for just under $1 million.

The case involved a surgical injury to our client’s “spinal accessory” nerve during a lymph node biopsy procedure. In addition to suffering from a loss of function of the muscles typically controlled by the spinal accessory nerve, our client also developed a highly disabling “complex regional pain syndrome.”

Coincidentally, our client was a former emergency room nurse at the very hospital where the malpractice occurred. As a result of her injury, she will never work again a
