Throughout his distinguished legal career, Attorney Paul Dansker has represented countless individuals and families whose lives were tragically altered as a result of medical malpractice. Serving New York area residents for over four decades, Mr. Dansker is the medical malpractice, personal injury, and accident attorney that injured plaintiffs have come to know and trust. His commitment to his clients – and getting them the compensation that they deserve – is unmatched and has helped him to develop one of the most successful personal injury practices in the state of NY, especially in New York City.
A South Jersey native, Mr. Dansker’s education began at Rutgers University, where he completed a degree in Business Administration in 1976. He went on to complete his J.D. at Brooklyn Law School in 1979 and quickly went on to pass the bar. He took some time off to travel in the Middle East and Europe, and these experiences helped him to develop an improved worldview and cultural sensitivity that he has used throughout his legal career.
Upon returning to the U.S., Mr. Dansker accepted a position as associate with Weisberg, Sieven, and Mammana. It was here that he found his passion – personal injury law. He worked diligently to master his craft of trial advocacy, taking on a variety of personal injury, accident, and medical malpractice cases. As his reputation and client base grew, he went on to create his own practice in 1986. He later merged with Mr. Aspromonte to create the firm that so many New Yorkers trust today – Dansker & Aspromonte Associates.
Over the years, Mr. Dansker’s commitment to properly representing victims of medical malpractice has led to tremendous results. Some of his most notable victories include:
- Christian N. vs. Manhattan Eye and Ear Infirmary – Won over $50 million for a young boy that suffered significant injuries due to medical malpractice.
- Raphael C. vs. New York City and St Barnabas Hospital- Won 7.5 million for the family of a young man who was killed after a line of duty accident by a negligent hospital staff.
- Owen S. vs. The City of New York – Won $3.6 million for a firefighter after the Fire Department Medical Clinic failed to tell the patient they discovered a heart murmur. Failure to disclose this information delayed treatment and led to the development of subacute endocarditis and permanent disability.
- Eric Q. vs. NYC Health and Hospitals Corp. – Won $2.75 million after ER staff failed to diagnose compartment syndrome, which resulted in the plaintiff losing his lower leg.
Mr. Dansker’s loyalty and attention to the needs of medical malpractice clients has earned him an impressive reputation. He is committed to not only getting clients proper compensation for their injuries, but he also works to assure that no one else has to experience their pain.
