The Expert Network celebrates its newest member, Attorney Jason D. Friedman
New York, NY, July 18, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Jason D. Friedman, Partner, Smiley & Smiley, LLP, has joined The Expert Network, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Mr. Friedman has been chosen as a Distinguished Lawyer™ based on peer reviews and ratings, dozens of recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout his career.
Mr. Friedman outshines others in his field due to his extensive educational background, career longevity, and numerous awards and recognitions. He earned his B.A. in Economics and Philosophy from Binghamton University in 1990 and his J.D. in 1996 from Brooklyn Law School where he was a member of the Moot Court Honors Society. He has been named to New York Super Lawyers for the past six years running.
With nearly 20 years dedicated to law, Mr. Friedman brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry, and in particular to his area of specialization, personal injury law with a focus on significant medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. When asked why he decided to pursue a career in law, Mr. Friedman said:
"Growing up, I always asked my parents a lot of questions but never let them give me a 'lip service' answer. Rather, I would press on with my questions until I was satisfied with their answers. I was interested in knowing the 'real truth', and thought that being a lawyer would always allow me to get to the truth. Looking back now, I realize that peppering my parents with questions was great training on how to cross-examine a witness. Thanks Mom and Dad!"
As a thought-leader in his industry, Mr. Friedman keeps his eye on prevailing trends within personal injury law. In particular, he has been paying close attention to the ongoing issue over whether or not there should be caps on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases, a matter which he notes is being considered at the federal level:
"Non-economic damages include pain and suffering and many states, such as Texas, cap those at $250,000. This is something that has been ongoing among state legislators around the country. But the latest trend is that there is a federal bill that is about to be introduced in Congress that will create a national cap on these non-economic damages. And that's something that is a very significant concern to plaintiffs for many reasons. I believe it's the insurance industry who lobby, as well as the physicians, with the thought that if there's less money available for recovery for people who bring medical malpractice lawsuits, they might be less inclined to bring them in the first place."
Mr. Friedman has been a legal commentator on many prominent television networks and programs, including Fox News and Good Morning America. One such interview was on Prime News in which he discussed the medical malpractice implications and hospital liability resulting from the overdose of medication to Dennis Quaid's infant twins. Mr. Friedman is also dedicated to educating both current lawyers and law students on trial advocacy practice and procedures.
