Professional Negligence/Malpractice

The results of professional negligence are often life-shattering. The malpractice attorneys at Newmark Storms Dworak are prepared to help you hold negligent professionals accountable.

The attorneys at Newmark Storms Dworak have expertise in professional negligence claims in a variety of contexts.  We have successfully pursued malpractice and related claims against hospitals, doctors, nurses, chiropractors, and social workers.

We often represent plaintiffs where the circumstances of their malpractice overlaps with our sex abuse and civil rights practices.  Our award-winning trial lawyers have obtained $1 Million Dollar+ recoveries for plaintiffs on matters involving sexual assault, civil rights violations, and medical malpractice.

Our professional negligence practice also intersects with our privacy work.  We have successfully pursued cases for the unlawful release of medical records under the Minnesota Health Records Act. Jeff Storms was also previously part of a team of class counsel who obtained a $2 Million Dollar settlement for violations of the Drivers Privacy Protection Act — this settlement was reported to be the largest DPPA settlement in U.S. History.

We are not your ordinary plaintiff’s firm.  We regularly succeed in state and federal court on complicated cases.  We are known for our ability to pursue high-profile and complicated cases.  We have won “Attorney of the Year” three times.  In 2013, Jeff Storms was named an “Attorney of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer for his work on a $3.075 Million Dollar police brutality wrongful death recovery — the largest police brutality wrongful death settlement in Minnesota History.   In 2018, Jeff was again named an Attorney for the Year for his work on the Kendrea Johnson foster child suicide case, which resulted in a $1.5 Million Dollar settlement.  In 2016, Paul Dworak was named Attorney of the Year for his work on a highly-publicized, free speech case, which settled for $425,000.  Paul also previously recovered $600,000 for a child who was subjected to medical malpractice by an orthopedic surgeon.

Our recent high-profile litigation has been featured throughout various media outlets:

Fairview-University of Minnesota hospital sued over alleged sexual assault of disabled teen

Girl, 6, died by hanging in foster care. County settles with family for $1.5 million.
