Daryl L. Zaslow

Medical Malpractice & Wrongful Death Lawyer

New Jersey medical malpractice lawyer, Daryl L. Zaslow, is a principal with the law firm of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP and is Certified by the Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney. Mr. Zaslow’s zealous advocacy and transcendent preparation have been instrumental in achieving significant awards for his clients by way of trial verdicts and settlements. He concentrates his practice in various areas of medical malpractice, including obstetrical malpractice, failures in prenatal diagnosis of birth defects and failures in diagnosing cancer cases. He also represents victims in wrongful death and significant personal injury cases.Mr. Zaslow’s accomplishments include a landmark verdict on behalf of a child who sustained a birth injury to her brachial plexus. The verdict in excess of $5.5 million is one of the largest ever obtained in an Erb’s Palsy or shoulder dystocia case. A large part of Mr. Zaslow’s practice is devoted to representing children who have sustained brachial plexus injuries at birth as a result of medical malpractice and Mr. Zaslow has given national lectures on the legal and medical issues unique to these types of shoulder dystocia or Erb’s Palsy cases. Read an article on these types of cases by Mr. Zaslow: Deconstructing the Brachial Plexus Injury Case.

Mr. Zaslow also obtained an $8.2 million verdict in a wrongful birth malpractice case in which Mr. Zaslow represented a 4 year old child with Down syndrome and his parents. Mr. Zaslow argued that the defendants not only failed to order the requisite prenatal screening tests but also failed to properly interpret a prenatal ultrasound that showed markers for Down syndrome. Mr. Zaslow argued that the ultrasound markers necessitated that the mother be offered an amniocentesis. Had an amniocentesis been performed it would have diagnosed Down syndrome, and the mother would have terminated the pregnancy, thereby avoiding the extraordinary costs and mental anguish associated with raising and caring for a person with Down syndrome.New Jersey medical mistakes lawyer, Daryl Zaslow, has also obtained multi-million dollar recoveries for clients in other cases involving negligent prenatal screening of birth defects and genetic disorders. Such cases have involved failures to detect Cystic Fibrosis and congenital heart defects.

Mr. Zaslow’s success for his clients extends beyond medical malpractice cases. For example, in a negligent security case he obtained a $7.8 million dollar recovery on behalf of the Estate of a 29 year old wife and mother who was murdered and her 7 month old son who was stabbed during a robbery and attack.  A portion of the settlement was used to purchase annuities, making the total value of the settlement over $14,323,000.00.  The attack occurred at an apartment complex and Mr. Zaslow argued that Defendants were negligent in failing to have a uniformed security guard on the premises 24 hours a day. The case was ultimately settled a week into the trial.

Daryl L. Zaslow was also retained by the family and the Estate of James McNair (“Jimmy Mack”) due to the tragic death of their father in a fatal car accident involving a Walmart tractor-trailer. Mr. McNair was the only person killed in the accident in which his close friend Tracy Morgan was also injured. Mr. Zaslow appeared on an episode of ABC News Program 20/20, in coverage discussing the dangers of sleep-deprived truckers on our roadways. Watch the episode here. Mr. Zaslow and the family of James McNair also appeared on Entertainment Tonight after Mr. Zaslow obtained a very successful settlement for the family.

Mr. Zaslow also obtained a $2,650,000 verdict on behalf of the Estate of a 42 year old man who died in a motor vehicle accident.

"The list is LONG of the wonderful things that I can say about Barry, Maria (his assistant) & the rest of the folks that I had the HONOR of spending time with during my case. I brought my case to another lawyer that told me that I have no case, yet Barry was not only able to WIN, but he WON a substantial amount! Lawyers have awful reputations, but Barry defies every single one of them! Barry Eichen genuinely CARES about his clients!! NOTHING was too much to ask for – there was no such thing as too many phone calls! Without a doubt, I was in the BEST HANDS with Barry as my attorney! I not only WON my lawsuit, but I also WON lifelong FRIENDS!"

"I had a bad accident back in June of 2015. My dad knows Barry. I have to say he is a great person. I was unsatisfied with some things that were happening with a previous lawyer and he made sure everything was fixed and I was satisfied. My lawyer Edward McElroy is great he answers emails in a timely matter even on weekends. I know they probably used to get annoyed with me calling all the time Lol. But I was just curious to what is going on with my case. Nicole, Ed’s secretary is great. She always responds back to my emails in a timely matter as well and even checks up on things with me from time to time. Barry recently became my mother and cousins Lawyer do to a bad accident they were involved in as well. I would highly recommend this firm. Thanks guys 🙂"
