April L. Strang-Kutay, Shareholder, National Medical Malpractice
Attorney

April L. Strang-Kutay is a medical malpractice attorney with extensive experience in her chosen field, having practiced exclusively in this area for more than 29 years. She is nationally recognized as an “AV” attorney, the highest rating accorded lawyers by Martindale-Hubbell. Ms. Strang-Kutay is also a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, in recognition of her success in representing clients who have been victims of medical negligence.

Ms. Strang-Kutay structures her professional time by assigning 50% of her efforts to litigating general malpractice claims in the state of Pennsylvania—she has litigated cases in virtually every aspect of medical practice such as obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, gastroenterology, general surgery, cardiology, oncology, ophthalmology, and many other disciplines. In the remaining 50% of her professional time, Ms. Strang-Kutay concentrates her efforts on the national level in representing clients who have been the victims of medical negligence in the treatment of brain tumors, spinal conditions, and other neurosurgical and neurologic conditions. Her practice is devoted to exclusively representing victims: those who have been injured due to medical negligence as well as families who have lost a loved one due to errors in diagnosis or treatment.

Having represented victims of medical negligence for over 29 years, she has obtained many six and seven figure recoveries for her clients. Goldberg Katzman has access to the finest medical experts across America. Ms. Strang-Kutay strongly believes that lawsuits should only be brought if they have merit, and she does not sue doctors frivolously. No case is instituted unless very qualified medical personnel support the matter fully.

In recent years, Ms. Strang-Kutay has litigated medical negligence cases in the following states: Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, New Hampshire, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Utah, California, Arizona, Washington, Virginia, New York, Vermont, and Alaska. She has published in journals and textbooks on the topic of the law as it interfaces with medical treatment of neurological conditions, and on the legal doctrine of informed consent. She is also a frequent lecturer on these subjects across the country. Ms. Strang-Kutay is a particular advocate on the patient’s right to be fully informed of options and the potential consequences of treatment.

All medical negligence and personal injury cases are taken on a contingent fee basis, and the client never owes legal fees unless a recovery is generated.
