Relentless determination and a complete dedication to the personal needs of its clients have made The Sanders Firm into one of the country’s premier personal injury and medical malpractice firms. Founded in 1967 by Stanley J. Sanders, the firm’s legal team includes some of the country’s most noted attorneys. The Sanders attorneys have years of experience in bringing large cases to fruition, which have combined to create a practice that is national in scope, with clients in all fifty states and abroad. With more than 35,000 clients in the New York area alone, The Sanders Firm serves as trial counsel to many of the New York area’s other personal injury law firms.
When a client receives representation or consultation from any of The Sanders Firm’s highly experienced attorneys, they are given access to a wealth of expertise and resources that will help them reach a successful resolution. These lawyers, with the help of the firm’s Medical Team and support staff (including an in-office physician and several on-staff nurse-paralegals), provide their clients with the knowledge they need to achieve a peace of mind throughout the litigation. “The attorneys at The Sanders Firm follow the highest standards of care when it comes to our clients, and our track record definitely proves that,” says partner Marc Grossman.

The Sanders Firm has recently added a number of large verdicts and settlements to its lengthy list of awards, including $5.3 million for a client who was paralyzed when a defective carbon fiber bicycle collapsed; $2.5 million, $1.8 million, and $1.8 million for three separate construction accidents; $2.75 million for a New York City teacher who sustained a mild head injury when struck by an opening door; and $1 million for a nursing home abuse case.
The Sanders Firm’s pharmaceutical liability practice is one of the country’s most effective weapons for stamping out the greed and stemming the damage wrought by the world’s negligent drug manufacturers, and it often finds itself as the first point of contact following the issuance of a black-box warning or product recall. The firm, which participated in the recovery of $4.85 billion for hundreds of clients in the cumulative settlement against Merck over their controversial painkiller Vioxx, is currently engaged in litigation surrounding numerous pharmaceuticals, with Mr. Grossman on the Steering committees for diabetes drug Avandia (against drug manufacturing giant Glaxo-Smithkline Beecham), Chantix (against Pfizer), Levaquin (against Ortho- McNeil), and Zicam (against Matrixx Initiatives); and acting as one of the lead counsel in the Oxycontin litigation in Richmond County, NY, and the Fosamax trial (against Merck) in New Jersey this fall.
