New Jersey medical malpractice and wrongful death 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 also represents victims in wrongful death and significant personal injury cases.


In 2024, 2022 and 2020, Mr. Zaslow was recognized by Best Lawyers in America as its “Lawyer of the Year” in Medical Malpractice – Plaintiffs, in New Jersey. Read the article featuring Mr. Zaslow. In 2023, Mr. Zaslow obtained a $12,000,000 recovery on behalf of the Estate of a 35 year old man who died after being admitted to a Hospital’s Emergency Department for a severe allergic reaction. Mr. Zaslow argued that the emergency medicine physician and the emergency department’s nurses and medical staff collectively failed to timely administer proper medications and failed to ensure an intubation was performed before his client went into cardiorespiratory arrest. A portion of the settlement was used to purchase annuities which brought the total value of the recovery to over $21,000,000.


In 2021, Mr. Zaslow was recognized by The New Jersey Law Journal as having obtained 2 of the top 4 Personal Injury recoveries in New Jersey in 2021. Mr. Zaslow was the only attorney in New Jersey who had more than one of the Top 10 recoveries in 2021. These recoveries included the largest recovery in a medical malpractice case ($7.0 million award – tied with another case) and the largest recovery in a case involving a trucking accident or motor vehicle accident ($6.85 million award). In 2020, Mr. Zaslow was recognized by The New Jersey Law Journal and as having obtained four of the Top 10 reported settlements in New Jersey in 2019. The recognition and recoveries included the largest recovery in a Medical Malpractice case ($6.5 million); Two of the Top Three largest recoveries in Medical Malpractice cases ($6.5 million and $5.0 million); and the largest recovery in a case that did not involve a class action ($6.5 million). Mr. Zaslow also had five of the Top 20 recoveries included in this list, and was the only attorney who had more than two of the Top 20 recoveries in 2019.


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. (Please note: Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances. These results do not guarantee similar outcomes for your case.)


Mr. Zaslow also obtained an $8.2 million verdict in a wrongful birth malpractice case in which Mr. Zaslow represented a four-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 regularly handles cases involving the negligent performance of complex prenatal screening tests and he has given national lectures on handling such cases.


Mr. Zaslow is a frequent lecturer for the American Association for Justice, ICLE and the New Jersey Association for Justice on medical malpractice, wrongful birth and trial skills.
