Ms. Arfaa’s experience and track record make her a strong choice for Maryland medical malpractice victims. Over the years, Ms. Arfaa has obtained a number of settlements and jury awards in the millions of dollars.

Another notable case was a $4 million jury verdict that was the largest jury verdict ever received in a malpractice case in Frederick County. In addition, Ms. Arfaa obtained a $5.36 million jury verdict for a medical malpractice/wrongful death case in Washington, D.C., which was the largest jury verdict ever received in the District of Columbia for a medical malpractice wrongful death case. In July 2012, Ms. Arfaa obtained a $21 million verdict in Baltimore City against a local physician and hospital for their negligent care during a child’s delivery. Building on that success, in May 2013, Ms. Arfaa received a $15.65 million verdict against another local hospital and physician for negligent care during labor and delivery, which led to a child’s cerebral palsy. These are two of the three largest verdicts in Maryland history for birth injuries sustained as a result of medical negligence. In November 2017, Ms. Arfaa and Mr. Cusson obtained a $18.54 million dollar verdict for a 30 year old man who was not properly resuscitated during a code for a massive pulmonary embolus. This is the largest jury verdict in a medical malpractice case in the history of Baltimore County.
