Details

As a principal of the New Jersey law firm of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP, attorney Daryl L. Zaslow devotes his practice primarily to representing victims of medical malpractice and trucking accidents.

Certified as a civil trial attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court and possessing over 21 years of legal experience, Mr. Zaslow concentrates his practice in various areas of medical malpractice, including obstetrical malpractice, failures in prenatal diagnosis of birth defects and failures in diagnosising 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 staunch advocate for children, he has helped secure some of the largest settlements and verdicts ever awarded for cases involving Erb's Palsy and other instances of wrongful birth malpractice, and he lectures extensively throughout the country on these topics.

In addition, he has secured substantial, multimillion-dollar settlements and awards for victims of commercial truck accidents, and he helped obtain a $7.8 million settlement on behalf of the estate of a young mother murdered during a robbery of her apartment.

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.Mr. Zaslow and the family of James McNair also appeared on Entertainment Tonight after Mr. Zaslow obtained a very successful settlement for the family. The settlement received national attention by the press and media.

A 1993 honors graduate of the College of William and Mary, Mr. Zaslow attended the American University Washington College of Law, obtaining his Juris Doctor, cum laude, in 1996. That same year, both the New Jersey State Bar Association and the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey admitted him to practice.
