Mr. Breakstone’s $10.2 million recovery against a national ambulance company led to fundamental regulatory changes with ambulance incident reporting in Massachusetts. His $1 million settlement for a spinal fusion patient who was abandoned by a surgeon at Mount Auburn Hospital resulted in a new hospital policy to inform patients if a doctor is suspended.

Mr. Breakstone is known for his results for clients injured in public transportation accidents and pedestrians who have been injured or killed in bus accidents.
