Another Defense Verdict for Craig Fenno and an Aaronson Rappaport Client in Kings County
February 2018 –
Congratulations to Craig Fenno and his litigation team for another defense verdict in Kings County. In this wrongful death matter, the plaintiff contended that the patient, who died 36 hours after undergoing shoulder replacement surgery performed by our client, should have been sent to a telemetry unit her surgery. The plaintiff argued at trial that had the patient been placed on a telemetry unit, her fatal arrhythmia could have been detected and treated preventing her death. Mr. Fenno successfully explained to the jury that the treatment that would have been rendered for this sudden cardiac event would not have been different had the patient been on a telemetry unit and, further, that there was no reason to do so following the orthopedic surgery performed.
