Craig Fenno Obtains Fifth Defense Verdict since June 1st
July 2012 –
Plaintiff claimed that the firm’s client, an orthopedist represented by Mr. Fenno, improperly treated a lateral tibial plateau fracture in a 52-year-old man resulting in in post-traumatic arthritis and a limp. As a result, plaintiff received 20-30 injections of Lidocaine into the knee and claimed he would need a total knee replacement in the near future with at least one revision during his lifetime. The defense used a surveillance video of plaintiff taking public transportation to work that cast doubt on the extent of plaintiff’s alleged damages. The case was tried in Kings County for three weeks. Plaintiff’s counsel asked for $3 million during his summation. The jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the defense in 30 minutes.
