Robert Deutsch obtains discontinuance of defendant hospital in New York County after 4 weeks of trial

Robert Deutsch represented the defendant hospital in a matter wherein the patient sustained a stroke as a result of an intra-operative complication, leaving the patient profoundly disabled.  Plaintiff contended that the hospital failed to comply with the standard of care with regard to an intra-operative consult it was asked to provide, as well as with regard to the post-operative care,  and that those failures led to the development of the post-operative stroke.  After 4 weeks of testimony, the plaintiff resolved the matter with the co-defendant, discontinuing Mr. Deutsch’s client without any payment of the hospital’s behalf.

Nick Marotta obtains another defense verdict for an ARFD client

Congratulations to Nick Marotta and his trial team for achieving another defense verdict for an ARFD client! The lawsuit, venued in New York County, focused on the issue of an intestinal perforation more than one week after surgery. The plaintiff contended that this perforation was missed during the initial surgery. Nick demonstrated that the perforation was as a result of a small, unrecognizable serosal tear to the wall of the intestine that broke down over time, leading to a perforation that was not present at time of the initial surgery. Well done!
