Concetta Lomanto, Esq. of Maynard, O’Connor, Smith & Catalinotto, LLP Obtains another Successful Verdict in Oneida County

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:48 pm

Concetta Lomanto, Esq. of Maynard, O’Connor, Smith & Catalinotto, LLP represented a local emergency medicine physician at a recent trial in Oneida County Supreme Court in Utica, New York and a defense verdict was returned, the physician was vindicated and justice prevailed. The case involved complications that resulted from prostate cancer following a radical prostatectomy, which resulted in the need for implantation of an artificial urinary sphincter. The case involved expert testimony in emergency medicine and urology. The key issue in this case was whether the emergency medicine attending physician met the accepted standard of care in approving the placement of a urinary catheter to relieve the patient’s urinary retention when the patient presented to the emergency department. After a two week trial, the unanimous verdict was returned in favor of the emergency medicine attending physician.

Concetta Lomanto, Esq. has over 30 years of experience in obtaining successful defense verdicts for physicians and hospitals who have been accused of medical malpractice.
