The Verdict is In

Concetta Lomanto of Maynard, O’Connor, Smith & Catalinotto, LLP represented a local physician at a recent trial in Albany County Supreme Court in Albany, New York and once again justice prevailed. Complex issues of medicine in this personal injury action involved a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a common urological condition that occurs as men get older as the prostate enlarges. This case involved expert testimony in urology, cardiology and nephrology, including difficult cross examinations. The central issue of the case was whether the physician monitored the patient closely enough so that the patient’s complete kidney failure could have been avoided. After a nearly 2-week trial, the unanimous verdict was returned in favor of the Maynard, O’Connor & Smith & Catalinotto, LLP client.
