Douglas J. Swart Secures Defense Verdict in Suffolk County

In October 2008, Douglas J. Swart obtained a defense verdict on behalf of his client in a trial before Judge Roy Mahon in Supreme Court, Suffolk County. The action was brought by a then thirty-two year old married mother of three, who was employed as an occupational therapist, alleging that the defendant internist was negligent in failing to timely refer the patient to a rheumatologist resulting in a worsening of the patient’s psoriatic arthritis. After approximately three hours of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant physician.
