Alan J. Fumuso Secures Defense Verdict in Nassau County

In January 2006, Alan J. Fumuso obtained a defendant’s verdict on behalf of his client, an anesthesiologist, following a two week trial in Supreme Court Nassau County before Judge Geoffrey O’Connell. The plaintiff, a 70 year old woman, alleged that the defendant permanently damaged her vocal cords during 5 unsuccessful attempts at intubation for a surgical procedure. The jury found unanimously for the defendant, finding that he conformed to accepted practices and also that the plaintiff’s vocal cords were probably damaged in a subsequent surgical procedure.
