Alan J. Fumuso Secures Defense Verdict in Bronx County

In January 2007, Alan J. Fumuso obtained a defense verdict on behalf of his Oral Surgery client after a two week trial in Supreme Court Bronx County before Judge Dianne Renwick. The matter involved a claim by the 33 year old male plaintiff that the defendant severed his mental nerve during the course of an apicoectomy, resulting in permanent numbness to his lip, chin and gum. The jury found that the defendant conformed to accepted practices, that the nerve was only partially injured, and that the injury was a complication of the procedure.
