Alan J. Fumuso Secures Defense Verdict in Kings County

Alan J. Fumuso obtained a defense verdict on an Oral Surgery case tried in Kings County in August of 2014. The case involved damage to the Plaintiff’s Lingual Nerve, and alleged lack of Informed Consent, during the removal of an impacted wisdom tooth. The damaged nerve required subsequent surgical anastomotic repair, and the 55 year old female plaintiff alleged continuing and permanent complaints of numbness, dysesthesia and loss of taste on the right side of her tongue. At the end of a highly contested trial, plaintiff’s counsel asked the jury during summation to award his client $700,000 in damages. The jury of three men and three women deliberated one hour before returning a unanimous verdict on behalf of the defendant.
