After a lengthy battle with the lawyers and insurance carriers for local doctors accused of medical malpractice, LIPSITZ & PONTERIO has obtained a cash settlement for a thirteen-year-old Niagara County girl suffering from severe learning disabilities.

At the start of surgery, the patient’s breathing tube was lodged in the lung interfering with the flow of oxygen. The doctors should have discovered this problem and repositioned the tube. Unfortunately, they failed to do so despite significant warning signs of distress. During the course of administering anesthesia, the girl’s oxygen levels dropped significantly, leading to irreversible brain damage and learning disabilities.

We were privileged to represent this family in their lawsuit for medical malpractice. The attorneys at LIPSITZ & PONTERIO represent the victims of medical malpractice in cases where the injuries are serious and permanent and the evidence of negligence is strong and clear.
