On July 19, 2017, after a two-week jury trial in Rochester, New York, Lipsitz & Ponterio attorney Michael Ponterio obtained a $1.2 million dollar jury verdict in a medical malpractice lawsuit, on behalf of our client, against physicians from the University of Rochester Medical Center.

The jury found that two of our client’s treating physicians failed to timely diagnose her bowel perforation until she was in septic shock and near death. As a result of the doctors’ negligence, she was forced to undergo nine corrective surgical procedures, two skin grafts, a major surgery to close up her abdominal wounds and forty-seven in-home visits to suction out fluid from her abdomen resulting from the doctors’ negligence. 

The Honorable Matthew A. Rosenbaum presided over the jury trial.
