On November 21, 2019 a Richmond County, NY, jury returned a verdict in favor of KBN’s client, a vascular surgeon who was accused of malpractice stemming from a June, 2012 angiogram. KBN partner Louis E. Valvo successfully defended the vascular surgeon and presented evidence that the surgeon conducted the procedure and the follow-up treatment professionally and within the standards of care. The plaintiff presented an expert in the field of vascular surgery. However, under cross-examination by Mr. Valvo, the plaintiff’s expert conceded that KBN’s client did not depart from the applicable standard of care. After a three week trial, the jury returned a verdict for the defense. KBN partner Kenneth Bierman and associate Kara Suddock assisted in defending the vascular surgeon.
