Supreme Court, Ulster County

In this three-week trial the plaintiff alleged that the defendant emergency room physician and physician’s assistant had failed to diagnose and treat a ruptured arteriovenous malformation in her brain on an emergency room visit after she fell off her boat and was submerged for a short time. The defense contended that the plaintiff had no neurological signs, symptoms or complaints while under the care of the defendants, and that her problem didn’t develop until after she left their emergency room. The next day she went to a different emergency room where she gave a history of her symptoms beginning after she had left the defendants’ care. Demand: $950,000.

Result : Defense verdict.
Defense Attorney : For the defense: Sarah E. Sholes.
