Defendant’s Verdicts

Rogak, Gibbons & De Siver have obtained numerous Defendant’s verdicts in the major metropolitan areas of New York.

In  May of 2017, Joyce Lipton Rogak obtained a defendant’s verdict in a case involving an alleged failure to administer Lovenox to a patient.  It was claimed that the Plaintiff suffered a pulmonary embolism with permanent residual effects, including pulmonary hypertension and the need to be on continuous oxygen.  Joyce was able to show that while the pulmonary embolism may have been a complication of the Plaintiff’s surgery and lack of anti-coagulants, her client adhered to accepted medical standards  in treating the patient.  She further showed that the pulmonary embolism did not result in any permanent effects.

In April of 2016, Florence Gibbons obtained a defendant’s verdict in Queens, in a case involving a claim of brain damage to an infant.  It was Plaintiff’s theory that the baby was delivered improperly by her Obstetrician, causing an ischemic stroke.  Ms. Gibbons defended the case by demonstrating that the techniques used for the delivery were proper, and that Plaintiff’s theory  was not plausible.
