Defense Verdict in Medical Malpractice case in Oneida County for Michael P. Ringwood, Esq.

After a two and a half week medical malpractice jury trial in Oneida County, Utica NY, with Supreme Court Justice Bernadette Clark presiding, Michael Ringwood secured a unanimous verdict exonerating his two clients, emergency room physicians working out of Faxton-St Luke’s Hospital. The case involved medical care and treatment back in 2006 for a 55 year old male patient. The allegation claimed that despite indications and complaints consistent with an ischemic stroke, the emergency room physicians failed to order tests to rule out the condition and failed to admit the patient to the hospital. The patient suffered a major stroke three weeks subsequent to the emergency room care.
