Appellate Win for Attorney Robert A. Lifson, former Justice of the Appellate Division

Attorney Robert A. Lifson, former Justice of the Appellate Division 2nd Dept, successfully defended the order obtained by Partner F. Sean Rooney which dismissed all claims against the four named defendants (each separately represented).  The underlying complaint alleged that the plaintiff was the surviving spouse of the decedent who was injured in an automobile accident which required medical intervention.  At the time of the accident the patient suffered from other medical conditions which impaired his capacity to recover quickly from the medical procedures initiated.  The defendant medical care providers each proved successfully that they had all rendered adequate medical care (given the then existing condition of the patient).  The plaintiff was unable to give credible proof to raise an issue of fact as to the adequacy of care rendered the patient.  The Appellate Court agreed with the lower courts analysis in full.
