Associate Amanda E. Spinner Obtains Summary Judgment in a Medical Malpractice Case

Associate attorney Amanda E. Spinner recently obtained summary judgment in favor of two Long Island Surgeons in a medical malpractice case pending in the Supreme Court of Nassau County.  The matter concerned allegations that defendants failed to timely diagnose and treat a postoperative stroke in a 65 year old female.  Plaintiff claimed the defendants failed to deem her a high risk for stroke given her age and past medical history, failed to abort the colon resection surgery given plaintiff’s elevated blood pressure, and failed to timely treat the stroke.  Amanda argued that the care and treatment rendered by her physicians did not deviate from the good and accepted standards of medical care and that their treatment was not the proximate cause of plaintiff’s stroke and subsequent injuries. The Court agreed and found that plaintiff could not establish that failure to abort surgery due to elevated blood pressure was the proximate cause of plaintiff’s embolic stroke.
