$400,000 Recovery for Victim of Medical Malpractice


Dawn M. Pinnisi secured a $400,000.00 settlement for the family of a victim of medical malpractice. The victim, a 51 year old male who had a prior history of mental illness, presented to the emergency room of a New York City run hospital with psychiatric complaints. Instead of being admitted to the hospital for evaluation, the man was negligently discharged and he was later found in a subway tunnel, having been struck by a train. The case was litigated in Kings County Supreme Court, New York and settled prior to trial in June 2017.
