Alfred P. Vigorito secures unanimous defense verdict

On July 17, 2018, Senior Partner Alfred P. Vigorito secured a unanimous defense verdict on behalf of his clients, a major Westchester based hospital system and a board certified gastroenterologist. The case was tried before Judge David Everett and a jury in Westchester Supreme Court. Plaintiff claimed the defendants failed to diagnose and treat an upper GI bleed, leading to the death of a 64 year old male.  After a three week trial, the jury took just 87 minutes to deliver its verdict. The jury did not request to view any of the more than 25 exhibits, nor did they ask for any read back of trial testimony. This is Mr. Vigorito’s second consecutive unanimous defense verdict within the past 6 months.
