Ed Arevalo and Nicole Martone Secure a Summary Judgement Win 

On December 6, 2023, Ed Arevalo and Nicole Martone won summary judgment in a medical malpractice case venued in Suffolk County on behalf of two emergency room physicians and a nurse practitioner. Plaintiff alleged that defendants were negligent in failing to diagnose and treat sepsis in a foot wound, allowing and permitting the infection to worsen and spread leading to multiple surgeries/procedures, osteomyelitis and contamination of spinal hardware. The Court granted our motion, finding that we established a prima facie case of entitlement to summary judgment by demonstrating through our unrefuted expert affirmations, the absence of a deviation or departure from good and accepted standards of practice in the medical treatment rendered to plaintiff, in addition to a lack of causation to plaintiff’s alleged injuries.
