Arbitration Victory

Brendan J. Alt, Esq. recently prevailed at an arbitration involving the apportionment of liability in a medical malpractice case on behalf of a major teaching hospital in Westchester County.  This wrongful death case involved an alleged failure to properly treat a young adult patient who presented to the emergency department in an active sickle cell crisis.  The case resolved pre-trial and the defendants proceeded to arbitration for a binding decision on the percentage allocation of the global settlement.  The arbitrator decided that the defendant Hospital owed a significantly lower percentage than the co-defendants.
