Congratulations to Zach Nastro for a $15,000 verdict in Westchester County on May 6, 2019, in the case of Edward Carter v. Catalino Ramos (Index Number: 55298/2013). The plaintiff underwent right shoulder arthroscopic surgery on January 21, 2013, with Dr. Emmanuel Hostin. The plaintiff also underwent an anterior discectomy and fusion on February 23, 2015, performed by Dr. Michael Gerling. Due to post-surgery complications, the plaintiff developed a seroma, for which Dr. Gerling performed a second surgery on March 5, 2015. During closing arguments, the plaintiff requested $242,000 in past medical expenses; $1.2 million - $1.4 million in future medical expenses; $1.75 million - $2.5 million in past pain and suffering; and $3 million - $5 million in future pain and suffering. The jury returned a verdict of $5,000 for past pain and suffering; $0 for future pain and suffering; and $10,000 for medical expenses.
