Trial partner John Dughi secured a defense verdict on behalf of a defendant neuroradiologist alleged to have injured the plaintiff’s nerve root during a lumbar puncture, resulting in permanent and severe back pain and headaches. The plaintiff was a 43-year-old married father of four and former high school and Ivy League scholar-athlete, claiming these injuries interfered with essentially all aspects of his life, from his career to his family life, and prevented him from engaging in any physical and athletic activities. Plaintiff’s last settlement demand was $5,000,000. Cyndee Allert sat second chair to Mr. Dughi in securing the win. The case was tried to a jury in the Union County Superior Court over the course of 7 trial days. Wolfe v. Volvovsky, Docket No. UNN-L-3204-14.
