Trial Win for James A. Resila in Orthodontic Malpractice Action


Director James A. Resila recently obtained a defense verdict in an orthodontic malpractice action venued in Albany County Supreme Court.  The plaintiff, who was 14-15 at the time of the alleged malpractice, claimed that Mr. Resila’s client, an orthodontist, committed malpractice, causing her to lose her upper front six permanent teeth.

After a jury trial, the jury found that the plaintiff had no cause of action against Mr. Resila’s client and dismissed the plaintiff’s case.

James A. Resila’s practice focuses on the defense of medical malpractice and general negligence cases, as well as the defense of municipalities in federal civil rights cases.
