Trial Win for John T. Maloney in Defense of Pediatric Cardiologist, Cardiology Practice


John T. Maloney successfully defended his clients during a three-week medical malpractice trial in Albany County Supreme Court before the Honorable Thomas J. McNamara.

Mr. Maloney’s clients, two pediatric cardiologists and their cardiology practice, and a separately-represented area hospital, were sued for negligence and medical malpractice by plaintiffs, the parents of an infant who had a thrombatic stroke while hospitalized for heart related symptoms, including a history of myocarditis and congestive heart failure.  Specifically, the plaintiffs claimed the defendants failed to timely administer an echocardiogram which would have detected the thrombatic stroke and failed to administer anti-coagulant therapy which would have prevented the infant plaintiff’s stroke.

The jury returned a no-cause for Mr. Maloney’s clients and the co-defendant hospital, finding that the defendants did not deviate from accepted standards of medical care and, as such, did not cause any injury to the infant plaintiff.
