Gibli v. Kadosh, 279 A.D.2d 235 (2000) (New York Law Journal; Class Action Reporter)
In this dental malpractice action, our client signed a release approximately one month after a surgical procedure that involved the extraction of a third molar. During that procedure, our client’s lingual nerve was severed, causing permanent and irreparable parasthesia. The Appellate Division held that the validity of the release was for the jury to decide. After a five-day trial, our client received an unusually high verdict for a dental malpractice claim.
