Rockland County jury awarded $2.3 million to a Valley Cottage man who claimed the head of orthopedic surgery at Nyack Hospital left a serious infection untreated, causing irreparable damage and constant pain.
The jury in the medical malpractice lawsuit, filed in 2011, found Dr. Jason Fond liable for the botched treatment of 52-year-old John Antonucci, who claimed in court papers that he was sent home on Oct. 1, 2010, although test results showed that he suffered from a serious and painful bacterial infection.
