Dr. Diane Lombardy’s Story

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Hill & Moin LLP helped this ER doctor get through her own emergency.

Diane Lombardy, an emergency room doctor and pediatrician from Great Neck, NY, fell shortly after her 56th birthday as a result of bad lighting conditions at the home of an acquaintance. Dr. Lombardy picked her daughter up from a play date in New Hyde Park around 11:30 p.m. one night. As Dr. Lombardy walked down the stairs outside the home, she could not see because there was no exterior light, and the only source of light, coming from inside the home, was cut off once the front door was closed. She missed a step, fell, and broke her nose, wrists, elbow, and knee and sustained a gash across her forehead, which required stitches. The doctor who was used to treating others found herself in the emergency room, facing the possibility of knee replacement surgery.

Myra Heller’s Story

Monday, June 14th, 2010

An active senior and her husband were devastated by a fall, but Hill & Moin LLP got them compensation.

Myra Heller was an active 82-year-old woman when a sidewalk defect caused her to fall. She was entering the Long Island Railroad Station near Penn Station, planning to go to an art show at the Nassau County Museum with a friend, when she tripped over a depression in the sidewalk, about an inch and a half deep. The fall broke her shoulder, but she managed to go into the station to get help from the Long Island Railroad police. The fall required shoulder replacement surgery, and she ended up spending more than four weeks in the hospital, where she contracted a staph infection; Myra is permanently disabled from her injury.
