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.
