Diana M.A. Carnemolla began her legal career at Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf in 1989. Motivated by her desire to make more of an impact as an advocate for the catastrophically injured, she continued to work full-time as a paralegal at the firm while attending law school at night. Upon joining the firm as a lawyer in 1997, Ms. Carnemolla continued to work on all aspects of pre-trial preparation of complex medical malpractice cases and major injury litigation, especially in cases involving women and children.
Over the years, Ms. Carnemolla has handled numerous personal injury cases, including motor vehicle accidents, trip and fall, labor law claims, and medical negligence, that resulted in recoveries of multi-millions of dollars. In Erie county, she oversaw a medical malpractice action where the defendant medical personnel failed to timely perform a Cesarean section of an infant, who was caused to suffer brain damage. That case settled out of court for the sum of $8.5 million dollars. In another case that Ms. Carnemolla handled, it was claimed that the anesthesiologist improperly administered anesthesia to the patient during a delivery and caused her to suffer brain damage. That case settled for $7 million dollars. She also oversaw a breast cancer case where a breast surgeon and mammographer did not work-up a suspicious mass found by mammography. After Ms. Carnemolla mediated the case, it settled for 1.4 million dollars.
As an integral part of one of the GGCRBHS&M litigation teams, Ms. Carnemolla's involvement includes all aspects of case investigation, consulting with and retaining experts, client and witness interviews, drafting and overseeing pleadings, writing and arguing motions, plaintiffs' and defendants' examinations before trial, court appearances and trial preparation.
