The claimed errors in the verdict sheet are not preserved for appellate review since plaintiffs did not object thereto (CPLR 4110-b; see Suria v Shiffman, 67 NY2d 87, 97 ), and we decline to review them (see Pagnotta v Diamond, 51 AD3d 1099, 1100 ). In any event, nothing in the record or verdict indicates that the jury was confused by the wording of the interrogatories (cf. e.g. Herbert H. Post & Co. v Sidney Bitterman, Inc., 219 AD2d 214, 223 ), and no issues were raised as to general negligence (see McKoy v County of Westchester, 272 AD2d 307 ; Wahler v Lockport Physical Therapy, 275 AD2d 906 , lv denied 96 NY2d 701 ) or res ipsa loquitur (see Kruck v St. John's Episcopal Hosp., 228 AD2d 565 ) that should have been charged and submitted to the jury.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
