Defense Verdict in Five-day Medical Negligence Trial

Obtained a defense verdict in Delaware following a five-day medical negligence trial. ​The 54-year-old patient died three days after gallbladder surgery while still hospitalized. The plaintiffs alleged that post-operative bleeding, which required re-operation, rather than the transfusions and fluids she received, caused the decedent’s death. The defense disputed both the doctor's alleged negligence and causation, asserting that the physician treated this patient appropriately and that the patient died because of previously undiagnosed coronary artery disease, discovered during autopsy, rather than post-operative bleeding. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the physician on standard of care.
