Successful Defense of Cardiothoracic Surgeon
Obtained a unanimous defense verdict on all counts after a five-week medical malpractice trial on behalf of a cardiothoracic surgeon. The suit against the surgeon and co-defendants alleged deviations from the standard of care relating to the diagnosis, management and treatment of a post catheterization femoral bleed, resulting in permanent disability, nerve damage, pain and atrophy. During cross examination of the plaintiff's surgery and cardiology experts, the defense elicited testimony directly contradicting their respective reports and deposition/trial testimony. After 43 minutes of deliberations, the jury returned a unanimous defense verdict on all counts (7-0).
