Verdicts/Settlements (Case Results):
  • Trial: Plaintiffs alleged kidney failure from Asacol, a medication used to treat the patient’s ulcerative colitis.  During a flare-up of the ulcerative colitis, blood work was taken which demonstrated an elevated creatinine.  Our PA client examined the patient and attributed the patient’s abnormal renal labs to mild dehydration from the ulcerative colitis flare.  Plaintiffs alleged the renal labs required a work up for Asacol toxicity.  The alleged injury from the Asacol was stage III chronic kidney disease and progression of the disease to end stage renal failure requiring dialysis and a kidney transplant.  Plaintiffs sought $11.2 million on closing argument.  We represented the PA and her employer, the medical practice. Result: Defense verdict.  The verdict was not appealed., 2017
  • Trial: Plaintiff alleged Defendant neurosurgeon failed to timely identify “implant failure” on MRI images during the course of care following ACDF in 2005.  A subsequent surgeon removed the plate and screws and performed ACDF at an additional level.  It was alleged a 5 plus year delay resulted in causing the patient constant excruciating pain and suffering. Result:  Defense verdict.  No appeal was filed., 2018
  • Trial: Death of a 70 year old male patient two weeks post CABG from an alleged pleural effusion.  Plaintiff alleged a called rapid response should have resulted in an emergency intubation and chest tube placement.  We represented the CT surgeon and argued the patient’s rapid response was the result of over sedation from Restoril, as proven by the patient’s prompt recovery after receiving reversal agent medication. Result: Defense verdict. No appeal was filed., 2017
  • Trial: Death of a 65 year old male patient three days after a gallbladder ultrasound reporting a 5 cm diameter aortic aneurysm.  Plaintiff alleged the aortic aneurysm should have been measured as 9-10 cm in diameter which would have resulted in an emergency aortic repair, prior to the aorta rupturing three days after the ultrasound.  We represented the radiologist who interpreted the ultrasound. Result: Defense verdict. No appeal was filed., 2017
