Business Law & Litigation
Medical Malpractice Defense
Defense Verdict for Radiologist
The patient’s family asked the jury to award $2.3 million in damages. The jury returned a defense verdict in favor of Jim and Rachael’s client in less than an hour. Our defense claimed the patient was properly advised of the risks of the procedure, denied that the interventional radiologist breached the standard of care, and argued that the patient’s death was caused by other factors not related to the bone cement lodged in her heart and lungs.
$1.4 Million Jury Verdict
Breach of Non-Compete and Slander
A physician left the employment of Jim’s client and immediately began to breach his non-compete agreement. When Jim's client advised the physician that they would be filing suit to enforce the non-compete agreement, the physician made false statements about his former employer alleged billing irregularities to both the company’s long-time customers and the Office of the Inspector General of HHS, prompting an investigation. After a week-long jury trial in Jackson County, Missouri the jury returned a verdict in favor of Jim’s client and against the physician.
Verdict Defense for OBGYNs
The patient, age 23, presented to the ER with abdominal pain. An OBGYN consult was requested as the ER was concerned the patient might have an ovarian cyst. The patient later sued the OBGYNs for failure to diagnose the burst appendix. Jim argued there was no evidence that the appendix had burst at the time his clients consulted in the treatment of the patient and that appendicitis can have a rapid onset. After 7 days of trial, the jury returned a defense verdict in favor of Jim’s clients.
