Representative Case :

  • At trial, plaintiff argued that plaintiff should have been placed in an ICU, that the respiratory therapist was negligent in leaving the room, that the nebulizer treatment caused the heart attack, and that if the therapist had closely monitored plaintiff, he would have been revived sooner, thereby preventing his anoxic brain injury and death.
  • We argued that the nebulizer treatment did not cause the heart attack, and that the outcome would have been the same if plaintiff had been in the ICU with a respiratory therapist present, based on statistics for elderly patients with chronic medical problems.
  • The trial lasted 3.5 weeks. Plaintiff asked the jury for $2.8 million. The hospital offered $350,000, but pulled the offer minutes before the verdict. The jury deliberated for 4.5 hours, and rendered a not guilty verdict in favor of all defendants.
