Defense Verdict in Medical Malpractice Case

SLS attorney Jim Myers defended an interventional radiologist in a jury trial in the Circuit Court of Clay County, Missouri in May 2016. SLS’s client performed a blood patch on plaintiff in an attempt to lessen the side effects of a spinal tap performed by another physician to test for meningitis. Plaintiff claimed the interventional radiologist performed the blood patch procedure in a negligent manner resulting in permanent nerve damage and neuromuscular weakness in her legs. Plaintiff asked the jury for $2,000,000. After 5 days of trial, the jury returned a defense verdict in favor of SLS’s client.
