10/01/1996
Client:

Defendant Pulmonologist

Outcome:

Defense Verdict

Synopsis:

Plaintiff, a 63-year-old male suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, filed suit against his pulmonologist, alleging that the doctor had failed to diagnose and treat the patient’s diabetes, and that as a result, the patient ultimately lost his leg above the knee.

The defense was premised upon evidence that the patient’s diabetes was drug induced, and that blood sugar monitoring was unnecessary.

Plaintiff sought $1.8 million. The jury returned a defense verdict.
