WVS congratulations Terry O’Toole and team for a defense verdict in St. Louis County Circuit Court.
In this case, the plaintiff alleged that an emergency medicine physician and the hospital facility nursing staff wrongfully administered thrombolytic medication to treat an ischemic stroke. Plaintiff alleged this led to the patient having a hemorrhagic stroke and, ultimately, his death.
Plaintiff alleged $173,000 in past medical bills and funeral expenses and asked for an award of $750,000.
After a five day trial, the jury found for the defendants, the emergency medicine physician and the hospital nursing staff and awarded no damages.
