Bob Goldstucker and Mike Davis obtain defense verdict
In December, Nall & Miller partner Bob Goldstucker and associate Mike Davis obtained a defense verdict at trial in the State Court of Forsyth County, Cumming, Georgia.
In the case, the plaintiff alleged that the defendant physician mishandled a simple surgical procedure which resulted in a deep bone infection (osteomyelitis), $260,000 in subsequent medical bills, several additional surgeries, chronic pain, and permanent limitation. The case was defended on the basis that the defendant met the standard of care and that the plaintiff was non-compliant with various doctors’ instructions, thereby becoming the architect of her own misfortune. Reflecting the preparation and positive relationship between the doctor and her Nall & Miller attorneys, the defendant doctor’s confidence and competence was evident when she testified. Taking negative accusations and presenting the evidence in way that truly demonstrated the doctor’s ability not only resulted in a defense verdict, but several jurors commented after trial that they would seek out the doctor if they had a medical issue in her specialty.
