Friedman Attorneys Obtain Defense Verdict In Medical Malpractice Lawsuit On Behalf Of Orthopedic Surgeon

Attorneys Joel Williams and Jim Moss defended an orthopedic surgeon in the Circuit Court of Lauderdale County in May 2018. The patient suffered a fractured greater trochanter and a femoral nerve palsy injury during an anterior approach total hip replacement surgery. Four years later she was still using a wheelchair and claimed severe persistent pain. The Plaintiff claimed lack of informed consent and negligent placement of retractors as well as inadequate assistance during the procedure. The defense demonstrated that these were known complications of the procedure that occurred despite reasonable skill, care and diligence and this physician had informed the Plaintiff of these risks. After 7 days of trial, the jury returned a defense verdict in about 45 minutes.
