Medical Malpractice Defense Verdict in East Texas ◦ Health Care
October 28, 2013
Doug Lewis and Kimberly K. Bocell secured a unanimous defense verdict for a Sulpher Springs orthopedic surgeon in Hopkins County, Texas. The plaintiff alleged that the surgeon fused her ankle in the wrong position during a repeat fusion surgery after she had undergone three other surgeries by different surgeons following a serious motor vehicle accident which shattered her ankle. The jury returned a unanimous verdict for the physician after just fifteen minutes of deliberations, finding 100% fault on the part of the plaintiff due to non-compliance.
