RECORD SCOTT COUNTY JURY VERDICT-$2.4 MILLION IN MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE-SHAKOPEE INJURY LAWYERS

RECORD- SCOTT COUNTY JURY VERDICT-$2.4 MILLION IN MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE.

Shakopee Injury Lawyer Douglas E. Schmidt successfully prosecuted a medical malpractice case to a jury in a hard fought trial in Shakopee Minnesota.  The case was tried before Judge and Jury for a week.  The jury returned a verdict in favor of Schmidt’s client.

Schmidt’s client was the patient of a Shakopee surgeon who performed a cholecystectomy (gall bladder) surgery.   At the conclusion of the surgery, the surgeon attempted to install a central venous catheter.  The jury determined that the surgeon did so negligently, causing damage to lead to stroke-like symptoms.

The trial lasted an entire week.  The Defense presented expert witnesses to dispute Schmidt’s claim that the surgeon was negligent, including a member of the teaching faculty of the U of Minnesota Medical School.

The jury ultimately decided in favor of Schmidt’s client and returned a verdict of malpractice.
