Another Verdict in favor of our client…

Last Friday, a Franklin County jury returned a verdict in favor of our client, a pediatric surgeon, at one of the most prestigious Children’s Hospitals in the County.  Plaintiffs alleged our client fell below the standard of care in placing a PEG feeding tube and, then, in exchanging the feeding tube to a button or skin level feeding device.  The child suffered from severe neurological disease and multiple medical problems.  As a result of the complications with a the feeding tubes, the child developed peritonitis.  Plaintiffs further alleged that following the development of peritonitis, she developed pseudo bowel obstructions that plagued her the rest of her life.  The jury returned a verdict, rejecting all claims shortly after beginning deliberations.
