FA+P’s Medical Malpractice Team Earns Another Defense Verdict

Frith Anderson + Peake attorneys, Walt Peake and Matt Kelley, earned a defense verdict in the Roanoke City Circuit Court in Roanoke, Virginia.  At the close of a five day trial, the jury found in favor of the defendant physician who the plaintiff claimed had left hemostatic agent in her cervical spine that swelled to cause spinal cord compression.  The jury heard evidence from defense experts proving that the plaintiff’s claimed injuries were not caused by the defendant’s surgical actions. Under the defense theory, the plaintiff’s claimed injuries were caused by a series of hypotensive episodes during surgery not the actions or inactions of the defendant physician.
