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

Frith Anderson + Peake attorneys, Walt Peake and Matt Kelley, earned a defense verdict in the Circuit Court for Campbell County in Rustburg, Virginia. At the close of a three day trial, the jury found in favor of the defendant physician assistant and his employer who the plaintiff claimed improperly irrigated an abdominal puncture wound with Hibiclens. The jury heard evidence from defense experts proving that the irrigation technique was proper and that the plaintiff’s claimed abdominal wound was caused by trauma and infection induced fat necrosis not a chemical burn.
