WTO wins complete defense verdict in $18 million obstetrical malpractice case


A WTO team led by Joe Farchione won a complete defense verdict in a medical malpractice trial in Youngstown, Ohio. The case involved allegations that WTO's client, an obstetrician, acted negligently, resulting in catastrophic injuries to a newborn who now requires 24/7 care.
