Won a defense verdict in a Minnesota medical malpractice trial with millions of dollars at stake.
A WTO team led by Joe Farchione and Elizabeth Johnston was brought in to assist with the defense of a medical malpractice case in state court in Minnesota. The case involved allegations of medical malpractice after a doctor's spinal epidural injection of a steroid to treat back pain resulted in the plaintiff suffering paraplegia.
Before trial, the plaintiffs rejected our clients' offer of judgment of $4 million. Following close to two weeks of testimony, the jury deliberated for 11 hours over two days and returned with a unanimous defense verdict.
