Unanimous Defense Verdict for Magrath and Brown
On August 8, 2023, Lashly & Baer attorneys William Magrath and Riley Brown obtained a unanimous defense verdict for their clients. Plaintiff claimed the Defendants were medically negligent in not explicitly warning him to protect his numb limb from extremes of hot and cold after administering a popliteal nerve block. Plaintiff burned his foot on a car heater leading to an amputation. Defendants denied any negligence and challenged Plaintiff’s theory of causation. The St. Louis County jury deliberated for less than an hour.
