RON HERBERT AND TODD ANDERSON RETAIN DEFENSE WIN ON APPEAL

 

In April, the Supreme Court of Virginia unanimously upheld Ron and Todd’s defense verdict in a suit claiming negligent management of hypotension resulting in a spinal nerve root injury and partial paralysis.  At trial, the court refused the plaintiff’s jury instruction seeking to hold the physician liable for “all the consequences of [his] negligence, whether foreseen or not.”  The Supreme Court found this language to be a “strict liability instruction and an inaccurate statement of Virginia tort law,” thus it was properly refused.  For a discussion of the case and Ron’s quote with respect to preserving objections, Click Here
