Heath D. Harte, an attorney-at-law with over twenty-five years of experience practicing in Connecticut and New York, released a statement today commenting on the recent ruling in a high-profile medical malpractice case out of Kansas City.
According to the http://www.kansascity.com/2014/04/06/4941837/pain-clinic-faces-steep-penalty.html [Kansas City Star] (Johnson County jury awards $2.88 million in malpractice case against pain clinic, 4/6/2014), a jury awarded the plaintiffs in a malpractice lawsuit against a Kansas City pain clinic $2.88 million after it was found that a doctor at the clinic either overlooked or ignored swelling that was present before he administered a steroid injection to a patient who later developed meningitis and a painful nerve condition in his spine. According to the report, the patient later took his own life as a result of his condition, which was the contention made in the suit filed against the clinic.
“This ruling could have potentially far reaching implications for other malpractice and personal injury litigation in the future,” said Heath D. Harte. “The size of this award is especially telling as to how compelling the facts of the case were, as they were presented in court. All indications are that this ruling will result in a conversation being started on how lawyers approach cases like this in the future.”
