Gregory Young of Hinkle Law Firm, LLC, Wichita, Kansas, recently completed a four week jury trial involving the defense of three physicians.  The defendant physicians were resident physicians at the time of the care of the patient in 2013 at Wesley Medical Center, a teaching hospital.  The defendant physicians included a general surgery resident, who performed the majority of a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair and provided the post-operative care, as well as two radiology residents that assisted in the interpretation of a post-operative abdominal series and CT scan.  Plaintiff sued seven physicians alleging that he suffered a bowel perforation that was not timely recognized, diagnosed and repaired, which caused him to develop overwhelming septic shock and nearly 14 months of hospitalization.  The plaintiff asked the jury to award $3.7 million in medical expenses as well as pain and suffering and loss of consortium.  After a four week jury trial, the jury concluded that all seven defendants had met the appropriate standard of care and/or did not cause injury, resulting in a “no fault” verdict. Mark Maloney of Hinkle served as co-lead counsel with Greg in the case.
