Defense Verdict in Connecticut

On behalf of a major Connecticut hospital, Madonna A. Sacco and Nancy M. Marini received a defense verdict in Stamford Superior Court in a medical malpractice action.

Plaintiff, a dentist, claimed that he suffered permanent nerve damage to his upper extremity as a result of a negligently performed IV insertion after an emergency appendectomy. The defense argued that the nurse met the standard of care in inserting the IV and that if the plaintiff suffered any damage it was as a result of underlying Parsonage Turner Syndrome.

After a six-week trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the hospital in under two hours.
