FAVROS Obtains Two Defense Verdicts in the Same Month

November 16, 2021

Congratulations to Jake Winfrey, Todd Reichert and the FAVROS Law litigation team who received a defense verdict in the case of Winston v. Highline Medical Center. Plaintiff claimed that an ER physician negligently failed to diagnose a blood clot in the man's leg, which led to the development of severe ischemia and the amputation of the leg.  The jury agreed with our defense that the blood clot did not exist at the time the patient arrived at the emergency department, but rather, developed later in the day and therefore the injuries were not caused by the emergency room physician’s alleged negligence.

Congratulations to Michele Atkins, Eric Norman and the FAVROS Law litigation team, who received a defense verdict in the case of Michel v. UWMC. Plaintiff claimed that during inner ear surgery, a neurotologist negligently drilled into the brain and injured an artery leading to intracranial hemorrhage and stroke. The jury agreed with the defense that the injury was a known (but rare) potential complication of this surgery and not the result of negligence.
