November 16, 2021

FAVROS|LAW wins its 6th straight trial in 2017.  On October 12, 2017, Scott O’Halloran, Michele Atkins and the FAVROS|LAW litigation team won a defense verdict on behalf of their client, a family practice physician, in a medical malpractice and wrongful death case tried in Pierce County Superior Court.  Plaintiff, represented by the Connelly Law Office, claimed that the physician was negligent for failing to diagnose and treat the patient’s coronary artery disease resulting in sudden cardiac death.  Plaintiff asked for between $7 million and $11 million in compensation.  The defense demonstrated that the family physician conducted a complete and thorough medical work-up of his patient and fully complied with the standard of care on each and every visit with the patient.  The jury agreed that the doctor provided reasonably prudent care and returned a verdict in favor of the physician.
