Dan and Heather successfully argued that all aspects of the physicians’ care met, and exceeded, the standard of care. They were able to show the jury that no act or omission on the part of their physician client caused or contributed to any of Plaintiff’s alleged injuries.During closing arguments, Plaintiff sought $3-5,000,000 in damages. The jury deliberated for less than one hour, rendering a defense verdict.
