Pretzel & Stouffer Wins Victory for Surgeon’s Estate in Leg Amputation Case

Timothy A. Weaver and Michael A. Barry achieved a defense trial victory for the estate of a surgeon in a leg amputation case. The surgeon, who is now deceased, was accused of targeting the wrong vessel during his arterial bypass procedure on a patient whose blood flow to her leg was blocked by clots. The bypass failed to restore blood flow, so the patient had to undergo an above-the-knee amputation. The defense contended that the surgeon had performed the correct bypass and that the leg was not salvageable. The plaintiff asked the jury for between $3.8 million and $4.8 million.
