David Camarotto and Christine Hinrichs Obtain Medical Malpractice Jury Defense Verdict


David E. Camarotto and Christine E. Hinrichs obtained a jury defense verdict in a wrongful death/medical malpractice matter. The plaintiffs alleged that a family practice physician had an obligation to prescribe opioid medications to a new patient and that her decision to refer the patient to the prior prescribers of those medications was negligent and the cause of the patient’s subsequent cardiopulmonary arrest and death. The jury deliberated for less than one hour, and returned a verdict finding no negligence on the part of the physician.
