Mark Whitmore Receives Medical Malpractice Jury Defense Verdict


Bassford Remele shareholder Mark R. Whitmore recently received a defense verdict in a jury trial venued in Hennepin County District Court. The medical malpractice lawsuit alleged that the firm’s client, a podiatric surgeon, negligently performed an ankle fusion surgery which allowed certain hardware to fail and cause pain throughout the patient’s foot. The Plaintiff sought a verdict of more than $1.1 million. However, the jury disagreed with the Plaintiff’s theory, found that the physician was not negligent, and that the Plaintiff had not experienced any damages as a result of the physician’s treatment.
