$14,630,842.57 Verdict | Medical Malpractice
The firm, along with attorneys Terry Finger and Andrew Scherffius, represented Gayle and Thomas Taylor in an action for medical malpractice and unfair trade practices against Rajko D. Medenica, M.D. and his laboratory, Cancer Immuno-Biology Laboratory, Inc for injuries Mrs. Taylor sustained as a result of her chemotherapy treatment. The firm proved Dr. Medenica violated the standard of care in prescribing Mitomycin-C, a drug with potentially fatal side effects, as part of Mrs. Taylorís chemotherapy regime and for billing the Taylors for laboratory tests that were not warranted. Following a multi-week jury trial, the Taylorís received a verdict of $14,630,842.57. The verdict was sustained on appeal.
