Trifecta of Defense Verdicts
May 5, 2022
Garson & Jakub LLP is pleased to report several recent jury trial successes in the “new normal” of COVID restrictions in the courtroom. Masking jurors’ faces, as well as the witnesses, parties, and attorneys, has added a new hurdle in overcoming the emotional appeal in the catastrophic damages trials we have been defending.
We have achieved three defense verdicts in a row: Andrew Garson successfully defended a neurosurgeon accused of failing to recognize and properly treat hydrocephalus and an obstructed intraventricular shunt in a young woman, who experienced brain damage and permanent neurologic impairments. Several weeks earlier, Mr. Garson obtained a verdict on behalf of a pain management specialist accused of causing spinal injuries when administering a corticosteroid injection. Michael Morris obtained a great result in Brooklyn this week, when a jury exonerated his client in a claim arising from improperly prescribed medication in a 57-year-old father of 3, causing a debilitating abscess in the spine requiring months of hospitalization over a two-year period before his death.
