Josepher & Batteese, P.A. Obtain Defense Verdict
Ron Josepher and Ted Gale secured a defense verdict for a general surgeon in a medical malpractice case in Hillsborough County. The plaintiff, a male in his late twenties, claimed that the surgeon had improperly placed trocars to secure access when performing a laparoscopic appendectomy, and had caused a nerve injury resulting in permanent testicular and groin pain. At trial, the defense established that the surgeon’s surgical techniques were appropriate, and that he exercised appropriate care in both his determination as to where to place the trocars, and his execution of that placement.
