Josepher & Batteese, P.A. Obtain Defense Verdict
Tyler Batteese and Ron Josepher secured a defense verdict in a two-week trial for a pediatric cardiologist who was accused of inappropriately performing a cardiac catheterization on a three-day old infant which lead to complications resulting in the amputation of the infant’s right leg. The child was five at the time of trial. He and his mother were both very sympathetic witnesses. However, the defense was able to demonstrate that the cardiologist was correct in the judgment to perform the catheterization in order to rule out potentially fatal congenital cardiac abnormalities that the child showed some indication of on other studies.
