Saxton & Stump Secures Defense Verdict After Less Than 30 Minutes of Deliberations In a Case Involving a Fall of a Patient

Jun 14, 2022 | Defense Verdicts, Healthcare Litigation and Mitigation

Saxton & Stump secured a defense verdict in a case against a hospital involving a fall of a patient while admitted to the hospital. Plaintiff claimed that the hospital failed to institute proper fall risk interventions. Through strong expert support on liability and our client’s testimony, we showed that all efforts were made to ensure the patient’s safety, all reasonable fall precautions were in place, and the care provided by the nurses and hospital were well within the standard of care. After less than 30 minutes of deliberations, the jury returned a verdict in favor of our hospital finding no negligence.
