JEFFREY NICHOLS SECURES DEFENSE VERDICT IN KINGS COUNTY SUPREME COURT

On February 2, 2018, Jeffrey Nichols obtained a unanimous defense verdict following a three week medical malpractice trial in Kings County Supreme Court.  The case involved the wrongful death of a 73 year old woman following shoulder replacement surgery.  Mr. Nichols represented a cardiologist who evaluated the patient prior to surgery and again seven hours before her death.  Plaintiff alleged that the patient had a significant cardiac history, with multiple risk factors, which warranted  close monitoring in a Telemetry Unit.  Mr. Nichols did not dispute causation, rather, successfully demonstrated that the patient was stable and did not require telemetry monitoring.
