Medical Malpractice - Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) - Nurse Anesthetist

The Peterson Bernard team successfully collected attorney’s fees and costs from a Plaintiff in a medical malpractice in Palm Beach County, Florida.  In June of 2005, Dennis Vandenberg and his team obtained a defense verdict after a two week jury trial in which the Plaintiff alleged that the Defendant certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) failed to properly intubate the Plaintiff during an emergency surgery to remove a small bowel obstruction.  The Plaintiff aspirated gastric content and developed acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and alleged cognitive and physical impairment.  After dropping his appeal in March of 2006, the Plaintiff paid attorney’s fees and costs incurred by the defense from approximately 1 year before trial through verdict.
