ATLANTA, GA — On Tuesday, WEATHINGTON Partner David C. Hanson, accompanied by Associate Liza Linginfelter, presented oral arguments before an intermediate appellate panel comprised of Presiding Judge Anne E. Barnes, Judge Trenton Brown and Judge Kenneth Hodges, III of the Georgia Court of Appeals. Mr. Hanson argued in defense of an Atlanta-based hand surgeon who reattached the wrong fingertips to a patient’s hand during emergency surgery at Piedmont Hospital in 2016. Specifically, Mr. Hanson challenged the Plaintiff’s expert’s qualifications for determining that the surgeon had violated the standard of care during an otherwise successful reattachment of two of the patient’s three amputated fingertips.
