Paul Weathington and Heather McGrotty obtained a defense verdict for an orthopaedic spine surgeon after a one week medical malpractice trial in Cobb County State Court. Plaintiff alleged a pedicle screw was impinging upon a nerve root requiring a re-do surgery as well as ongoing severe pain that prevented him from working. The jury did not agree there was convincing evidence of a nerve root impingement. Additionally, plaintiff’s immediate post op pain complaints were not supported by the medical records. The jury deliberated for under 2 hours before rendering a defense verdict.
