La Cava & Jacobson, P.A. Obtains Verdict In Favor For Highlands Regional Hospital

David Nelson and Matt Tucy obtained a directed verdict in favor of Highlands Regional Hospital in a claim involving the emergency room care of the plaintiff who fractured his leg while out hunting. In the Complaint, it was alleged that the hospital had violated s. 395.1041, Fla. Stat., Florida’s “anti-dumping” statute by failing to provide him with appropriate care. After 3 days of a jury trial the Judge granted the hospital’s motion for directed verdict and followed up with a detailed written order explaining his reasoning. The hospital subsequently made a claim for attorney’s fees and costs pursuant to a proposal for settlement that was rejected by the plaintiff early on. The hospital ultimately decided to forego further pursuit of an award for attorney’s fees and costs when it was clear that the plaintiff was judgment proof.
