Lou La Cava and Barbara Chapman obtained a defense verdict for neurologist
Lou La Cava and Barbara Chapman obtained a defense verdict in a medical malpractice case tried in Pinellas County. The plaintiff alleged that the defendant neurologist negligently diagnosed the plaintiff with a stroke when she actually was suffering from a spinal epidural abscess. The plaintiff argued that had the diagnosis been made sooner the plaintiff would not have suffered severe neurological deficits which have confined her to a wheel chair since 2008. After a 6 day trial the jury returned a verdict finding the Defendant physician not negligent.
