Lou La Cava and Justine Adamski obtained a wrongful death defense verdict

Lou La Cava and Justine Adamski obtained a defense verdict for their client in a wrongful death case tried in Hillsborough County. The Plaintiff alleged the defendant urologist was negligent in choosing to perform a robotic prostatectomy on a patient who had a coagulation disorder. Plaintiff further alleged that if the surgery was going to be performed, the patient should have been bridged with Lovenox to prevent the development of Deep Vein Thrombosis. The patient did develop DVTs after surgery and ultimately died. After a six day trial the jury returned a verdict finding the urologist was not negligent.
