Prince Georges County Medical Malpractice Verdict For Ill-Treated Infection

A Prince Georges County jury returned a $1.3 million dollar verdict for medical malpractice associated with treatment of a gun shot wound. The jury verdict returned on Sept. 17, 2009 will be reduced by the trial judge to bring it in conformance with Maryland law.

The verdict reduction is the result of onerous laws passed during one of Maryland's past fictional "malpractice crises."

The actual verdict total of $1,344,455.44 will be reduced to something in the neighborhood of $1,156,995.44.

This wrongful death and survival medical malpractice verdict was unique in that the jury deliberated for less than an hour. The plaintiffs , the Estate of John William Lucas and his surviving wife and sons, appear to have been ably represented in this case and have our condolences.
