Virginia: Medical Malpractice – a Lawyer’s Malpractice

AAJ’s March 2013 Trial issue also reports 2 medical malpractice topics. One is under “Verdicts and Settlements,” the other a feature article.

“Oxycodone Overdose” details a Florida jury verdict for $5,330,000.00 for wrongful death. The victim patient had been prescribed hundred of Oxycodone pills before dying in his home. Id. at 10-11.

“Establish Elopement Liability” deals with nursing home responsibility for residents allowed to wander off-premises. More complex than they may seem, such professional negligence cases required experienced lawyers to evaluate facility assessment, intervention, responses, etc. Id. at 36-39.

Mr. Waterman has a wrongful death case no. CL11-1316 pending in Williamsburg, Myron M. Arshan, Executor of the Estate of Sharon L. Britt, Deceased v. Stephen E. Plotnick, M.D., et al. It seeks $10,350,000.00 for fatal overdose of Fentanyl, Methadone and Olanzapine.

He also currently has several nursing home cases locally. Most are patient falls, including at least two for wrongful death.

THE VIRGINIA STATE BAR REQUIRES ALL LAWYERS TO POST THE FOLLOWING DISCLAIMERS ON ALL CASE-RELATED POSTS. MR. WATERMAN’S CASE RESULTS AND CLIENT TESTIMONIALS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. THEY DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE BY HIM.
