Foley & Mansfield’s Miami trial team of Kevin O’Connor, Kelly Casey and Mary Street mounted a successful defense this month in a case that involved allegations against our client, a cardiologist. The suit alleged that our client negligently ordered a transesophageal echocardiogram for the Plaintiff, which ultimately resulted in a perforation of her esophagus.
Plaintiff asked the jury for more than $750,000 in damages. Following 3 hours of deliberation in this two-week trial, the jury returned a defense verdict for our client. Judge Reemberto Diaz of the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida presided.
