Medical Malpractice Case Against an Internal Medicine Physician

Tricia Le Meur successfully defended a medical malpractice case against an internal medicine physician. The Plaintiff claimed that, following her scheduled office visit, the physician improperly left her alone in the examination room to get down from the examination table unassisted. The Plaintiff fell, sustaining both a hip fracture and arm injury. The Plaintiff sought just under $270,000.00 in damages. After a brief deliberation, the jury returned a unanimous defense verdict in favor of the physician.
