Jon Corr Obtains Defense Verdict in Jury Trial for Hospital in Medical Malpractice Case.

On March 20, 2013, Jon Corr received a defense verdict from the jury in Yolo County Superior Court on behalf of a well known hospital.  The jury voted 12-0 in favor of the hospital finding no liability.   Plaintiff had been admitted to the hospital with pneumonia and contracted clostridium difficile bacterium.  She alleged that on discharge she was not provided appropriate medications and instructions on how to treat the infection which she claimed resulted in her becoming severely ill, requiring an emergency colostomy surgery and subsequent hospitalizations.  Jon argued that plaintiff was provided the appropriate medication and care at the hospital.  Following ten days of trial the jury returned a unanimous defense verdict after deliberating for approximately 3 1/2 hours.  Jon Corr is a partner at Porter Scott has over 15 years experience representing health care providers in medical malpractice lawsuits.
