In a two-week trial beginning in late March 2023, James Grohmann successfully defended a Louisville surgical oncologist and his employer against claims for medical malpractice in Jefferson Circuit Court. Plaintiff alleged our client negligently misdiagnosed a recurrence of gastric cancer one-year post-surgery. Grohmann argued that it was not a misdiagnosis based upon the surgeon’s clinical correlation of multiple factors, including the plaintiff’s naturally evolving spleen post-surgery. The case involved the comparison and analysis of multiple CT-scans and expert testimony regarding gastric cancer, gastric resection operations and the proper surveillance of gastric cancer post-surgery. The plaintiff, a physician, had claimed damages for destruction of earning capacity, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and punitive damages. However, at the end of the trial, the jury rendered a verdict in favor of our client.
