James Grohmann was successful in defending a Lexington orthopedic surgeon. Plaintiff accused the surgeon of negligence in the debridement of non-healing wounds after leg bypass surgery. Plaintiff maintained that the alleged negligence of the surgeon led to the loss of his leg. Plaintiff sought in excess of $500,000.00 in damages. Grohmann defended the case by submitting evidence that the surgeon acted appropriately and that the complication could not have been anticipated or prevented. In addition, evidence was submitted documenting several other causes for plaintiff’s leg amputation.
