In a high profile case, Donald Brown and Michael Dailey successfully obtained a defense verdict in favor of a local colorectal surgeon. Plaintiff alleged that the Defendant was negligent when performing a complete protectomy on the Plaintiff. During the procedure, the Plaintiff sustained an anoxic injury that resulted in brain damage, which ultimately led to her death three months later. After three days of deliberations, the Jefferson County jury returned a defense verdict in favor of the colorectal surgeon while assessing over $9,000,000 dollars in damages against the hospital.
