Mark Hammond and Joseph Klausing successfully defended an Evansville podiatrist in a medical malpractice action. Plaintiff claimed our client negligently treated her plantar flexed metatarsals as well as Morton’s neuroma in the second and third interdigital space. The defense maintained that all treatment provided by our podiatrist was well within the standard of care, and that any injuries sustained by the plaintiff were not the result of actions or inactions of our client. After five days of testimony, the jury found unanimously in favor of the podiatrist. This marks the sixth time O’Bryan, Brown & Toner has obtained a unanimous defense verdict in Evansville since 2007.
