A Boyd County jury found in a favor of an endocrinologist. During hospitalization for cardiac treatment, plaintiff had been placed on Amiodarone by her cardio-thoracic surgeon. Plaintiff alleged her dosage of Amiodarone was incorrect at discharge. Plaintiff alleged that the defendant, an endocrinologist, should have altered her cardiac medications. Plaintiff claimed to have suffered permanent damage, including partial blindness as a result of an Amiodarone overdose. Plaintiff sought millions of dollars for pain and suffering and future care. James Grohmann successfully argued that the endocrinologist had not deviated from the accepted standard of care, and that the plaintiff’s medical complaints were not attributable to side effects of Amiodarone.
