Bill Lamson and Denise Destache represented a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) at trial beginning on August 20th . After a 5-day trial, the jury found for the CRNA in less than 1 hour! The case involved a patient who had been hospitalized for complications of alcohol abuse. The patient’s family sued the CRNA, alleging that a medication given prior to an emergency intubation caused the patient to suffer a cardiac arrest resulting in permanent brain injury. Mr. Lamson and Ms. Destache successfully presented evidence that the medical cause of the cardiac arrest was, instead, progressive hypoxia and other complications of alcohol withdrawal; and that there was no negligence on the part of the CRNA.
