Hull Barrett Obtains Defense Verdict for Client in Medical Malpractice Defense Case

Hull Barrett, PC attorneys, James V. Painter and Amanda D. Lynde, recently obtained a defense verdict in the Superior Court of Richmond County in a medical malpractice defense suit. Mr. Painter and Mrs. Lynde defended a local Obstetrician in a case claiming failure to diagnose preeclampsia in a prenatal patient, which allegedly lead to an optic nerve injury and vision loss in one eye. After a week-long trial, a Richmond County jury deliberated for 3 ½ hours and returned a defense verdict on behalf of both Defendant physicians stating the standard of care for the patient was not violated.
