Tim Holland obtains defence verdict for Monroe County doctor

Tim Holland obtained a defense verdict for doctor in Monroe County in a Depakote/Liver toxicity case.  The case involved the claim that the defendants physicians failed to order frequent liver function testing for the patient.   The defense was that liver function testing is indicated every six months in the absence of clinical symptoms of hepatitis.  The defense successfully defended the care and established that even if the patient had undergone earlier liver function testing, the patient’s injury would not have been prevented.  A jury returned a verdict of no negligence and no causation in favor of the defense.
