By April 17, 2023No Comments

Kiernan Trebach trial attorneys Charles Sipe and Jessica Flage obtained a defense verdict in favor of a Danville, Virginia skilled nursing facility after a 5 day jury trial. The case involved a resident of our client’s facility who developed a deep tissue injury, resulting in a stage 4 pressure ulcer, and osteomyelitis before passing away 19 months after the onset of her ailments.

Our trial team prevailed against Plaintiff’s claims that our client caused the ulcer, worsened the ulcer (an allegation shared with a co-defendant health care facility), and eventually resulted in the resident’s death. After receiving more than 4,000 pages of medical records, over $700,000 in claimed medical bills, and photographic evidence, and with consideration of our team’s compelling closing argument, the jury entered a defense verdict in favor of our client in just under 3 hours.
